Almost one third of Irish companies have no digital strategy, according to a recent report entitled ‘Digitalisation: Unlocking the Potential’ launched by Siemens.
Key findings within the report showed that when it comes to implementing technologies, over half are still in the initial/planning phase.
It also showed that while 43% have defined digital strategies for portions of their business, less than one third has such a strategy for the company as a whole.
"It’s essential that Irish companies position themselves to take advantage of the benefits of Digitalisation. If we are not doing it in Ireland, somebody somewhere is, which is a threat to the sustainability of Irish business.” Gary O’Callaghan, CEO, Siemens Ireland said.
The new report explores the current level of digital adoption among Irish companies across all sectors with a focus on Ireland’s food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and electrical and electronics industries.
Key Drivers And Barriers
Almost half (46%) of respondents say they are familiar with Digitalisation but close to one third (29%) don’t know much about it.
It also showed, that 40% are confident their company has the skills required to evaluate emerging technology.
