Virtual Inspiration Event

Join the delaware Virtual Inspiration Event 

For all the uncertainty about what the future will look like, one thing is certain: it will be digital. With digital transformation being accelerated as we speak, we want to give you the opportunity to stay ahead.

Let us inspire you

On 28 October, delaware will be hosting its very first Virtual Inspiration Event. Our Inspiration Fairs have always been an opportunity for visitors to explore new technologies and see digital transformation trends in action – and that won’t be any different this year.

For our 2020 edition, however, we have decided to transform our annual gathering into a live virtual event. When it comes to digital transformation, now is the time to start putting theory into practice. Will you let us inspire you?

Smart Employee

Today's workplace is global, fast-paced and technology-driven. The Smart Employee has both the hard and soft skills needed to function in a 21st century work environment. They show flexibility, engagement and are committed to the Digital Workplace. By experimenting with new ways of working, they have become crucial stakeholders in an ongoing workforce transformation.

  • Introducing the Digital Workplace at imec
  • How can digitalization and emerging technologies boost your maintenance processes?
  • The Future of Learning

Smart Factory

Smart Factories are highly digitized and connected production facilities that rely on smart manufacturing. Many manufacturing lines today are only 60% productive, so there are tremendous opportunities for improvement. Smart Factories take on a ‘minimal waste, maximum value’ approach and strive for Overall Equipment Effectiveness. In other words: The Smart Factory does more with less – machines, people, resources.

  • Agristo's move to SAP S/4HANA
  • How we put Industry 4.0 into practice at our customers
  • Renewing the Supply Chain at Joris Ide

Smart Business

In an interconnected and automated world, the Smart Business survives – and thrives. The Smart Business knows that digital transformation is a journey rather than a destination. It creates effortless experiences, both for its customers and for its employees. The Smart Business takes advantage of the latest technological developments such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and AR/VR.
