Infor has written an excellent blog regarding the future of digitalization in the manufacturing industry. From building the right strategy at the beginning to keeping your team informed and on task, digitalizing your manufacturing organization is an intricate task that requires careful consideration.

Every step in your manufacturing process will eventually be digitalized – the key is to ensure your entire organization is ready for the transition.
