Whilst recent economic forces have disrupted our business causing financial hardships and major structural changes, advancing technologies offer many opportunities to transform what we do and how we do it.  Innovations in hardware and software are coming together in new ways allowing us to measure, control, automate and deploy intelligence in a wide range of systems.  We are entering a truly digital age where many systems will be augmented by intelligent agents.  Automation has broken out of the factory, out of machines and into software systems. Devices are communicating in unprecedented ways.

Focusing more on the hardware, in this session, we will look at the transformation so far, the benefits accrued and the changes we need to make to maximise the value and impact.  Drawing on the experience of other industries, we will look at future trends, what is possible and what the future could look like and what we need to do to achieve it from technology to people.

We will highlight links to other sessions including the security challenges and the value of big data.
