The conference provided actionable insights and effective strategies, empowering businesses to flourish amidst the ever-changing realm of smart manufacturing and digital transformation. The discussion addressed challenges related to data security, sustainable growth, unmatched efficiency, and impregnable cybersecurity.

Eric Foo, Executive VP & Head of Enterprise Business at Exabytes, highlighted how the cloud-powered Industry 4.0 revolution and IoT-driven data insights have ushered in a new era of smart manufacturing, industrial, and supply chain management, bridging OT and IT.
