During COVID-19, each company was able to immediately translate its engineering knowledge to building ventilators. That doesn't seem like a data story, but it is. Properly capturing, maintaining, and sharing engineering specs, tests, and versions of emerging, older, and existing products allows these companies to more rapidly transition and build solutions for new needs and opportunities. … [Read more...] about COVID-19 didn’t break your business.
