Get IT right regardless of economic conditions
Abstract: While some cost-cutting measures may be essential in a weak economy, slashing information technology (IT) budgets and expenditures isn’t the way to stay afloat. Smart manufacturers are creating comprehensive IT strategies that allow transparency in all facets of operations and supply chains. IT can also control costs and improve revenue through quality control and compliance. Smart IT investments can improve processes, from the enterprise and engineering stages all the way to the plant floor and distribution centers. Taking these initiatives can help a manufacturing company stay successful regardless of the economic climate.
