The signals from the market

In QII/2023, the positive signs were observed for the domestic market, with total retail of goods and service revenue in the first six months increasing by 10.9% compared to the same period, meeting basic essential needs for the people. However, from an overall economic perspective: a sharp decline in external demand, inflation has cooled but remains high, with many risks lurking, monetary policy continues to tighten, and many obstacles make it difficult for the domestic market to maintain momentum.

Faced with the complex global and domestic situation, there is a prediction of economic pressure trending sharply for businesses, especially in the manufacturing sector.

In the context of macro and microeconomic fluctuations, many businesses believe that digital transformation is an opportunity for businesses to adapt, preparing for unpredictable future scenarios. Representatives from the Enterprise Management Department of the Ministry of Information and Communications stated that 94% of businesses recognize technology as a strategic solution that needs to be strongly invested in.

The coverage of digital technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), etc., in enterprises is increasing day by day, especially in the manufacturing sector. In which, moving data to the cloud and applying Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is the top choice not only for Vietnamese businesses but globally in the strategy of optimizing operations and sustainable development.

With over 20 years of experience as an expert in business and technical consulting for ERP software implementation projects for multi-industry, large-scale enterprises, the Director of Enterprise Solutions at CMC Consulting stated that Vietnamese businesses are ready to participate in the digital transformation process because they clearly understand the importance of technology in promoting the development and growth of businesses. However, one of the biggest challenges for most businesses is that they do not know where to start or which area to focus on.

Strategic consulting for manufacturing businesses to 'ride the wave'

The digital transformation process for businesses is never easy, as there are always internal and external barriers, such as difficulties in integrating digital technology solutions, a lack of capability in terms of specialized skills, and the necessary knowledge for development.
