Digital transformation will continue to be a priority in 2022, as manufacturers grapple with top challenges to meet growth expectations amid rising material costs, price reduction pressures, and increasing labour costs.


According to Boston Consulting Group (BCG)’s Digital Acceleration Index (DAI) study on global companies across 10 industries, the world’s most digitally mature companies outperformed their peers in the areas of revenue growth, enterprise value, and ROI in digital projects.

They have certainly established a connecting technology and human capabilities culture in which employees are integrating technology and data into their daily responsibilities and tasks, from manual work, automation, and optimisation.

The world’s most digitally mature companies are leveraging tech trends* to pursue new heights of rapid innovation, improved performance, and significant achievement.
