Frequently asked questions

What worked yesterday to attract, engage and retain business may be fast becoming obsolete. That’s why companies must create a cutting-edge experience and align the organization, processes and technology to power it – through digital transformation. This means using digital or data-driven solutions to increase an organization’s productivity. It is the reinvention of organizations through advanced digital technologies. In other words, digital transformation is Industry X.

If companies don’t embrace the digital technology of tomorrow, they will watch their competitors do so. Digital technology drives new levels of efficiencies, customer experiences and sustainability. Embedding Internet of Tomorrow connectivity, cloud computing, analytics and machine learning can boost a manufacturer’s overall productivity, quality, flexibility and safety for the entire enterprise.

Successful manufacturers will capture the value of the new and emerging digital transformation solutions and focus efforts on building a business with the capabilities to deliver just the right product or service, at just the right time, and to a customer base of millions. Speed is becoming a necessary requirement across all industries. Using new digital tools to source and gather real-time data, companies are embedding the “fast” ethos in all parts of the business. A cultural shift has made sustainability mainstream and personal. People want to reduce their environmental impact, and they’re thinking much more critically about how their products are used and packaged. Today's consumers expect manufacturers to know them inside out—and use that knowledge to deliver products, services and experiences that are entirely relevant when it really matters.

Accenture has developed a comprehensive model to help companies implement a digital transformation strategy. It starts with working backwards from intended outcomes to identify industry-specific solutions for specific functions, processes and systems for growth. Accenture’s combination of industry expertise, departmental expertise, manufacturing, supply chain, sales and technology helps guide partners through their digital transformation journey. Get started today with digital transformation solutions that will create responsibility, relevance and resiliency.
