What’s driving digital transformation in manufacturing?

Even before the global pandemic, manufacturing CIOs invested heavily in enhanced connectivity, blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and big data to drive growth. Since COVID-19, they have been transforming their IT operations with advanced analytics, next-gen automation, and additive manufacturing (e.g., 3D printing) to overcome acute supply chain restrictions, steep drops in demand, and worker unavailability.

Industry Challenges

  • Massive investments in legacy infrastructure are difficult to update and don't attract talent in a competitive recruitment market.
  • Tech leaders need to drive rapid digital transformation with Kubernetes to remain competitive but worry about the lack of agility and lock-in offered by legacy solutions.
  • DevOps teams want to run high-performance data processing workloads on-premises and at the edge but don't want to abandon any of their cloud-native capabilities.
