Manufacturing vs. COVID-19.
Digital Transformation as the Key Factor
Fighting the Pandemic
Dear sirs,

ANO «Data Economy» in cooperation with Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation (Minpormtorg), Zyfra Group of Companies and Confederation of Indian Industry provide survey "Manufacturing vs. COVID-19. Digital Transformation as the Key Factor Fighting the Pandemic" targeting manufacturing companies in India. The main objective of this survey is to discover the key problems in the manufacturing industry that have become more aggravated by COVID-19 pandemic. And how the digital transformation could cope with these and future similar issues.


Results of the survey will assist us in making digitalization initiatives in manufacturing more focused on resolving problems the industry is facing.

The completion of the survey will take only 5 minutes of your time

For additional questions: panisimov@data-economy.ru

Thank you!
