New phenomenon - the Connected Industrial Economy

At the event, business leaders from Fortune 500 companies will share success stories from the frontlines of a new “connected industrial economy,” with an industry expert exclusively revealing why data is the future currency of value.

“As industries share data and become more interconnected, we see the development of what we’re calling the connected industrial economy – a new kind of collaboration across teams, suppliers, partners and customers to transform value chains into agile, profitable, sustainable networks,” said Peter Herweck, AVEVA’s CEO.

During the plenary, Shell Digital Project Leader Bart-Jan Ruules will reveal how the world’s most comprehensive digital twin drives higher business value, while Joe Bonnet, Group Director of Engineering at Worley, will speak about building an integrated digital backbone and their data-sharing partnership with AVEVA and Shell. Pfizer’s Marylène De Winter, Director Global Automation Engineering, and Peter Barry, Director – Pfizer Digital, will share how a data-centric approach to operations enabled innovation at lightspeed to deliver the world's first mRNA vaccine in record time, saving billions of lives during the pandemic.

Peter Herweck will bring together Roque Martin, CEO of Aras, and David Bartolo, Head of Asset Intelligence at AGL Energy, to discuss how connecting engineering and operational data enables industries to engineer smarter and operate better, while ensuring responsible use of our world's resources.

Roque Martin, CEO of Aras, said: “We have entered a strategic partnership with AVEVA to help organizations transform, manage their information across both the asset lifecycle and industry ecosystems, and develop well-defined and reliable digital twins. At AVEVA World, we will feature the first solution prototype of the partnership.”

On day three, Sheri Williams, Managing Director of Accenture, will look at the role of collaboration and talent diversity, and discuss how automation and robotics bridge the gap between demand and execution within a short timeframe.

The most hotly anticipated session will be the “Networks of the Future” panel, where some of the most original thinkers look at how the industries of the future will be connected in new ways. This will include how the digital twin is the foundation of the industrial metaverse.
