Industrial digital transformation: Using AWS to win freedom from pilot purgatory

Introduction Digital transformation is not a buzzword anymore. In fact, the last 18 months of the COVID-19 pandemic have upended the very nature of work to the extent that we are currently experiencing what many are calling the “Great Resignation.” The new normal is quite different; remote work is here to stay. If companies do […]
