Manufacturing

Enabling digitalization beyond organizational boundaries

Economic uncertainty, globalization, volatile demand, increased customer expectations and greater government oversight are creating new and intense pressures for today's manufacturers. To compete and win, leading manufacturers are focused on reducing costs, improving operational agility and innovation, launching new services, and decreasing time to market. In addition, for the first time, social media and digital customer engagement are top of mind.
