Industry X.0: Reinvent Your Products to Capture Growth in the New

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 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. Join us to hear Eric Schaeffer, Senior Managing Director Industrial & Industry X.0 at Accenture, detail the step-by-step roadmap to product reinvention and explore how some companies are already creating living products of their own.
