Dispelling Common Myths Around Industrial Digital Transformation

Although the concept of digital transformation has been around for years, it remains misunderstood.­
What are these myths?­
  • It’s too expensive because I’ll need new technology.
  • It’s going to replace all my workers.
  • It will increase my cyber security risk.
  • I can’t digitally transform my older brownfield site.
And yet, these myths don’t square with the experiences of leading industrial companies.
