Recent technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, the cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, mobility, and robotics have the potential to connect billions of transactions to and from disparate systems, to smart machines, and to unimaginable amounts of data.

To remain competitive, manufacturers must deliver high quality, innovative products and get them to market faster. By making better use of data, manufacturers can better predict customer demand, quickly adjust to changes in the marketplace, accelerate the engineer-to-order process, and communicate more efficiently within an optimized value chain.
