Key Points

  • Digital transformation goes beyond just the Manufacturing Sector. However, in manufacturing it is focused on 110T and Industry 4.0.
  • Adoption of these new technologies is important to add business value and not fall behind.
  • Industry 4.0 has more solutions and more possibilities than Industry 3.0.
  • Digital Transformation allows companies to empower employees to make better and more rapid decisions from the top floor to the shop floor and vice versa.
