Creating a digital workforce for your operations

Posted by Najat Khalil on May 25, 2021 2:00:00 PM

The next wave of technological advancements is emerging. New technologies are expected to reduce the number of workers required to perform specific tasks while increasing demand for other skills.

 

A digital workforce is a workforce with personnel focused on high-value tasks and empowered with actionable data from digital technologies and services that lead to improved decision-making in daily operations. Similarly, a digital worker is considered an individual that applies actionable data from digital technologies and services to make improved decisions, automate manual functions, increase productivity, or convert information into revenue. 

 

More talent will be retiring in the next couple of years, making it more crucial than ever for you to strategize your workforce by upskilling your people to continue running operations effectively.

Leveraging IIoT cloud software and technology

Posted by Najat Khalil on May 20, 2021 1:45:00 PM

There's a new sense of confidence that companies can remain operational with improved efficiencies by employing digital tools, reducing costs, and acquiring the best assets. For a long time, companies kept operations going during challenging times by decreasing LOE’s, deferring maintenance expenses, divesting properties with higher costs, cutting production, laying off personnel. Instead of relying on these traditional methods, companies should instead focus on creating digital operations by installing IIoT software.

 

More Customers are using Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and strategizing their digital journey to improve work processes, improve production, and begin the path to operational excellence.
