Infor will highlight the importance of cloud-based, industry specific ERP solutions for organizations in the UAE to tap exceptional growth opportunities and support the UAE’s industrial strategy, at the UAE Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 & Summit on June 14-15.
The summit, where Infor is the lead sponsor, will bring together governmental regulators, large-scale manufacturers, international industry-leaders, and innovative technology and solution providers, to discuss the sector’s future growth.
Khaled AlShami, Infor’s vice president for solution consulting in MEA, will deliver a presentation about how Industry 4.0 is transforming the way organizations connect with customers, supply chain networks, plant and equipment, and employees to drive growth and raise efficiency. AlShami will also look at what companies can expect next from Industry 4.0 and how they can be ready to maximize its potential to turn the current challenges into opportunities.
Pranish Kushare, Infor’s senior principal for solution consulting, will offer further insights during a panel discussion about change management for the industrial sector. The panel will address key concerns including common challenges faced by manufacturers and industrial players, the role process and strategy plays in manufacturers’ efficiency and quality, and tackling the financial limitations many organizations face during their transformation.
“Industry 4.0 is more important than ever given the scale of the government’s ambitions, the need for local production, and the immense opportunity open to companies that can seize the moment and commit to digital transformation and continual innovation,” AlShami said. “Moreover, increased competition and challenges including supply chain issues and spiraling costs mean that organizations need to implement industry-specific cloud-based solutions to achieve the full promise of industry 4.0.”
