Virtual event to showcase digital transformation solutions for the embattled energy and chemical industries

Y NOW 2020Companies in the energy and chemical industries are under pressure to remain relevant. Shifting perceptions of customers and society, coupled with weak end-user demand in many sectors requires asset owners and operators to think differently. Companies must adjust their portfolios and operating models by digitalizing deeper and faster to improve the economics of marginal assets.

Many questions are being asked of digitalization transformation (DX) leaders and their initiatives. Why now? What’s the value? How will it move the needle? Is there a roadmap? What should I do today? How do I maximize the resources available? How can I deploy in an agile way? Etc. There aren’t easy answers.

Y Now 2020 is a live, online, digital transformation (DX) focused symposium that will bring together some of the industry’s finest minds to share what they envision for the future and what’s worked for them to date. Over November 10-12, 2020, participants will come to better understand the value that digitalization at scale offers and, more importantly, how to capture it in an agile and sustainable manner. They will be able to align stakeholders, deploy an outcome-based digital transformation, and keep the journey on track in a sustainable manner for a better future.

Four key interest areas

The symposium will comprise a variety of keynote addresses, industry panel discussions, and end-user presentations providing actionable insights to capture the benefits that are not only possible but that progressive companies are already realizing. The event will specifically focus on the four key interest areas of Production and Energy Management, Asset Management, Supply Chain Management, and Cybersecurity.

  • Asset Management: See how traditional asset management has been transformed with sustainable, predictive, and optimized technologies that increase availability and reliability while decreasing operations and maintenance lifecycle costs.


  • Supply Chain: Production excellence is heavily dependent on robust supply chains; assets and their supply chains share a symbiotic co-existence. Changes to one affect the other. Understand and solve for the critical dependencies in planning, scheduling, and production accounting through application-oriented sessions and use cases.


  • Production & Energy: This track will focus on digital transformation technologies such as digital twins to manage and optimize all aspects of production operations and energy management. Learn from use cases how successful deployment has yielded immediate and sustained, bottom-line benefits.


  • Cybersecurity: Learn about the very latest in control system/OT and IT security including industry standards, secure IIoT and cloud, how to defend against the latest threats, and benefits from new project use cases.


The energy and chemical industries must digitally transform to be operationally excellent. Excellence must translate into a measurable change in profitability; Y Now 2020 will showcase how to achieve this.
