The unimaginable impact of the pandemic across the globe has forced individuals and businesses to rethink their strategies, solutions and the way they operate. With the urgency to adapt to the new normal and propel them to grow, being the need of the hour, Rockwell Automation, introduced, ‘India Inc. on the Move’. This two-day virtual summit, witnessed industry leaders across various sectors and industries offer solutions to entrepreneurs with an in-person experience to attendees, focussing on the theme of the event - ‘Getting the Indian manufacturing diaspora on global centre stage’.

In addition to presenting participants the opportunity to interact with top business leaders, the summit featured several insightful sessions. Each one of them highlighted the importance of automated technology with advanced operational and manufacturing systems for startups and entrepreneurs.

Adding immense value and perspective, these virtual sessions catered to a host of diverse sectors that included pharma and life sciences, chemical and heavy industries, automotive, and FMCG sectors. Shedding light on the motto, the virtual summit’s  sessions motivated viewers by showing possibilities of advanced systems helping businesses offer a variety of products to their customers.

The event witnessed veterans such as Scott Wooldridge, president, APAC, Rockwell Automation; Dileep Mangsuli, CTO, GE Healthcare; Mayank Singhal, CMD of PI Industries; and Venkatesh Natarajan, CDO of Ashok Leyland; to name a few, engage in insightful conversations around the topics of Monetising Business Outcomes with IIOT Platforms, Flexible and Independent Cart Technology for Smarter Machines, Blockchain in Supply Chain, and Digital Innovation in Consumer Goods Manufacturing. Add to that, the virtual summit saw a host of leadership sessions that were centred around digital transformation in the manufacturing space, featuring Amit Syngle, MD and CEO, Asian Paints, and Jagdish Ramaswamy, president and chief digital officer, Hindalco Industries Limited, amongst others.

Speaking on the current priorities for Indian manufacturers looking to accelerate digitisation, Scott Wooldridge, president, APAC, Rockwell Automation, revealed, “The pandemic has created the need for a more agile and faster decision-making environment. Augmented Reality (AR) based training capabilities has played an instrumental role in the rapid upskilling of people. Adding to the above, data analytics has enabled manufacturers to get visibility into new business cycles and react quickly to upscale or downscale. By laying impetus to these two tools, businesses can accelerate their manufacturing success by doubling down on strategic bets to find their competitive advantage.”

Dilip Sawhney, MD, Rockwell Automation India, said, “Over the last few months, India Inc. has done a good job of showcasing resilience by learning to live with the realities of the pandemic. The biggest challenge manufacturers face today is in ensuring the continuity of critical operations with a less workforce. This has seen seamless remote collaboration between operators and domain experts come to the fore. This is especially important in highly regulated sectors where, along with remote access, we also need to ensure a high level of security. This is where our digital technologies have been playing a central role.”
