Overview of this book

Digital transformation requires the ability to identify opportunities across industries and apply the right technologies and tools to achieve results. This book is divided into two parts with the first covering what digital transformation is and why it is important. The second part focuses on how digital transformation works. After an introduction to digital transformation, you will explore the transformation journey in logical steps and understand how to build business cases and create productivity benefit statements. Next, you’ll delve into advanced topics relating to overcoming various challenges. Later, the book will take you through case studies in both private and public sector organizations. You’ll explore private sector organizations such as industrial and hi-tech manufacturing in detail and get to grips with public sector organizations by learning how transformation can be achieved on a global scale and how the resident experience can be improved. In addition to this, you will understand the role of artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning in digital transformation. Finally, you’ll discover how to create a playbook that can ensure success in digital transformation. By the end of this book, you’ll be well-versed with industrial digital transformation and be able to apply your skills in the real world.

Semiconductor company ecosystems

Using the example of STMicroelectronics, we will deep dive into the specifics of semiconductor manufacturer ecosystems and how they generate value for stakeholders.

STMicroelectronics ecosystem

STMicroelectronics and its ecosystem partners provide complete hardware and software development environments, reference design boards, tools, and software libraries to support rapid prototyping of semiconductor solutions resulting in complete systems as products. Semiconductor components from STMicroelectronics used for building consumer, automotive, and industrial solutions include the STM32 microcontroller/microprocessor, sensors, actuators, connectivity, security, GNSS for location, power management, motor control, and standard I/O peripherals. Figure 7.4 pictorially shows the parts of this ecosystem, which includes stackable hardware development boards, software solutions for vertical applications, development tools, cloud service solutions, partner...
