  • Manufacturing Webinar: Six factors for a successful cloud adoption Recorded: Aug 14 2019 47 mins
    Paul Norton (Solution Director at Rackspace) and Nick Peters (Editorial Director at The Manufacturer)
    Manufacturers realise that they need to make changes. The previous methods or approaches that enabled your business to survive or grow are becoming obsolete in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, let alone tomorrow’s, and a decision to stick with them will likely inhibit future growth.

    But recognising the need for change is not the same as successfully implementing it. Many businesses have started to move towards cloud adoption, for example, but the returns are failing way short of their expectations.

    A principle reason for this is immature cloud adoption strategies, a result of businesses getting excited about the opportunities and not spending enough time on the planning / pre-implementation stage.
    This on-demand webcast addresses that challenge head-on and provides the guidance you need to ensure your business doesn’t fall at the first hurdle.

    Watch the webcast to hear Rackspace’s Paul Norton and The Manufacturer’s Editorial Director Nick Peters, clearly and simply define the six factors that contribute to a successful cloud adoption, as well as some valuable tips on sustaining momentum over the long-term.

  • What’s stopping your IT teams from becoming enablers of business improvements Recorded: Jun 7 2019 45 mins
    Nick Peter, Editorial Director, The Manufacturer, and, Dave Hills, Client Director
    Intensifying global competition, ever-more demanding customers and the digitalisation of manufacturing demand that businesses develop an increasingly agile and responsive organisational culture. However, this is almost impossible to achieve while shackled to ageing facilities, hardware and software – a situation many manufacturers find themselves in today. 

    If an IT team’s core focus is on resolving technical debt through constant upgrades and patches, then they aren’t driving positive change through innovation and forward-thinking strategies.
    In the past, that may not have been a business-critical issue, but in today’s ultra-competitive landscape - it could mean the difference between surviving and thriving.

    In this webinar, The Manufacturer’s Editorial Director Nick Peters, and Rackspace’s Client Director Dave Hills discuss:

    1. The key barriers stopping IT teams from innovating

    2. How to adopt an adaptive, digitally-driven culture that is more agile and open to embracing change

    3. How to foster a positive mindset and environment where it’s okay to fail and try new things

    4. The additional value and new revenue streams IT can bring to an organisation
