Digital Transformation Council

The Digital Transformation Council (DTC) is the place to Connect, Collaborate, Learn, and Share with peers who are digitizing and transforming their organizations.  DTC is an end user only community, technology suppliers are not allowed to participate.

Need for digital transformation for industrial organizations and cities will continue to accelerate and evolve for some time.  Every organization and municipality will need to innovate, change, and adapt.

So, where to begin? How can you determine which technologies and techniques to consider, which to prioritize, and which to reject?  The answer will certainly be different for each organization, but a good starting point is to understand the critical dimensions of the problem, because this can serve as the basis for planning.  Council members can benefit from access to community of peers. 

    Digital Transformation Council Mission

    The Digital Transformation Council seeks to enable industry, energy, and public sector professionals driving or impacted by digital transformation to keep abreast of the many emerging technologies and business trends, to learn from others on similar journeys, and to leverage these trends and technologies to achieve transformational growth.Digital Transformation for Manufacturing Industries, Infrastructure & Cities

    Council members benefit from access to community of peers.  They can tap the latest thinking from thought leaders, download research documents from the Council Library, participate in quarterly web meetings and other events, interact with ARC analysts, and request facilitated meetings with suppliers or other community members

    • The Council consists of members drawn from executives, vice presidents, and managers at end user organizations, together with representatives from ARC.
    • ARC conducts research, organizes meetings, provides venues, manages, and otherwise supports the Council.
    • Council members are expected to share information and regularly participate in a number of surveys, and will receive priority access to survey results.
    • The general direction and focus areas of the Council is set by a steering committee, consisting of a number of active members and named ARC representatives.
    • The Steering committee will meet regularly as needed, usually via web meeting

    The Digital Transformation Council provides me with an invaluable opportunity to connect and exchange with like-minded industry peers and ARC experts, enabling me to freely discuss the emerging technologies and business trends key to achieving transformational growth.  This global network not only helps me to keep track of the rapid development of digital trends, but also provides inspiration to successfully drive our own digital transformation journey in manufacturing.

    Council Membership Rules

    1. The Digital Transformation Council is a community for professional networking and collaboration. It exists to encourage the open exchange of ideas. Engagement drives the value of the council for both the community and individual members, so regular participation by members is encouraged.
    2. Council members are expected to conduct themselves in a professional, respectful manner in all Council interactions.
    3. Members may download ARC content for their own use and convenience, but may not share or distribute these materials without prior approval from ARC.
    4. Council members are expected to share information and regularly participate by completing surveys. These surveys typically take less than 10 minutes to complete, and fall into two principal categories:
      • Topical surveys designed to gather information to be used in support of ARC research. Members are expected to complete a minimum of 4 of these surveys per year. Published results will contain only aggregate data, with no identifying information about the member or the member’s organization.
      • User preference surveys designed to better understand the interests of Council members. Ideally, each member will complete each of these surveys in a timely manner.
    5. ARC reserves the right to remove any member who does not comply with the above.
