Advances in Digital Technologies and Business Models that will Transform the Naval Sector
09 Sep 2019
As seen in other industrial sectors, digitalisation is not just driving internal efficiencies and improvements in operating costs, but also changing the nature of the traditional relationships between solution / service providers and customers. Historically, industry and defence organisations have had a transactional approach to acquiring products and services based on long procurement cycles. Digitalisation can bring a new level of inter connectivity between companies and military end users, disrupting these traditional interactions by offering new service solutions that are based on digital platforms. The aim of the presentation is to discuss the impact of digitalisation on defence solutions in the future by exploring:
- How global defence industry is implementing digitalisation / Industry 4.0 strategies.
- Examine how digitalisation is impacting defence customers in terms of combat operations (digitalisation of the battlespace), training and other other back office services.
- Explore potential digital products and services and how new business models could potentially be implemented within the defence sector.
