Explaining the differences between digitization and digitalization, Annette Kay Clayton, president and CEO of Schneider Electric North America Operations, and chief supply chain officer, introduced the panel on Adapting to a Digital Supply Chain.
“Digitization is simply the conversion of something from an analog format into a digital one,” she said. “Digitalization is enabling, improving, or transforming business functions, operations, processes, and models by applying digital technologies and digitized data to create insight and knowledge for us to take action.”
The panel was sponsored by Schneider Electric.
