Becoming a Manufacturing Leader Means Progressing Your Digitization Journey

You know that manufacturing leaders have found a way to optimize decision making, enhance resiliency, and achieve better predictability, but how do they do it? The answer is digitization.

It’s no coincidence that top manufacturers seeing the biggest benefits in the industry are more likely to rely on data-driven operations. An IDC survey reveals that digital leaders experience a 45% increase in profits, a number three times that of digital laggards. The fact remains that in order to beat today’s challenges like supply chain disruptions, workforce shortages, and geopolitical restrictions, organizations must improve their digital maturity.

In this IDC Analyst Brief, you’ll discover:

  • The five stages of IDC’s data-drive operations maturity framework
  • Specific benefits of becoming a digital leader
  • Considerations of common pitfalls that could hold you back
  • Statistics that illustrate the urgency associated with digitization
