In the era of connected enterprises and total digitalization, finding a balance between optimizing productivity and innovating has never been simpler, yet more difficult, than ever before.
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, the Internet of Things, automation, and other technologies bring us more and more new types of data. On the one hand, it’s good to have a space for maneuvers. However, on the other hand, many senior executives remain less prepared than they think they are. Navigating the Fourth Industrial Revolution not only changes the way we think but also impacts how we learn and work using data to create value from the findings obtained through advanced technologies.
An amalgam of opportunity and ambiguity
According to a recent Deloitte Global survey, 72% of C-level executives across 19 countries (from the Americas, Asia, and Europe, and came from all major industry sectors) are ready to adopt and effectively use smart and autonomous technologies within their organizations.
43% of them consider a lack of internal alignment about which strategies to follow, as the most significant challenge their organizations face as they seek to adopt new technologies and applications. Intellectsoft’s experts have created unique infographics to shed some light on the most vital aspects and challenges the concept of Industry 4.0 owns today.
What’s next? A New Lens of Innovation or Another Revolution
When it comes to an impact Industry 4.0 will have on organizations and, most importantly, on the workforce, many questions arise. 22% of executives surveyed believe that the new industrial revolution will have a significant effect on their companies. Another question — what kind of effect it will be.
Undoubtedly, Industry 4.0 is bringing changes to every geography and solution. Yet many executives still do not express the urgency of tackling the challenge of using the full potential of smart technologies to enable digital-physical integration. It is evident that the old way of doing things isn’t enough anymore, but many executives continue to focus on traditional business operations.
