Industry 4.0, or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is about industrial transformation using new digital technology.

IIoT makes it possible to gather and analyze data across machines and business systems, enabling faster, more flexible, and more efficient processes to produce higher-quality individualized goods at lower costs. Intelligent Enterprises use the latest technologies like the IoT, Edge and Cloud Computing, Big Data Lakes, Artificial Intelligence, Sensors, Autonomous Systems, and Cobots to turn insight into action across the business – in real-time to accelerate data-driven innovation and process automation, launch new business models, deliver exceptional experiences, and more!

In this ‘Virtual Masterclass Series’, we intend to help Industry recalibrate customer priorities & re-imagine technology adoption. Participate in this 12-part knowledge series with a deep dive into the world of enterprise technologies and learn more about creating ‘The Intelligent Enterprise’ which is resilient and can tide over challenging times. Understand why Industry 4.0 is not just about the automation of the shopfloor; explore how it connects each link in the supply chain to your intelligent enterprise.

    Industry 4.0 and digital transformation in both manufacturing and supply chain will gain significant momentum in 2020 as IoT, Edge computing are increasingly adopted. Gartner states that by 2024, at least 50% of enterprise applications in production will be IoT enabled. With solutions enabled by IoT in the cloud and at the edge, you can put Industry 4.0 to work companywide, so that companies can stay connected with their customers and with their customer’s customer, integrate with their partners – and most of all – really stay ahead of the competition. And staying ahead of the.. competition and serving the customer are the ultimate goals of this transformation. There are several key components that help building IoT enabled solutions, such as big data architecture on the cloud, data ingestion mechanisms, sensor data contextualisation, edge computing, communication protocols apart from support for the multiple data types, blockchain and security mechanisms. As a part of these sessions, we offer a deeper view into these concepts.

    An application still resides within the boundary of a single enterprise. There are many new possibilities that can be achieved when the scope of an application expands beyond the boundary of a single enterprise. Whether it is sourcing the best supplier of a material or identifying the best logistics partner, several network applications have enhanced the ability for enterprises to deliver value faster and in a more economical manner. Hear from our experts how such network application scenarios are being leveraged by customers globally.
