Managing change is an essential function of any technology executives, and change has become a constant in recent years. Companies in the industrial sector, including manufacturing, agriculture, energy, and natural resources, have not been immune to challenges that are driving change, including technology upgrades, growing supply chain challenges and materials shortages creating issues. Industrial companies are focused less on areas such as new technology and driven more by employee experience.

SAPinsider surveyed 130 technology leaders worldwide during May and June 2022 about their top change drivers, strategies, and technologies this year. The findings were published in the CIO benchmark report “How Tech Executives are Leading Organizational and Technology Change.”

This market insight will focus on the data from respondents in the industrial sector, including how 37% are driven by integrating technologies across the business, compared to 53% of the rest of respondents.
