360 DEGREE INDUSTRY PERSPECTIVES

Industry Thought Leaders:
John Raspin, Partner, Energy & Environment, Frost & Sullivan

Dorman Followwill, Partner & Director, Frost & Sullivan
Ajay Sule, Practice Director and Vice President, Information & Communications Technologies, Frost & Sullivan
Muthukumar Viswanathan, Practice Director, Industrial Automation & Process Control and Measurement & Instrumentation, Frost & Sullivan
Dr. Henry Ji, Chief Executive Officer and President, Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc.

What are the key trends driving the ICT, Energy & Environment, Healthcare and Industrial industries? Hear a thought-leading domain expert from Frost & Sullivan introduce a 360 degree perspective on their respective industry.

ICT: Helping Connected Industries Embrace Big Data Analytics
The future of big data analytics and its application in connected industries is only limited by our collective imagination. As Pablo Picasso once said, “Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.” The ability to craft the right questions will determine the benefits from big data analytics. As the phrase, “big data analytics”, becomes commonplace, it is the responsibility of the ICT industry to help enterprises clarify who the data is for and for what purpose. The natural instinct of our sector is often to emphasise the technology, but it is equally important to focus on helping connected industries embrace and benefit from big data analytics in their respective markets.

Answering the Global Healthcare Innovation Mandate Though Frugal Innovation
One of the greatest challenges facing humanity is how to deliver quality healthcare to every patient globally in a sustainably affordable way. New thinking about innovation will be crucial to meeting this great challenge. We will discuss a new type of innovation ideally suited to address these global challenges: frugal innovation. We will look at a key case study and explore emerging business models based on frugal innovation as a new mean of translating the global healthcare innovation mandate into significant economic opportunity overtime.

Industry 4.0: The Dawn of the Future Factory
Industry 4.0 is the new industrial framework set to revolutionize the industrial scene. The key facets of industry 4.0, viz., internet of things, internet of services, big data and integrated industry, will leave a decisive impact across all sections of the manufacturing value chain. Understanding the idea of industry 4.0 and mapping its relevance across specific contexts will be an inevitable necessity for companies in future. In this ongoing transformation, the cross-pollination of ideas, technologies and processes, between multiple industries will result in the emergence of a number of new markets with high potential.

The Future of Energy & Environment:  The Need for Business Model Innovation
The Energy & Environment industry has witnessed massive levels of technology innovation in the past decade, accompanied by unprecedented levels of convergence.  But meanwhile, energy management is not as 'smart' as it could be because business models have not kept up with the pace of change - this is where the next wave of innovation is needed.  Clever companies are waking up to it - performance contracting is driving investment in energy efficiency; virtual power plants and demand response are enabling smart grid realisation - but more is needed and the future winners will be determined by their response now.

Executive Bulletin: 

IT'S PAST MIDNIGHT: DISCOVER HOW LEADING COMPANIES HAVE DEVELOPED ADAPTIVE, LEARNING SALES ORGANISATIONS TO DELIVER GROWTH IN A WORLD WHERE THE PACE OF CHANGE IS NOW FASTER THAN OUR ABILITY TO REACT

The 'midnight point' was the point at which the pace of change overtook our ability to react. Driven by powerful and accelerating Mega Trends, our traditional sales methods, models and approaches became outdated as customers, industries and the world around us changed. So what is in the DNA of those organisations who have flourished in this post-midnight world? In this session, we will look at the common characteristics shared by the highest growth and highest margin generating companies to see what it is their sales organisations do to a level of excellence that enables them to deliver sustained growth.
