Digital Transformation Strategy

Digital Transformation

Thales is a global technology leader with expertise in an impressive array of digital technologies that have wide-ranging applications in defence, rail transport, aerospace, space and security. The digital transformation is radically reshaping whole sections of the economy.

In fact, the Group has made "digital" one of the five pillars of its transformation programme. Thales believes that these technologies have the potential to transform not only our customer value propositions but the whole way we work. The Group believes the potential benefits of these technologies - in terms of new business opportunities and better competitive performance - outweigh the risks of disruption.
