    • What "Moving up the Value Pyramid" looks like in practice, including specific examples and successes.
    How standards play a more critical role in our customers’ essential processes and strategic initiatives than you may have ever imagined, including:
    • How Digital Transformation is changing the way the world Interacts with information and how it will dictate the future of engineering.
    • The rich problems that customers are identifying in this emerging new world, and the “art of the possible” when solutions are envisioned combining Artificial Intelligence with Industry Standards.
    • Customer research that is directing our Engineering Workbench product development, and how this is specifically designed to help our customers’ critical processes and strategic initiatives.
    • How we are transforming our marketing, customer care, and sales organizations to align with our customers’ challenges and initiatives.
    • How we are leveraging Artificial Intelligence in operations, product development, and even sales and marketing.
    • New business models and IHS Markit’s heavy continued investment in research and technology to continue moving up the value pyramid.
    This will be a highly interactive session with plenty of opportunity and time for audience Q&A.
