THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION in workforce productivity is underway.
A confluence of transformational technologies like Machine Learning (ML), Virtual Reality (VR), the Internet of Things (IoT), and 3D and 4D printing herald a new era of computational working. For companies operating in Product Development, Architecture, Engineering and Construction and Media and Entertainment this spells huge opportunity for connected, exponential efficacy in design and engineering workflows.
A symbiotic relationship where the power of machine processes is partnered with uniquely human traits such as empathy and reasoning offers limitless design potential. Coupled with real-time performance data from IoT, VR and 3D/4D printing technologies, businesses can introduce truly connected processes that will produce better decisions in less time.
As this report demonstrates, leading companies are already well progressed down the path of computational productivity. But for the majority that are not, now is the window of opportunity.
Every revolution has its winners and losers. It is up to IT decision makers to act to ensure their businesses emerge as leaders riding the wave of transformation.
