Industry 4.0 is the digitalization of the manufacturing sector, in which big data, advanced analytics and the IoT are leveraged to make production smarter and faster, create better profit margins, and give companies a competitive advantage. Industry 4.0 is bound to change manufacturing significantly and as more smart manufacturing technologies are introduced, every company must act now to stay competitive. Germany plays a pioneering role in the realm of digitalization and the term Industry 4.0 is ubiquitous.
