With Supply Chains In Flux, This 3D Printing Startup Fortified Operations

At the beginning of 2020, things were really falling into place for Boston-based Fortify. The young 3D printing company was planning a springtime move to a new headquarters with triple the floor space and room to grow, planning to start shipping their first 3D printers in the summer. Such big moves are significant milestones for any company, and all the more so when they represent the first tangible strides into the market for a four-year-old startup. That was, of course, all the plan before Covid-19 grabbed the globe.

By David Sweetman, Senior Director, Global Product Marketing SAP S/4HANA

Even when no playbook, expertise, and best practice exist, there’s always plenty of data ready to be put to work to generate insights, offer recommendations, and inspire ingenuity.

The IDC market spotlight, “Digital Transformation in Times of Change: What Intelligent Enterprises Need from Their ERP Systems,” predicts artificial intelligence (AI) will be the core for organizations by the end of 2020, as 50% purchase applications focused on the user experience.
