Digital services as a competitive differentiator
Digitization is ensuring that value creation is shifting further and further away from traditional machine sales in the direction of additional digital services. These can serve for the necessary differentiation in competition and generate significant added value for end customers but also for the own organization.
End customers expect digitized product manufacturers
In the past decade, product manufacturers have equipped their products with intelligent functions and connectivity as part of “Industry 4.0”. But anyone who “only” takes the step toward digital interfaces runs the risk of becoming an interchangeable supplier in the end. Similar to smartphones, where Bluetooth is no longer a differentiating feature.
Customers are on their own digitization journey: They expect additional digital services from manufacturers! A machine manufacturer that does not consistently embark on the digitization journey risks losing a large proportion of its potential customers.
New business models and digital services
Corporate processes must adapt to these challenges. With a data-centric architecture to enable real-time information flow and eliminate inefficiencies. At the same time, data on the entire lifecycle and the totality of all operational products and assets are condensed into knowledge that enables individual added value. In other words, the path to the smart factory and digital services for customers. The transformation from product champion to data champion.
