Manufacturing and Resources

From the Summer 2015 issue of OnWindows magazine

OnWindows Manufacturing

Introduction: Çağlayan Arkan, General Manager, Worldwide Manufacturing & Resources, Microsoft

It’s hard to predict exactly what the manufacturing landscape will look like in the next few years, but one thing is for sure: the level of automation across the industry is going to increase in a big way. And it’s going to transform how manufacturers build, deliver and service their products. On page 84, I discuss some of the key areas Microsoft is focusing on to help manufacturers prepare for change.

You can also hear from Bill Moffett on page 90 about some of the ways in which manufacturers are shifting from product-centric to consumer-centric business models and, in turn, better engaging with their customers.
