Atos and The Manufacturer have launched a brand new series of “Industry Insight” videos, featuring exclusive insight from key players in the market.

In September 2015, Atos and The Manufacturer invited 20 senior-level decision makers to an exclusive Transforming Manufacturing, Embracing Digital event to discuss what digital transformation really means to UK manufacturing.

Following the successful event, and building on the key issues that were identified in the report, a series of Industry Insight short videos have been created, featuring key players from across UK industry discussing the themes of the report and the digital transformation challenges that are currently being seen in the real world.
