Sage to host Industry 4.0 round tables
Lunch discussions in Saudi to focus on disruptive technologies, industrial transformation
Sage Middle East is set to host two lunch round table events in Saudi Arabia to discuss trends in disruptive technologies next week, under the patronage of HRH Prince Khaled bin Al Waleed.
The discussion will focus on how technological integration and innovation will lead to different markets and value networks in the future displacing the old markets and methodologies, the company said.
The two events take place at the the Four Seasons Hotel, Kingdom Foyer A, Kingdom Centre, Riyadh on the 11th October, and at the Le Meridien Hotel, Al Khobar on the 13th October.
"Through our discussions we want to outline to the business community here in Saudi Arabia, the trends to watch out for, and highlight the products and services Sage can provide to mitigate and manage these challenging but fascinating changes," said Jeremy Waterman, managing director Sage Enterprise.
One of the main topics for discussion will be ‘Industry 4.0', defined as the fourth wave of the industrial revolution operating within the universe of the internet of things, people, services and data where communication between machines (M2M) without the need for human intervention is a striking feature.
Sensor technology, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing are some examples of technologies that are used in work flows of organisations operating in an Industry 4.0 environment. Organisations operating in an Industry 4.0 environment adhere to the four defining characteristics of Industry 4.0: vertical networking, horizontal integration, through-engineering, and acceleration through exponential technologies.
"In addition, to discussing characteristics of the Industry 4.0 and its implications for business growth, we want to showcase our readiness to tackle the future through our products and services, especially Sage X3," commented Keith Fenner, chief sales officer, Sage X3 AAMEA, executive director and head of Sage Middle East.
