THE 3RD IT PLATFORM CAN HELP
While maintaining an active recruitment cycle and offering in-depth training programs for new hires will always be a necessity (and a real challenge), technology affords you another opportunity for continued growth. The trend for “manufacturing companies of the future” is to create a work environment that is information-centric and collaborative by leveraging technology to store both the decades of invaluable tribal knowledge about your company’s products and processes, as well as current and future information. This serves to break down informational silos and simplify your hierarchical organization.
Based on cloud, mobility, social business, and Big Data analytics, this “3rd IT Platform” promises to create a real-time, collaborative, decision-making environment that will be pivotal to supporting manufacturers as they make a shift from transactional to real-time business. Using a system that incorporates this platform will allow companies to form communities of interest and focus; self-forming teams will be created by leveraging opportunities offered by the higher degree of real-time visibility and the collaborative working environment.
