Transformative Technologies Driving Digital Transformation in Asia Pacific’s Industrial Sector
Many organizations in APAC are currently undergoing digital transformation. They require robust IT infrastructure to support workloads across different platforms. This year, Forrester predicts a 30% increase in industrial digital platform adoption. These are led by manufacturing, construction, utilities, and other industrial organizations.
To counter labor shortages, 35% of businesses in Asia Pacific plan to integrate physical robotics with their technology infrastructure. These businesses aim to use autonomous mobile robots and drones. Also to support their operations and service delivery, optimizing operational efficiencies, improving time-to-market, and providing better customer value.
Currently organizations rely on edge computing to monitor and predict equipment failures by analyzing data over the cloud. This, in turn, facilitates real-time decision-making. For example, manufacturers can use data sensors installed on-site to monitor the ensure critical systems are running smoothly, and mitigate safety risks.
As workloads become decentralized and not confined to data centers or originating from them, the rise of hybrid work practices and edge technologies is becoming increasingly prevalent. Information can be created on personal devices, as well as IoT devices, including consumer and industrial machines, which are interconnected to facilitate automation.
Andrew Underwood, field CTO at Dell Technologies in APAC emphasizes the exponential growth of data volumes worldwide, including in APAC, with increasingly varied data sources. A robust IT infrastructure is necessary to handle these volumes. To avoid delays in critical alerts and system failures, and prevent damage to customer confidence, which can impact service delivery.
