In the digital era, manufacturers are realizing that “data gaps” present in their supply chains can hurt the organization’s ability to stay competitive. Up until relatively recently, fragmented, inconsistent, or even inaccurate data was seen as a necessary evil due to the sheer complexity of manufacturing supply chains and the amount of data that needed to be collected. A patchwork of localized solutions and manual processes worked well enough to keep production going and that was really all that was important.
There’s a standard formula for calculating ROI: you subtract the amount of money you’ve gained from your investment from its cost, and then you divide that sum by the cost of the investment. It’s quite straightforward. However, ROI is also about the intangible benefits you reap from technology.

The term “servitization” has gained traction in recent years. It refers to selling an outcome as a service. A great example of this is Netflix: it sells media as a service, rather than selling the CDs or DVDs customers would have used to consume media.
Servitization isn’t just confined to companies operating in the digital space, such as Netflix. Manufacturing firms can also take advantage of servitization. Microsoft Dynamics 365 can help them achieve this goal – read on to learn more.
