Over the past few years, digital transformation has become essential for industries, it is about the search for innovation based on the use of technology in processes and operations.

Dozens of technologies have been used in the midst of industrial processes since then. Between them:



They made it possible for industries to obtain new tools capable of generating more and more optimization and value to their production chain.

The trend is that in the coming years these technologies will cease to be a differential and become essential requirements for industries that want to maintain their competitive position in the midst of an expanding market and technological adhesion.


How to be prepared in this search for digital transformation?


There is a great trend regarding the application of Digital twins and IoT (Internet of Things) sensors to operations, however, due to the complexity and variables that surround them, this process is done gradually.

We can conclude that in some years the market will be characterized by great growth in this process of transition to digital. In a report made by Mordor Intelligence, the market value added by the digital transformation in 2020 was estimated at 998.99 billion dollars, with an expectation of reaching 2,744.68 billion in 2026.
