TechPoint’s report, Putting Tech to Work in Critical Industries: Indiana’s potential as a global leader for technology application and adoption, details an opportunity for the organization to stretch beyond its core sector to help other key Hoosier industries thrive by embracing digital innovation. This report, compiled by TEConomy, outlines how it will serve as a bridge between sectors like advanced manufacturing, logistics, agbioscience, life science and the technology of the fourth Industrial Revolution.
In this report:
The state’s best opportunities for increasing tech impacts lie in key horizontals that drive the state’s economy. Because we lag the nation in tech adoption, Indiana must catch up if it is to thrive in the digital age. It’s the single biggest lever in economic development.
Industrial sectors that embrace a transition to tech-enabled applications and skills are poised for significant productivity growth and economic impact. Reorienting Indiana’s tech focus towards this strength could have outsized impacts on the state’s competitive position and its ability to attract and retain leading talent.
The presence of a robust base of advanced industry clusters is generating a large-scale demand for core-tech and tech-reliant talent, including within health and life sciences, agbiosciences, advanced manufacturing (e.g., automotive, aerospace, polymers, metals, etc.), logistics, and more.
