Companies are using new disruptive technology platforms as an opportunity for transformation in order to position themselves for the future in multidimensional competition. What are the main trends influencing the speed of transformation?
For many companies, transformation opportunities with rapid efficiency gains lie mainly in the area of automation. The drivers for the speed of implementation are, on the one hand, demographic change flanked by a lack of skilled workers, who are an important resource. Furthermore, customer requirements and products are becoming more individualized, which has an impact on production and logistics processes. The need for modular
"fluid" processes is growing. The latter is also relevant, for example, when companies want to quickly gain a foothold in new sales markets and set up a quickly scalable ecosystem with a suitable production and logistics infrastructure.
