Today's industry leaders consider digital thread initiatives a top priority. When stacked up against fifteen other technologic, strategic, and economic trends, participants of PTC's State of Digital Thread survey identified digital thread as the second most impactful, trailing only supply chain agility and ahead of typical headliners like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, the evolving workforce, and digital twins.

In this paper we share our findings.
