Are Manufacturing Companies Ready to Go Digital?

Understanding the Impact of Digital

Manufacturing companies have traditionally been slow to react to the advent of digital technologies and their related impact across the manufacturing value chain and operating model. While there are a few manufacturing companies that have made rapid advances in deriving significant benefits from digital, their number is still small.

For instance, in a recent industry survey, only 25% of the interviewed executives believed that the manufacturing sector would be highly impacted by digital transformation over the next five years. Our study found that digital innovation is critical when it comes to addressing manufacturers’ key business drivers and creating value.
