The Potential of Digitization

Accelerate Growth and Profits and Improve Operations with Digital Manufacturing

Today's major shifts in equipment and machinery manufacturing, composed broadly of three sub-segments: aerospace and defense, industrial and field, and construction, and commercial and home equipment, are all driven by the need to streamline operations and develop services that differentiate the customer experience. That lack of integration and visibility leads to a broad range of issues, including inefficient operations and slow response times, both in the factory and in the market, poor quality control, high overhead, and compromised security.

The good news is that the Internet of Things (IoT) is boosting innovation and efficiency in businesses of all kinds, but is, and will continue to be, significant in the manufacturing world. The evolution of smart, or digital, manufacturing is also transforming various processes across the value chain, from R&D and engineering to supply chain to production operations and distribution. Digital disruption is happening now across the different manufacturing verticals from automotive to consumer packaged goods to materials and mining to life sciences.

Cisco brings a unified, secure, end-to-end digital manufacturing portfolio of solutions whose foundation is a network architecture that enables and enhances automation, collaboration, video, cloud-to-fog agility and business intelligence. Along with this robust solution portfolio, only Cisco provides a holistic digital approach for manufacturing, with an extensive industry partner ecosystem, such as Rockwell Automation, consistently delivering customer-validated business and economic value. Manufacturers experience significant business outcomes, including:
