Overview

Run a manufacturing business that is innovative, agile and secure using Microsoft’s complete cloud and analytics platform

Enable manufacturing employees to get more done and achieve greater job satisfaction. Workers at every level share the frustration of being slowed or stalled by outmoded technology. Giving employees efficient technologies can free them to get more done—and to be more innovative. Many employees have deskless roles (e.g., quality inspectors, machine operators, etc.) and need to stay productive and connected while on the move. Workers can use familiar apps and securely access documents and emails from anywhere. They can also meet online across locations via video conferencing and instant messaging. (Office 365, Windows 10 Pro devices)

Become more customer-centric. Deliver added value to customers and take advantage of new sources of revenue by developing and implementing new customer-centric business models, including e-commerce channels and services, using intelligent cloud solutions. The Microsoft Cloud provides manufacturers with a flexible, scalable and secure platform to deliver high performing, high availability web services, portals, apps and social media connections. In addition, ISV partners build on Microsoft technologies to provide specific solutions that support customer engagement services. (Office 365, Dynamics 365, Microsoft Azure)

Digital transformation represents the opportunity for businesses to think and operate like digital companies-- in the ways they engage their customers, empower their employees, optimize their operations and transform their products.
