Data Driven Media

It’s becoming a digital world. Gardner Intelligence is a source for specific data that is related to your business. It’s a company we formed and staffed to channel the enormous amount of available data into a stream that is manageable and populated with information that has been targeted to our reader’s needs.

There is a sea change enveloping the manufacturing industry in general and metalworking specifically. It goes by several names; Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and data-driven manufacturing. Each of these monikers informs us of the increasingly important role that data, its acquisition and analysis, plays in the future of our field.

As a trade publication, we bring you ways and that can help your business participate in this digital revolution to help you compete, economize and increase efficiency within the world (your shop) under your control. But data is everywhere and having a pipeline to what’s going on outside your shop can be a huge advantage. Is the outlook for your customers in manufacturing up or down, which industries are projecting growth and which are looking at a downturn?  

Gardner Intelligence is a source for this kind of information and more. It’s a company we formed and staffed to channel the enormous amount of available data into a stream that is manageable and populated with information that has been targeted to our reader’s needs.

Our parent company, Gardner Business Media, is in a unique position to separate data that is relevant from data that is not and present it to you in a form that is germane to your business. We’ve participated in manufacturing since 1928 and, in the market segments we serve, our brands are highly respected. It’s that experience we bring to bear on the information available from Gardner Intelligence.

In our December issue of PM, there is an article with a forecast for manufacturing in 2018 that was produced by Gardner Intelligence and is targeted to our segment of manufacturing. Check out “Manufacturing Outlook Sees Growth and Transformation.”
