What better time to talk revolution than with July independence holidays just around the corner here in the U.S. and in France. What revolution am I talking about? The 4th Industrial Revolution. While it lacks the hot dog eating contest, hometown parades or amazing fireworks, it will have enormous ramifications for our global economy. To help you take full advantage of opportunities that Industry 4.0 will bring, we wrote an eBook — Supply Chain 4.0: Are You Ready?
Only a decade ago the idea of a fully autonomous supply chain or manufacturing plant sounded unlikely, something a science fiction writer would think up. But, this world is already starting to appear. The industrial manufacturing industry as a whole has spent more than $121 million on the Internet of Things (IoT) already, and $500 billion will likely be dedicated to the IoT by 2020. Behind the rise of IoT is Big Data analytics, which is helping companies drive productivity gains and reduce costs across their value chain.
With supply chain at the epicenter of this change, the eBook tells you what you need to know about Industry 4.0 and how to position your supply chain for success. As our CTO (and Tech Innovator of the Year), Shariq Mansoor, wrote in his last blog post, “The wide adoption of the technology and techniques that comprise Industry 4.0 has big implications for manufacturers of all stripes. Businesses that begin investing in these capabilities now will likely be set on a trajectory for sustainable growth beyond what laggard competitors can achieve.”
