As manufacturers turn to digital to increase efficiencies, safety or productivity, they not only accelerate this value chain, they also create a whole new level of personalization from the power plant to the customer by harnessing the power of data.

How about its software and apps – how often do you upgrade them? I know. All the time! The pace at which we do this is unbelievable, and that’s because it’s all so simple, fast and intuitive. Press a button and it’s done. Unfortunately, the same doesn’t happen in the enterprise space and complexity has often been blamed for it. The fact of the matter is that upgrading IT infrastructure in enterprise is still hard and slow to do, leaving many companies discouraged to make the necessary changes to keep pace with the demands of a digital world. Can we blame them? No, we can’t. But we can make enterprise technology more intelligent and, as a result, much simpler to manage and consume – just like in the tech consumer market. 2018-04-04http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8805/ The SMB of the futurehttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8532Reducing cost, gaining operational efficiency and improving productivity are top concerns for small and medium sized businesses. 2018-03-05http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8532/ Going Digital: Make Security The Foundationhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8699Today companies are also born digital and “traditional” companies are investing in digital.
