Gain more value with digital

Combining digital technologies that drive operational efficiencies with others that enable new growth is the key idea of Accenture’s Industry X.0 approach. Companies which follow that approach strive to master this kind of technology combination and balance their digital mix to achieve efficiency and maximize investment value.

These Industry X.0 companies can quickly determine which technologies are optimal for their business. And they excel in adopting these in an effective way that allows them to drive company-wide change.

Tomorrow’s Industry X.0 companies will rely on not only business cases but also analysis of external factors, or value-triggers, to shape their digital transformation roadmap.

A careful analysis—and management—of these factors can help companies make better technology choices, mitigate adoption risks and maximize the return on digital investments.
