What's required to be on the leading edge of metals technology?

And how are competitors investing IT dollars that could result in your organization being out of date or irrelevant?

The Information Technology Survey Report has been designed to provide easy-to-understand benchmarks for information technology related issues for MSCI members, both service centers and mills. It helps firms evaluate their own information technology policies and procedures relative to that of similar sized firms in order to identify strengths and weaknesses or improvement opportunities. The report includes information on:

  • IT spending
  • E-commerce
  • Shop floor and shipping IT
  • Sales and administrative IT
  • Cybersecurity

Spotting significant differences between your own performance and the composites can be the first step toward identifying gaps and improving performance.

MSCI’s annual surveys are promoted to member companies by sending an e-mail invitation to both the CEO and the top functional staff member whose area of expertise aligns with the survey being promoted. For example, in addition to the company CEO the top Human Resources person at a company will receive survey requests for our Compensation Surveys, the top safety person will receive Safety Survey participation requests, the top Information Technology person will receive IT Survey requests, and so on.

If, in addition to the people mentioned above, you are interested in receiving any of our annual survey requests let us know which surveys you are interested in by completing the form below.
