Mafat­lal In­dus­tries of­fer the widest range of high-qual­ity fab­rics. With the OEKO-TEX Qual­ity Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and the ISO 9001:2008 se­ries of qual­ity stan­dards, we have been able to con­tin­u­ously meet the ever-shift­ing needs of our con­sumer

oing Dig­i­tal - what does it mean to you and your or­ga­ni­za­tion?

Per­cep­tions in go­ing dig­i­tal are dif­fer­ent for dif­fer­ent in­di­vid­u­als and so is for dif­fer­ent or­ga­ni­za­tions (within the same in­dus­try as well). I be­lieve Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion can be started at any level de­pend­ing on the tech­no­log­i­cal ma­tu­rity of the or­ga­ni­za­tion. Dig­i­tal for us means to start think­ing of mov­ing away from legacy prac­tices and sys­tems to bet­ter in­dus­try stan­dard prac­tices and mean­ing­ful sys­tems which will en­able us to have the ro­bust in­ter­nal process and help us serve our cus­tomers bet­ter.

What is your Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion plan, strat­egy and the de­liv­er­ables you ex­pect or are al­ready com­ing in?

Our Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion jour­ney has be­gun from the very ba­sics where we have al­ready in­vested heav­ily into the up­grades of our end com­put­ing de­vices, net­work­ing in­fra­struc­ture, servers and stor­age, mov­ing into NGFW, ERP and ap­pli­ca­tion up­grades, re­tir­ing legacy apps, etc. By build­ing a se­cure and more re­li­able in­fra we have paved our path to ven­ture into the dig­i­tal world. We will now start look­ing at projects which will help us drive our busi­ness in more ef­fi­cient ways by lever­ag­ing the ex­ist­ing ca­pac­i­ties. This could be achieved with an in­sight into the avail­able data by an­a­lyt­ics. Au­to­ma­tion of man­ual process wher­ever pos­si­ble could be the starters, ware­house man­age­ment, op­er­at­ing through bar­cod­ing process, look at IoT for Man­u­fac­tur­ing sites and pre­ven­tive main­te­nance, etc. Eval­u­a­tion of how cloud com­put­ing will help us is also up on the cards. The laun­dry list is huge how­ever what will con­vert into re­al­ity and what will be pushed for­ward will only be de­cided as we progress and also will de­pend on what value ad­di­tion will the ini­tia­tive bring to the table.
