The most recent McKinsey Global Survey on digital transformation notes that more than eight in ten respondents say their organizations have undertaken such efforts in the past five years.[1] The real question on everyone’s mind now is how will this technology improve organisation performance and impact the manufacturing industry in the upcoming year?
