Digitalization is one of the key technology trends of this century. The intelligent use of data derived from operations has transformed major industries, driving efficiency improvements and increased profitability in sectors as diverse as retail, transport, supply chain logistics and energy. There has already been considerable literature produced on the benefits of digitalization to the cement industry.

This article was orginally published in World Cement Envirotech 2023.
