To thrive through rapid and recurring change companies must become more nimble, proactive and aligned in how they discover, create, make and sell new products.

Resilience and proactivity can only be achieved through digital transformation that empowers every level in the organization to make sound, data-driven decisions fast, resulting in a truly connected enterprise.

Evolving towards a connected enterprise means organizations must prioritize building a strong operating model and technical foundation that unites and integrates information technology (IT) and operating technology (OT) across the digital thread.


Top-line growth

  • Up to 30% increase in factory output
  • Up to 33% decrease in time to market

Operational excellence

  • Up to 12% reduction in operation costs
  • Up to 50% increase in OEE
  • Up to 90% improvement in right-first time quality
  • Up to 50% reduction in unplanned downtime

We help organizations transition from creating incremental benefit to driving transformational change with their digital thread initiatives

Digital transformation often starts when an industry must react to new forces and disruptors impacting the marketplace. Successfully adapting to change through transformation can be the difference between companies that thrive and those that don’t.

The journey can be counterproductive if embarked upon incorrectly. Lack of a comprehensive vision can result in the loss of executive support if early initiatives fail. Starting with siloed implementation, instead of a unified approach, results in a fragmented digital thread that does not meet the needs of the organization as a whole.

We create alignment and collective understanding to help maximize the path to value and overcome common pitfalls that slow change and realization of business results.

Businesses move twice as fast on their digital transformation journey once the staff and management collectively understand the importance of their digital path ahead.
