The manufacturer’s challenge

Faced with continued disruption to global supply chains, heightened demand pressure, and threats from new entrants - business as usual is not an option. Every ambitious manufacturing organization needs to reassess its operating and business model and embed resilience and agility. Most manufacturers have begun this journey, but few are fully digitized. Each faces differing budget priorities, the complexities of fragmented deployments, and difficulties executing initial digitalization plans.

Four future manufacturing imperatives

  • Digital transformation. The future of manufacturing will be technology-enabled and Industry 4.0 provides the framework. Cloud, edge computing, digital twin, IoT, and AI/ML will fuel process reinvention, operational efficiency, and state-of-the art innovation.
  • Business Resilience. In the wake of disruption, manufacturers must mitigate risk through improved visibility and predictability, strengthened supply chain risk management, and predictive maintenance that eliminates unplanned downtime.
  • Security. Surging threats during the pandemic coupled with insider threats, have added to the sense of business risk. For manufacturers, cybersecurity – inside and outside the organization – is increasingly vital.
  • Recruitment. New workforce entrants want to use the latest and greatest tech. To overcome the challenge of talent scarcity, making the workplace attractive means making it modern. Cloud-native operators should have access to a full stack of enterprise-ready open-source tools. Developers want to work with the best technologies.
