What’s on the horizon:
Industrial manufacturing and retail are living through a massive revolution of digitalization. As an automation and robotics engineer, I am dedicated to drive Accenture’s Internet of Things agenda to help my clients to move to new areas whether they are integrated engineering and manufacturing, automated supply chain operations in warehouses or even mobility tools for the future connected field engineer. In all these cases, the new solutions are based on connectedness, analytics and intelligence.
