2020 has shown manufacturing is resilient and has rapidly adapted to the new environment. Manufacturers have been largely focused on ‘Process Transformation’, the critical first step in a digital journey that enables ‘Business Model Transformation', which is a clear priority for many manufacturers in 2021.
See the report to find out what technologies are highest priority to enable this transformation, what the main drivers for investment are, and how priorities have changed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
This report is based on a survey of senior manufacturing professionals conducted in November and December
2020 by The Manufacturer, the premier industry publication providing insights, events and research, and
commissioned by IBM.
This Digital Transformation Assessment sought to understand the current business
imperatives, how the Coronavirus pandemic has affected priorities, and the strategic role adopting digital
