Digital transformation – driving operational improvements in your physical value stream using connected data from your digital value stream – is delivering unprecedented value across industries to those with a clear roadmap. In fact, a recent Harvard Business School report shows that companies that embrace digital transformation attain significantly better gross margins, earnings and net income than those that don’t. What’s more, those digital leaders are not spending much more on IT than laggards because the big investments have already been made. The challenge is knowing how to connect the data from the digital value stream to drive continuous improvement with real-time metrics and predictive analytics. No matter where you are on the journey of digital transformation – these six steps can help you connect your systems to drive new levels of productivity, profitability and value across your business.
