Creating the Intelligent Enterprise for Manufacturers
Discrete Manufacturing is an important part of the UK economy, representing over 44% of UK exports with further growth expected. It was reported by The Manufacturer last year that growth is expected to continue at a positive rate, which is very encouraging. However, despite the positive growth in the market, the pace of digital adoption of next-gen technologies lags behind other advanced economies. The UK ranks 22nd in the world for adoption of advanced digital technologies (ADTs) such as IoT, Robotics and AI. This, combined with the industry challenges that pre-date ADTs has resulted in a need to create the intelligent enterprise.
