With the fast pace of change after the COVID-19 pandemic, chemical companies need to be more agile and resilient than ever. Engineers must be able to develop new sustainable processes faster. The visibility of the value chain is critical to have agility in responding to market demands. Intelligent and efficient operations will ensure maximum uptime and profitability. And, finally, we need to empower our workforce to solve problems in creative and innovative ways.

Digital transformation is the answer, but fast implementation is not enough. There are many tools available today, and it can be challenging to select and implement technology. A digital transformation strategy must be carefully designed to ensure quick investment returns while reaching sustainability targets.

In this webinar, you will learn the top five approaches to accelerate your digital transformation journey to gain a competitive advantage:
• Engineer the digital plant of the future
• Value chain optimization
• Strategy for maximum uptime
• Workforce empowerment
• The intelligent chemical plant
