    Aging Workforce and Knowledge Capture

    An aging workforce is impacting a number of industries. Retirement of experienced workers is expected to create a skills gap. While younger generations of workers will bring new skills, it is crucial that the knowledge and experience accumulated by more senior workers is captured and made accessible to the new workforce. Inability to institutionalize this knowledge can be detrimental to the apprenticeship of younger employees. Preparing for this impending change by using digital technologies can ease the transition.

Digitizing operations has become an imperative for the modern industrial corporation.  Technological progress in computing, sensing, storage and communications technologies has made it easier, faster and cheaper for organizations to accelerate adoption of Big Data and asset management technologies. 

However, with the growing volume of data from assets and operations, there are significant challenges that asset-centric companies need to overcome to reap the benefits of digitization. In this slideshow, Shefali Patel, director of strategy and marketing, GE Digital, discusses the challenges inherent in working with large volumes of data and how to successfully leverage enterprise data.
