Today is all about digital transformation, serving customers through apps and websites, or capturing all kinds of data through sensors and doing great things with it. All that information and the success stories obviously make people dream about how that would work in their own context.

Everyone is talking about digitisation these days, but what does it actually imply for your production? We immerse ourselves in the subject and help you make a tangible difference to your business and your customer with digitisation.

Technological product innovation can be a way of staying one step ahead of the competition. But only if it is based on a clear and well-considered vision. That vision does not necessarily have to lead to the development of smart products. But companies should not hesitate to ask themselves how smart products might transform their business and benefit their customers.

The international collaborative research project BIMy has been awarded with the ITEA Award of Excellence for Innovation. The ITEA project BIMy focused on how building information modelling (BIM) can be used and exploited beyond its normal use, and how to improve integration of BIM and geographic information systems (GIS). It created a shared space for digital representations of construction projects in their environments, enabling collaboration between multiple stakeholders within the Smart City domain and paving the road for new applications.

Health-tech companies can expect cybersecurity and privacy requirements to increase swiftly in the future, since the medical industry at large is climbing the ranks of easy targets of criminal gangs. Therefore Agoria and Sirris dedicated a number of 'learning snippets' to the topic of cybersecurity as a sales enabler in health-tech & med-tech during summer. How to turn theory into practice?

Customers and their products are changing rapidly, the manufacturing industry is adapting. To remain competitive, production systems must be increasingly agile and smart, with the operator taking on an increasingly important role. This calls for solutions that can reduce the physical and cognitive strain on operators, which is why Sirris set up a testing ground on operator support. The project is now coming to an end, a good opportunity to present the results!

"Hyperscale and Microcare are the key drivers of the digital economy." Each of our interviews with people from extremely different digital backgrounds started with this sentence. These took place as part of our cooperation with Bloovi on digital transformation in a Belgian context. We extracted the key takeaways from those fascinating discussions, which we share with you in this very last part.

Industry 4.0 stands for far-reaching digitisation of production and is a goal for many companies today. Including companies with metalworking activities. However, digitisation, standardisation and automation require first and foremost efficient and controlled machining processes. In a webinar series, we will refresh the basic knowledge and link it to digital evolution. In this webinar, we discuss how to switch from trial-and-error to a structured testing approach.
