Industry Solutions for Manufacturers

The manufacturing industry is experiencing a significant period of transformation. International expansion, changing consumer needs, and new forms of digital technologies, such as 3D printing, advanced robotics, drones and the Internet of Things, mean that manufacturers are restructuring direct materials supply chains and IT infrastructures to ensure new technologies and consumer-driven market conditions can be embraced with ease.

Manufacturers must develop flexible and highly-scalable IT infrastructures with a centralized hub of digital information to ensure that all internal and external participants in the manufacturing value chain, from design, manufacture, and marketing to support, have access to digital information at any time and everywhere.
