Status of digital readiness for Industrial Transformation programs globally

A white paper sponsored by Hitachi Vantara 

Whatever your company calls it – Digital or Industrial Transformation, Industrie 4.0 or Smart Manufacturing, the questions remain.

  • What are the “big” things industrial companies are trying to accomplish?
  • How are they going about it (strategically and tactically)?
  • What are the key indicators of digital readiness?
  • And what, if anything, is delivering significant improvement?

To answer these questions, LNS Research conducted a global survey in December 2018. The study reveals that two-thirds of companies have implemented, are currently implementing, or plan to implement an IIoT program.
