3rd Conference on


Beyond Transformation: Evolving the Digital Enterprise

In recent years, the industrial world, and in particular the manufacturing sector, has been affected by a digital transformation, capable of strongly influencing production processes and business dynamics. This transformation is called Industry 4.0.
Industry 4.0 contributes to a revolution in all sectors including the economic, academic, research, industrial and manufacturing ones. The implementation of Industry 4.0 requires a change in many technologies, namely automation, identification, IT communication, digital production, production process, management of production control, decision making, judgment, detection, and analysis. Industry Digital Evolution (IDE) is, therefore, a continuous process of corporate change supported by a highly innovative strategic and multidisciplinary vision focused on the combination of different organizational, technological and cultural variables, in order to make companies more competitive and resilient. The new edition of IDE 2020 "Beyond Transformation: Evolving the Digital Enterprise" Conference wants to take up the challenge of exploring the theme of corporate evolution by designing possible operational scenarios that guide companies along a coherent and effective path of continuous innovation and constant research. During its three days, qualified speakers from the academic and industrial world will exchange views and share their experiences with Digital Evolution. The four sessions of the school will allow covering a wide range of digital solutions already developed or about to be introduced in the industrial context, and which are the subject of research projects and studies by the academy.
