The digital transformation has geared up noticeably and is showing strong dynamics in areas such as e-commerce, automation, and robot technology and artificial intelligence. I expect the pace of investment in digitization to pick up strongly in 2018 across all sectors. Modernized ERP systems and cloud-based platforms will continue to play a large role in providing a stable digital core. In many sectors, companies are still in the early stages of realizing the technical possibilities for reducing production costs, for intelligent controlling of their warehousing and logistics, or for optimizing advertising and marketing activities (e-commerce).
