Suitable products in the right place thanks to powerful system architecture

In addition to technological leadership, successful digital transformation is becoming increasingly important for the economic success of industrial companies. This includes the digitization and optimization of the entire production and value chain from sourcing to pinpoint delivery, as well as digital products and business models that focus on the customer and his expectations and thus offer him tangible added value.


Such a change cannot be implemented overnight because it requires a digital strategy that is anchored throughout the company. In the course of implementation, not only must the IT infrastructure, data architecture, IT security and processes be aligned with the new requirements, but cooperation within the company and with customers must also be reshaped and tared. As many international companies are already setting standards in digitization, it is crucial to start now.

The advancing digitalization from logistics to the customer experience demands a mature system architecture.

The ongoing digital transformation in the industry (Industry 4.0) focuses not only on the further optimization of business and production processes but also on the development and use of new customer experiences and often even leads to the development of new business models. Smart and target-oriented information technology leads to competitive advantages and increased efficiency, which enable Swiss industrial companies to position themselves successfully in international markets.


The digital technologies available today and their use also enable industrial companies to transform their production into a "Smart Factory" and benefit from many advantages at the same time: Integrated networking optimizes collaboration with suppliers and customers. This leads to more efficient supply chain management and simplifies planning processes. Seamless tracking of the flow of goods, resources and quality increases transparency and leads to improved logistics processes. The use of artificial intelligence helps to identify divergences at an early stage and to react quickly to them. In this way, Smart Manufacturing not only opens up cost-effective processes through improved resource management, but also leads to quality improvements and increased sustainability through high-grade automation.
