You’ve heard the pitch by now – share your process data with Service Provider X, and we’ll double your productivity, cut your costs in half and ensure that the coffee in the break room is always hot. A recent study by Forrester estimates that more than 70% of global data and analytics decision-makers are already expanding their ability to use external data, while another 17% plan to in the next 12 months.

But, this is your data, the secret sauce of what makes your company great. What should you share, how can you make sure it’s being used properly, and stays protected from cybercriminals?

Leveraging the cloud to share real-time data with external stakeholders optimizes process performance and asset management by using expertise beyond the enterprise. Companies can maximize the value of their extensive, shared data resources and work collaboratively to uncover new opportunities.

Join us for this webinar to explore:

  • New ways to innovate, collaborate and operate faster with an enterprise-wide strategy, while maintaining maximum security and control
  • The challenges and opportunities with uniting disparate industrial elements, with tips to ensure a measurable and scalable ROI
  • How the concept of the smart industrial enterprise is evolving, including a selection of real-world use cases
