Cyber Threats Have Reached DEFCON 1 for Many Manufacturers. Here’s Why and How They Can Protect Themselves

Posted: May 4, 2022 Manufacturers already had it tough. Less than two years ago, the State of Encrypted Attacks revealed the sector was more vulnerable to malicious browser breaches than any other industry and took 38.6% of attacks. With the recent conflagration of geopolitics and Western security officials issuing warnings to US companies of cyber-attacks, many manufacturers have found themselves in a DEFCON 1 threat-level situation.

Architect for Innovation Using the Hidden Blueprint Inside Your Organization

Posted: April 27, 2022 Adapt, or die. This is the law of nature, but it holds equally true for businesses, and research reveals a surprising trend. Market leadership cycles are becoming shorter. Just a few decades ago, companies comprising the Fortune 500 were the unrivaled incumbents of the business world. The average life span of these organizations is steadily shrinking, decreasing from 61 years in 1958 to less than 18 years today. And this fact has caused the quest for adaptation and innovation to assume an unprecedented urgency.

How Digital Twinning Drives Cost-Effective Manufacture, Distribution, and More

Posted: April 6, 2022 As one industry leader put it, digital twinning is a way to break the laws of physics. How? Via simulations, companies that take advantage of this technology can travel back in time, accelerate time, and see into the future to gain actionable insights that drive business value.  From a technical perspective, digital twinning is the creation of an analytics model (or "mirror") of real-world systems, processes, and physical assets (inputs) that serve as the basis for processing real-time data and augmenting human decision-making. Using data from IoT sensors attached to input sources to analyze their real-time status, these virtual models and digital replicas enable AI programs or human operators to monitor and learn from them. This allows companies to quickly spot problems, improve operations, fuel efficiency, and increase ROI.
