In this ProcessMiner University podcast, listen in as Doug Woods, President of the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) shares with Tom Tulloch, ProcessMiner CCO, his thoughts on how to get more value and ROI from your factory data. Hear how manufacturers are leveraging data to improve operations, what technologies manufacturers are investing in that seem to be delivering the most value or highest return on investment, along with advice on how to begin the digital transformation journey. With the rise of cloud computing, it’s becoming much less expensive, faster and easier to deploy software solutions, and that includes artificial intelligence. Given this fact, and given the rapid pace of technology adoption in manufacturing, Doug will give his predictions on if we will witness a lot of M&A activity in IoT and AI before interest rates go any higher, and what manufacturing will look like in five years.
