Spotlight on ISA’s 2022 Digital Transformation Conference

Digital transformation revolutionizes how a business operates. However, it is not as simple as flicking a switch to take advantage of the latest technologies to improve efficiency and productivity. New systems, processes, workflows, and most of all, culture, come into play and need the proper training and learning to be fully realized. Affecting every level of an organization, taking advantage of more advanced workflow automation and processing, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), allows companies to unlock new possibilities than ever before.

The benefits to digital transformation are seemingly boundless. Enhanced data collection, resource management, collaboration, and increased profits are just some of the core improvements one might see from this new innovative way of doing business. With the COVID-19 pandemic pushing the growing use of digitalization and adoption efforts, digital transformation may require new skillsets for employees, while forcing a reevaluation of the change management culture for the C-suite levels of an organization.

ISA’s upcoming 2022 Digital Transformation Conference, taking place on 13 October 2022, aims to showcase the applications of technology that accelerate the design, certification, and start-up processes of business, while improving safety and efficiency for employees. The event will showcase subject matter experts sharing presentations on:

  • Barriers to value in implementing a Digital Transformation
  • Investing in Digital Transformation in 2022
  • Monetizing Digital Transformation
  • Bridging the gap in digitizing new fields
