Embracing agility now

Technology and IT within manufacturing organisations has for many years been a necessary but operational burden, with the PwC Annual Manufacturing report identifying that 87% of businesses recognised they needed to adopt digital technologies in order to prosper.

 

 
The rapid advancement in IT technology is no longer measured in years or months but within weeks, days, even hours and Chief Technology Officers are increasingly submitting quarterly IT budgets that enables contingency funds, should the unknown happen. Unless your business is agile enough for a high level of change, how can you expect to be prepared for the next inevitable disruption?

Preparing for this level of technological change within manufacturing has never been more apparent than in the last six months. The Covid-19 pandemic undoubtedly forever changed the way that we all operate, function, and communicate with one another.

 

 
Timico has utilised its expertise to support several global manufacturers with such contingency plans, helping to keep them connected, productive and secure. What is interesting is that despite specialising in different vertical markets and working at varying stages of their IT transformation, each of these manufacturers are facing the same challenges day to day, from the retention of skills to the increased need for cyber security applications.

Our latest whitepaper explores some of the key challenges that the manufacturing industry is facing today as it migrates the outcomes of Covid-19 and rapid technological advancements. No business can prepare for the future, but it can prepare for these changes now, by embracing absolute agility.
