“Digital is everywhere in people’s lives. At one time computing was an activity done at work. Now it is just a daily activity for many. In the world of the product lifecycle, digital and its many variants—digitization, digitalization, digital transformation, digital twin, digital thread—are shorthand for topics, processes, and capabilities that the product lifecycle management (PLM) economy has championed since before “PLM” was coined some twenty years ago. Digitization, getting all intellectual assets in digital form, has been ongoing for decades..” (CIMdata 2019)
Kärcher, the leading worldwide provider of cleaning technologies, embraces the importance of digital transformation. Taking steps to transform its company, Kärcher adopted the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform on the cloud because they feel it’s vital to their success.
“Digitalization is essential for us. It’s about matching our products with our solutions and systems and generating efficiencies and value for our customers. Digital transformation is a key element in generating internal efficiencies in our operations. It creates synergy by tapping into the productivity of our employees, which increases the quality of our products.” – Michael Stritzelberger, Executive Vice President Central R&D, Kärcher
