Now more than ever manufactures are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives to adapt to the rapid and disruptive changes caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic. According to Forrester Research 91% of manufacturers surveyed stated that digital transformation is a top initiative for manufacturing operations and nearly 3 quarters of executive respondents expects significant business impacts in next 2 years. While the value potential is undeniable, many organizations find themselves constrained in a situation we refer to as scale purgatory – the inability to achieve impact at scale in an agile manner – often caused by the challenges of understanding the financial and transformational impact of technological infrastructures they can apply to bypass this obstacle. A recent Forrester Research study surveyed 300 global executives to evaluate both the reasons that lead companies to experience scale purgatory as well as some of the best practices they can apply to avoid this obstacle.
The executive webinar brings together three of the most recognized leaders in industrial digital transformation to share insights that can help manufacturers understand how they can design and pursue an enterprise industrial digital manufacturing program to unlock transformational impact with speed and at scale resulting in a true competitive advantage.
