2019 Event

Join GrayMatter & GE Digital for Digital Industrial Transformation Day in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is in transformation mode. The winners of its Industrial Revolution will master data and insights.

Digital Industrial Transformations are critical to the future of manufacturing, energy and utility companies and they’re underway right here in Pittsburgh. As the stakes get higher, it’s important to measure and share real results helping companies win.

Join GrayMatter’s CEO and CMU grad Jim Gillespie to learn how companies like Komatsu (formerly Joy Global) and GE Transportation are drastically reducing maintenance and operations time using the industrial internet.

We’ll go behind the scenes of GE Transportation’s journey – how it all started and what the future holds.

Tom Chill, Director of MES & Brilliant Factory at GE Digital will lead discussions on how to scale transformation within your business from people to process. Plus, you’ll see how to build a cyber strategy along with the transformation.

See Digital Industrial Transformations in action, including lessons learned, powerful technology tools and necessary culture change.

*GrayMatter is one of Pittsburgh’s fastest growing companies– helping some of the biggest industrial companies harness data to transform operations and empower their people.
