Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Aerospace and defense manufacturing operating in post Covid-19 economic climate

27th July 2020 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm EST
How can A&D manufacturers use Industry 4.0 technologies like cloud, analytics, and AI to optimize business operations while ensuring government compliance?

Join a select group of senior thought leaders on this roundtable discussion as we dedicate 90 minutes to answering one of the most valuable questions in business today…

It’s no secret that broad technology advances driven by Industry 4.0 have been impacting the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry. This is fueling increased technology investments to secure and analyze data, modernize legacy applications, and shorten innovation cycles, all while meeting the ever-growing list of compliance mandates.

That said, the value that can be gained from augmenting business processes with modern technology far exceeds the cost. In fact, according to Deloitte, 84% of A&D executives said they consider leveraging new digital technologies as key to market differentiation.

Stringent regulatory requirements are a huge burden on the industry — no less so when it comes to harnessing new technologies. In particular, the newly released Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) will become a requirement for all defense suppliers beginning in Fall 2020. Yet, by effectively adopting Industry 4.0 solutions for business operations, A&D manufacturers can create synergies across workflows, achieve visibility and improvements in financial and operational performance, and better protect sensitive IP, as well as, customer data.

Join Infor and an exclusive group of your peers in a roundtable discussion on how to future-proof aerospace and defense operations in the age of Industry 4.0.
