An industry leader in aluminium and copper, Hindalco Industries Limited is the world's largest aluminium rolling company and one of the biggest producers of primary aluminium in Asia. Its copper smelter is one of the world’s largest custom smelters at a single location.
Complexities in existing processes, siloed data within departments, inefficiencies due to labor-intensive processes, and lack of real-time visibility into operations led Jagdish Ramaswamy, Chief Digital Officer, and his core team of experts to find a new way to drive digital transformation at Hindalco.
Regardless of size or scale, the day-to-day challenges faced by heavy industries share commonalities – maintaining productivity, quality, low cost, and a skilled workforce, just to name a few. Embracing digital transformation can reshape operations allowing for more agility and responsiveness.
A solid operational foundation and smart strategies can prepare an organization like Hindalco for better adoption, future integration and ultimately growth.
