Dubai, UAE, 21st January 2021: AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, today announced its third AVEVA World Digital (AWD) conference, themed ‘Accelerate Your Digital Intelligence’ which will take place from 26-28 January 2021.
The online event will explore how leading companies are embracing innovation and applying intelligent software to reshape their industrial operations. It will demonstrate how emerging technologies such as AI, Cloud, Digital Twin, Visualisation and data & analytics are supporting advancements in sustainability, and enabling organisations to make significant changes to improve the environment.
Technology is playing a vital role in achieving real-time optimisation, improving decision-making, and digitally enabling business operations, supported by an often-remote workforce to drive substantial cost reductions. Furthermore, with COVID-19 exposing pressures on the industrial sector, sustainable business strategies have come to the forefront with CTOs now seeing sustainability as part of the transformation imperative. As a result, organisations, are adopting real-time environmental monitoring to reduce the carbon emissions of heavy industries. Visualisation, Digital Twin, Machine Learning and AI are technologies that are helping to manage these priorities.
