Delivering ROI on Fourth Industrial Revolution Technologies
The speaker and panel session on the day were dedicated to delivering the return on investment from 4IR technologies. During my address to the assembled leaders, I pointed out that, in my view, the defining issue of our generation in industry is not Brexit, but rather, how successfully we are able to adopt 4IR technologies.
I also welcomed the thoughts of our keynote speaker, the honourable Alan Mak MP, Chair and Founder of the CPPG on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, on how to progress this agenda in parliament.
The UK remains very well placed to be a leader in the new industrial age, and I am confident that UK industry will continue to move in the right direction.
What’s more, I feel keenly the responsibility of companies such as Rockwell Automation to support UK industry in discovering the ROI that is achievable with improvements in efficiencies, speed and profitability through the application of connected technology.
I’m very proud of how the Rockwell Automation UK team stepped up to this responsibility in 2018, and I’d like to go on record thanking them for their considerable efforts. We will continue to lead out through 2019 and take every opportunity to support UK industry in delivering its own potential.
For our customers, I believe that 2019 will be the year that the IIoT will begin to deliver really significant value. For those companies not yet applying a digital strategy, the ROI of those at the forefront will make the case for a Connected Enterprise irresistible, and we will also see its adoption amplify throughout industry this year.
