Image Reports talks to Peter Kiddel
Added by Sharon Mordey on January, 3, 2019
Well first off let me say this is an extremely interesting and important topic. And talking about it is all the more crucial when you consider the Widthwise survey figures and people’s understanding and potential use or adoption of i4.0 techniques and technologies - the numbers are disastrously low. But I really don’t think we can blame the print service providers [PSPs] for that, because I don’t think that - at this stage - they see the relevance.
Given that the print sector prides itself on using cutting edge digital technology, do you find it odd that it seems slower than many other industries in jumping into i4.0?
Yes, and as a member association it’s important that we flag up to them what we see as important developments - and i4.0 is certainly that. The more we talk to the real exponents of i4.0 the clearer it becomes that it is something that can’t be ignored.
So who is on your speaker panel for the conference, and why have you chosen them? Do you think they are best placed to tell PSPs how they should be futureproofing their businesses via i4.0?
And we’ll end with Tomas Novais, a technology transformation advisor at the MTC. So it will be interesting to see if they all share similar visions.
