Data without Silos
Manufacturers require timely data and accurate solutions to synchronise orders, suppliers, inventories and shipments across ever larger, worldwide, corporate footprints. And yet manufacturing environments are awash with systems and processes typically operating on a diverse range of platforms and with varying levels of interoperability and integration.
Whilst some manufacturers have been able to digitise systems and create automated workflow processes, many businesses continue to use systems built on older (sometimes incompatible) technology. These systems remain in place for one of three reasons:
- They are solid, robust manufacturing systems
- There is no contemporary alternative, or the newer versions are still being developed
- The cost of upgrade is prohibitive

Hurdles to True Process Automation
Old technology, whilst still valuable and serving a purpose, remains the biggest hurdle to true business process automation, both within the enterprise and across the manufacturing sector as a whole.
These legacy systems can prevent the efficient movement of data into, through and out of the business. To remain competitive and successfully achieve digital transformation, manufacturers need to find the means to connect such systems within the organisation.
