The report, ‘Big data and B2B digital platforms: The next frontier for Europe’s industry and enterprises‘ looks into the potential to create new value in three important industries: automotive, healthcare/pharma and mechanical engineering. It sets out the key challenges of digital transformation in each of these industries, assesses key success factors, and provides recommendations on how to overcome remaining problems and speed up the modernisation process. The report draws on success stories and business case studies as well as interviews with key industrial players.
