Digital challenges

Do you also know these 6 digitization brake blocks?

  • Technological challenges
    Digitization in the manufacturing industry is slowed down primarily by difficulties in integrating technologies and overcoming compatibility problems.
  • High cost
    Investments for the introduction of technologies and the implementation of digitization projects lead to significantly increasing IT costs.
  • Lack of expertise
    To use digital technologies effectively, there is a lack of technical expertise and skilled workers.
  • Hurdle data security
    Concerns about the security of sensitive data and the preservation of data integrity are also slowing down digital progress.
  • Internal culture change
    Overcoming resistance to change and adapting to new workflows can also lead to difficulties in the important digitization of manufacturing processes.
  • Regulatory challenges
    Last but not least, overcoming legal and regulatory obstacles also complicates the implementation of digitization projects.
