Digital transformation in practice

I’ve blogged about i4.0 and IoT, but what does this mean in practice for manufacturers?  One recent survey by Zebra Technologies has identified what specific technologies firms are planning to invest in, in order to digitally transform their business.  They are:

  • mobile technologies
  • voice direction & recognition
  • location-tracking in real time
  • wearables.

The barriers to adopting these technologies are the complexity of the technology, budget constraints, and integration with legacy systems.
