The Revolution Evolution

From steam to electricity to the digital age we have been preparing for our ultimate journey: the 4th Industrial Revolution, where intelligence is reimagined!

X-Change has been a success for a quarter of a century because it has always delivered three consistent values: Business and networking opportunities, the key to improve operational benefits, and an unequalled view into the next-generation for the New Way of Work that enables transformation from Edge to Enterprise.

Don’t miss out on our technology sessions, hands-on demonstrations, peer-to-peer networking and getting your questions answered by the subject matter experts in your field!

Hybrid

At X-Change 2019, you will have the opportunity to listen to the experts discussing the challenges that Hybrid, including food and beverage and general manufacturers are facing. Topics will include changes with consumer demands, product traceability, operations visibility and strict regulatory compliance’s, relating to food safety. If you work in the Hybrid Industry, we encourage you to join this conference, where you will hear first-hand how IS³’s customers are addressing these challenges by making the most from existing investments and improving their operational efficiencies with the New Way of Work from Edge to Enterprise.

Mining, Metals & Minerals

As the dynamics of the future in mining continuously shifts, there are mines which have already embraced these changes. Your mine could also transform and realise the operational efficiency gains and increased profitability it brings. This comes from holistic planning, organisational change, and process re-engineering; the required parts for embracing the future of your mine. You need to understand your roadmap; what initiatives you can deploy, utilising the New Way of Work from Edge to Enterprise.

Utilities

To provide safe and reliable service to customers, utilities needs to meet key imperatives such as ensuring continuity of service, meeting customer satisfaction, meeting regulatory compliance, stewardship and retaining a skilled workforce. These imperatives serve as the foundation of an effective and resilient service. Despite the challenges, technology is readily available today which will help you in your organisation. Join us at X-Change 2019 to learn how the same technology that has helped other industries, can help you achieve significant operational improvements and cost reductions with the New Way of Work.

Oil and Gas

In an era of low oil & gas commodity prices, process improvements and technology, efficiencies emerge as a critical success factor. Digital technology breakthroughs have already made it possible for companies to seize upon these efficiency improvement gains, without having to incur high CAPEX and OPEX. X-Change 2019 will help you explore these technologies in discovering how the New Way of Work from Edge to Enterprise will help you in managing costs and reduce risks.
