Best-Laid Plans: How 2020 Reshaped Industrial Innovation Priorities

2020 has forced industrial companies to rethink how they harness technology to innovate. Maersk Drilling and Wood detail their priorities

Ever-increasing cost pressures, changing market dynamics, and rising competition are making industrial companies rethink how they harness technology to innovate.

While technology has transformed the lives of consumers, it has yet to make its full mark on the industrial world. Individual technologies are gradually proving their value, but where’s the sweeping change?

This session will look at how two globally leading industrial service companies, Maersk Drilling and Wood, are betting on innovation to increase revenues and expand margins. We’ll discuss innovation strategies that the industry is following and their effects on digital product and service development, customer-supplier relationships, ecosystems, and more.
