IDC InfoBrief: Helping SMBs achieve digital transformation

By Anthony Johnson

Digital transformation is hailed as the new trend in product development and manufacturing, especially among industry leaders, so small- to mid-sized firms often feel left behind. Smaller companies often lack the tools or resources to successfully accelerate their own digital transformation at scale, so too often it takes a backseat amid other priorities.

To address this gap, Siemens PLM Software has produced the IDC InfoBrief, an analyst report that demonstrates how smaller firms can reap the benefits of digital transformation, without exposing themselves to too much risk. The report also shows how to determine if your digital transformation efforts are ahead of the curve, or lagging.

    • False assumptions many SMBs make about digital transformation
    • Approaches for implementing digital transformation when resources are tight
    • Key areas where digital transformation can support business priorities
