Efficiency and safety—two words most people would associate with in an industrial plant environment. But what about cloud technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), smart sensors, analytics, wearables and even sustainable solutions?
New research from Accenture reveals how technology is unlocking the power of digital in the chemicals industry. Do you have the skills required to work as entire industries are reinvented?
To stay competitive and relevant in today’s business landscape, industry after industry is embracing digital technology—and chemical companies are no different. Technology is playing a key role in enabling significant improvements to plant operations and safety, and some technological advances could even drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
As companies unlock the power of Industry X.0, they need a digital-ready workforce. Sourcing, training and retaining talent with digital-ready skills and enabling active collaboration between people and machines is imperative to business success—and to your future career.
Six business imperatives are helping to guide plans as industries ramp up their digital efforts. Here’s what you need to know—and how you can help:
Transform the core. Drive new levels of operating efficiency by combining the “old” and the “new” to work in concert.
Focus on experience and outcomes. “Smart touchpoints” are being used to enable hyperpersonalized experiences for employees and customers.
Challenge existing operating models. Digital capabilities are enabling the overall portfolio of assets to become more flexible, responsive and efficient—and competitive.
Build a digital-ready workforce. Gain the skills to enable active collaboration between people and machines.
Rearchitect ecosystems. Companies are drawing from a robust ecosystem of suppliers, distributors and startups to enable the rapid adoption of new digital solutions.
