Challenges in Discrete Manufacturing

Manufacturers in the discrete industry are challenged with addressing the ever increasing needs of connected, empowered consumers. Manufacturers now need to engage more deeply with customers and consumers to drive innovation based on their needs and find new ways to add value. Traditional manufacturing organisations, with a heavy focus on operational efficiency, must now redirect their focus to keep pace with customer needs by creating new revenue streams through product-based services. The distributed and hazardous nature of the manufacturing industry’s facilities, devices, products and systems creates unique vulnerabilities. As a result, cyberattacks on manufacturers have been increasing in number and severity in recent years. To remain competitive, manufacturers need to continue to innovate with cutting-edge technologies, but they also need to ensure they are protecting their valuable IP.

Microsoft can help address these challenges and accelerate your Digital Transformation journey.

Microsoft‘s approach

Become a digital business – drive digital transformation in your organisation

“Every company is a software company. You have to start thinking and operating like a digital company. It’s no longer just about procuring one solution and deploying one. It’s not about one simple software solution. It’s really you yourself thinking of your own future as a digital company.”

– Satya Nadella CEO, Microsoft
