Facing the Systems Integrator Dilemma
Industry is bounding back from the pandemic, looking for automation and smart solutions to counter their labor shortage and protect themselves from the next market disruption. It’s an amazing opportunity for us. Yet, we find ourselves with our own labor challenges, unable to fully utilize our resources and maximize the value of the incredible talent pool we steward. Highly disruptive market forces are changing project and support practices, not to mention employment models. Can we seize opportunity from valuable yet scarce or underutilized resources as other industries have with environments like Fiverr, Uber, Xometry, and AirBnB?
In this session, Ryan Cahalane, President of FZ Industrial Tech, will talk about his efforts to meet these challenges, looking at his people, his competitors, and the services landscape differently. He’ll outline a bold initiative he’s championing in partnership with ATS Global and tech startup, Bennit, to bring lessons and new models from the Gig Economy into the manufacturing and Systems Integration space. They’ll talk through the many complexities of SI businesses and opportunities to address them through a systematic, shared-resource model which could transform how we impact industry.
