CNI launches an observatory with the integration of industrial data – News

The National Confederation of Industry (CNI) opened this Thursday (20th) the Industrial Observatory, which gathers 209 databases with information on the economy, labor market, education, environment, logistics and health. With this, the agency is betting that it will be possible to predict future scenarios for managing the strategic planning of companies in the country.

“We are building the biggest big data [base de dados] on topics of interest to the industrial ecosystem. We have the opportunity to analyze future scenarios and make this knowledge reach the industry and society,” said Márcio Guerra, CEO of CNI.

According to the confederation, the information base will enable analysis and creation of studies that can help expand the industrial sector. In 2021, industry accounted for 22.1% of gross domestic product (GDP). “The observatory appears with this role to be a hub (central axis) for the federations, with the formation of a network of future information on the industry,” said the director general of the Social Service for Industry (Sesi), Rafael Lucchesi.

Basically, a database will serve as a hub for other databases. A total of six states have operational observatories: Ceará, Paraná, Santa Catarina, Goiás, Mato Grosso and Rio Grande do Norte. Another 11 are in the process of implementation.

In addition, a cooperative database is in the works that will integrate 160 databases on topics of interest to industry, such as vocational training, education and technology.

“We are facing technological and organizational changes. We will have the opportunity, from accessing the database, to be strategic in decision-making,” concludes Guerra.

Study of logistics

One of the first studies presented by the observatory team mapped five trends that will affect the logistics sector in the coming years and shows how digital transformation will affect companies and jobs in the logistics sector.

“Based on the analysis and interpretation of a large amount of data and consultation with experts, we identify the existing technologies on the market in this area, with a greater chance of expansion in the coming years, and their impacts on the labor market,” explained the president of CNI, Robson Braga de Andrade .

professional profiles

The expectations of the logistics sector are that three occupations will have to change their professional profiles: logistics technician and production controller and programmer, for example, must have knowledge, albeit basic, of programming language and algorithm. The port logistics operator will also have to adapt to new technologies, especially those related to port automation.

In addition, there are at least five professional profiles for which companies are in high demand: logistics manager, supply chain manager (supply chain), machinery and equipment maintenance technician, port logistics operator and logistics technician.

“There is a lack of specialists with knowledge of foreign trade, languages, international logistics and e-commerce. The activity is developing from inventory, supply and materials management to supply chain management, and for work in all logistics functions, generalist specialists are most preferred”, explains Marcello Pio, forecaster at the National Industry Observatory.

The observatory is an initiative of CNI, Sessions, the National Service for Industrial Learning (Senai) and the Euvaldo Lodi Institute (IEL).
