Speaker

Digital transformation differs from automatisation and informatisation: it requires systemic changes of business processes, business models, and economic relations within and around the enterprise. Creating an environment for the digital transformation of SMEs operating in the traditional sectors of the economy should envisage a palette of specialised technological and business consultations that can be delivered by competence centres, collaboration of public and private sectors in country-wide initiatives (i.e. on skills-building and common standards), as well as a comprehensive financial framework to support SMEs in this complex endeavour.  Digital transformation is understood by the European Commission as a fusion of advanced technologies that integrates physical and digital systems and when combined with innovative business models and processes, leads to the creation of smart products, services and significant improvement of productivity.  3D printing makes the production process faster and cheaper, data analysis increases the efficiency of products, digital databases for real time checks facilitate management, and digital technology makes the acquisition of materials and parts easier [DigitaliseSME, 2020].
