Innovating in a digital world
Powered by universal connectivity, ultra-cheap processing power, and explosive increases in data volumes, the digital revolution is sweeping over all industries. Although generally associated with fast-moving industries such as technology and consumer electronics, digital technology will fundamentally change the construction and building materials industries as well.
LafargeHolcim has taken this opportunity seriously and started to build the foundations for success in this area.
For example, industrial performance teams are exploring how we can harness software and big data techniques to change the management, productivity, and agility of our cement plant assets.
R&D teams are becoming increasingly familiar with building information modelling and 3D printing to understand them and help shape how these trends will one day revolutionize the construction industry.
Retail teams are also looking at how digital platforms can provide e-commerce marketplaces for products and services and are experimenting with online business models.
