The ML Awards program has undergone significant enhancements including the addition of categories for manufacturers that are transforming their businesses through the use of emerging technologies, including big data and advanced analytics, mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT.)

In its eleventh year, the ML Awards is the premier program for honoring companies and individual leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. In addition, the awards also honor technology providers that have assisted ML Awards winners in achieving transformational breakthroughs. They also celebrate the outstanding career achievements of manufacturing leaders who build best-in-class companies and help advance the manufacturing industry.

Recipients of the ML Awards receive global recognition as manufacturing industry leaders and are honored at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 2-4, 2015, at the Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, CA. Past ML Awards company honorees include 3M, Boeing Co., Coca-Cola, Eaton Corporation, Ford Motor Co., General Electric Co., General Motors Co., IBM, L'Oreal USA, Motorola, Nalco, and Raytheon.

"The addition of new categories for projects that leverage big data, mobility, and IoT is recognition that manufacturers around the world are entering a new era of hyper-connectivity in which everything from products in the field to machines on the shop floor will be generating vast streams of data," said David Brousell, Global Vice President and Editorial Director of the Manufacturing Leadership Council. "Manufacturers that leverage that information to optimize their businesses and give customers what they want are tomorrow's leaders."

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
