With 76% of manufacturers in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) engaging in - or will soon start to engage in - a formal digital transformation program, Infor is helping manufacturers in the Middle East prepare for industry 4.0.

Speaking at the Industry 4.0 Middle East Virtual Confex on December 15, Andrew Kinder, Infor’s SVP for international strategy & sales support, will be discussing the opportunities emerging for Middle East manufacturers who are able to devise, implement, and execute the right digital transformation strategies, shining a light on how the region can embrace digital transformation and prosper amid industry 4.0.

Infor reports that many countries in the Middle East are pursuing sector-specific development plans to modernise the industry sector and drive their national transformation initiatives. Driving factors for the acceleration has been the combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and that 75% of the Middle East population are either Millennials or Gen Z (according to a recent report from the IDC).

The company adds that with 76% of manufacturers in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa engaging in - or will soon start to engage in - a formal digital transformation program, it is important to avoid common pitfalls by following the correct steps when it comes to planning and implementing a digital transformation strategy. 

Currently Infor is working with major manufacturing companies in the Middle East to drive their digital transformation strategy, companies like, Saudi Bugshan Barmaja Co. Ltd, the company plans to digitally transform and automate key business functions such \as human capital management, customer relationship management, finance, procurement, warehouse, and supply chain management.

“Manufacturers of all types in the Middle East can reap huge benefits from the 4th Industrial Revolution if they embrace change and digitally transform with the right strategy and the best digital solutions. Attendees at Industry 4.0 Middle East will have the opportunity to learn more about strategies to succeed in these fast-changing times, and how Infor solutions can automate, digitize, and future-proof their processes and operations,” commented Khaled Al Shami, Infor’s director of solution consulting for the Middle East & Africa.
