The next Industrial "Revolution" has begun - we like to call it Industrial Refactoring.
While the demands of the industrial sector increase, a historic opportunity exists to change the underlying processes that serve them. We call this point in time the Industrial Refactoring, borrowing from the technical refactoring of code. And while we love revolutions as much as the next person, we don't think it will all look like a revolution.
Unprecedented technological transformations produce unprecedented possibilities. Within a few years, civilization has witnessed multiple paradigm-shifting innovations - ranging from AI/ML to cloud computing - come online simultaneously. The convergence of these innovations provides fertile ground for new age pioneers to alter how the world operates. The potential of these innovations is obvious, but the application is still in the early phases.
The refactoring is grounded in applications, not technology.
Application via Innovation
Companies that leverage recent technological innovations to provide a fundamentally new approach to serve existing needs recently made feasible due to technological advancements that provide a fundamentally new approach to serve an existing need. Example: 3D printed houses.
Application via Transformation
Companies that leverage recent technological advancements to reshape existing products and processes to enable and unlock superior levels of efficiency, productivity, and sustainability. Example: technology enabled supply chain optimization.
