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.
