What Is IIoT/Industry 4.0?

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterised by digitalisation. From the supplier all the way through to the consumer, all aspects of business will be interconnected, supported by digital infrastructure and advanced robotics.
This means new business models and precise, individualised customer service, as well as colossal improvements in efficiency, speed and quality. With an abundance of data, as well as new metrics to utilise this data, size no longer matters when it comes to gaining a competitive advantage.


As many as 40% of the current Fortune 500 companies will be unable to adapt to IIoT.


Robots will perform 45 per cent of manufacturing tasks within ten years, up from about 10% today.


Within the next five years, more than 80% of companies will have digitalised their value chains.

Will My Business Be Affected?

IIoT/Industry 4.0 is coming. Within the next five years, innovation is expected to progress to the point where disruptive technology will be widespread. Unlike before, where growth and innovation was linear, IIoT and Industry 4.0 will progress to the point where even the rate of progression itself will increase. No industry will be unaffected, but these six will benefit the most:
