Overview

Join us at Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial trade fair, where thousands of experts from across the globe will gather to share and discover tomorrow’s greatest industrial technology trends.

Accenture’s Industry X.0 at #HM19 will concentrate on how companies can leverage digital to reinvent their value propositions first and their businesses second—by creating new revenue streams through connected products and digital services. Together, we’ll find out how you can go from early experiments, to creating smart products and services at scale, to reinventing entire businesses—and industries, as well.

Uncover how to tap into the true value of digital with Accenture’s Digital Service Factory and other Industry X.0 offerings through a program full of high-value key note presentations, real-life Industry X.0 demos, and best practices for managing product reinvention, digital transformation and the pivot to an Industry X.0 business.

We live in a world where technology is disrupting our lives, constantly changing customer needs and market demands. Now more than ever, companies need to transform at their core to deliver new, innovative products and the seamless experiences expected by today’s industrial customer. Soon enough, digital technology and software could be the only value drivers in hardware devices. That means core product lines and business functions not only need a major digital overhaul but an entirely new breed of “living” products: adaptable, responsive and collaborative hardware, that is more autonomous. To guide your product journey, we’ve created the Product Reinvention Grid (PRG), an analytics tool chart that maps out the Intelligence Quotient and an Experience Quotient of your product.

Hear experts dish the details of a step-by-step roadmap by coming to our panel at Hannover Messe. Visit the Accenture booth to learn how to successfully manage the profound transformation of your business.

There are many questions when it comes to the digitization of businesses: How can digital business models contribute to the creation of real revenue on Industry 4.0 platforms? How can companies digitally evolve or even reinvent themselves, and what do they need in order to do this? How can German and international companies remain successful in the face of global trade conflicts, political crises, and economic disruption? What does Germany – and Europe’s – ‘platform future’ (the ‘third way’) look like? And what needs to happen to make sure the region identifies its own platform economy (vis a vis the U.S. an Chinese platform economies)? Attend our evening event at Hannover Messe to explore answers to these questions, gain insight into the hottest topics facing industry today, and learn more about how digital business models support end-to-end industry reinvention.

There is no doubt that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will eventually be adopted by nearly all product categories and create the best user experience—better than ever before. AI technologies turn hardware products into “living” devices, making them able to sense, understand, act and learn with increasing autonomy. In today’s digital era, product companies need to put its users at the heart of innovation and build enough momentum to add AI capabilities. So not only do the newly-updated products meet customer demands, they exceed expectations. So far, our research indicates that only 16 percent of industrial companies have a clear AI product vision and even less have a committed and funded roadmap.

Attend our panel at Hannover Messe to find your AI vision. From insights into what AI can do for you to charting the path to increasing levels of product intelligence and value, you won’t want to miss out!

Smart connected products open a new realm of possibilities, improving both the manufacturing and customer journey. With technology continuing to evolve, it’s crucial for product companies to revamp their research and development practices. Traditional, linear hardware development routines must be morphed into looped iteration runs followed by continuous shaping and improvement of the product after shipping, based on usage data reported back by products to manufacturers. This paradigm shift from accustomed engineering approaches to agile “Engineering in the New” concepts and methods can be rewarding, if successfully implemented. The result? It can yield ten times better product development efficiency and effectiveness.

Join our panel to get the download on how novel engineering and experience design skills—supported by tools such as digital threads and unified data models—enable agile product businesses to develop next-generation devices.

Platform business models are gaining popularity across a number of industries. Cars for example are well advanced towards being driven by connectedness and software intelligence, making the options for platform models even more compelling. Platform business models can gain enormous economic power and translate it into equally enormous market value, also as seen by the retail platforms run by your favorite Internet giants. What’s your platform strategy? Many hardware device makers start by determining whether they should build their own platform or become a platform partner. It’s equally crucial to decide what type of platform models to choose or participate in and soon enough, opting out of the platform game won’t be a choice. So, get onboard now!

Join our debate at Hannover Messe to learn how to best arrive at viable platform strategies as a product maker and how to make it a successful part of your smart connected product approach.
