SINGAPORE -- Companies, whether they are manufacturers or software providers, must speed up the process of transformation to survive the changes of the fourth industrial revolution. And to do that, they cannot walk alone.

That was the message from leaders of Asian companies speaking at the Nikkei Asia300 Summit held in Singapore on Thursday. The complexity of digital transformation is so great, they said, that companies will need to work hand-in-hand with external partners, startups or even their own customers.
