In an era of increasing business volatility, supply chain resiliency is not an option—it’s an urgent imperative. Today, companies need to be able to respond to volatile demand, uncertain supply, and constrained capacity. But as we look beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, companies must also be able to respond to demanding customers that will look for individualized and sustainable products. If anything, this volatility has highlighted the need for digital transformation and Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Industry 4.0/IIoT started with smart manufacturing, but it is much more than that. As the cost of sensors reduce and ecosystems mature, companies are developing intelligent products and assets that can capture more information and integrate more deeply into horizontal business processes. SAP's Industry 4.Now provides the blueprint to help customers realize the potential of Industry 4.0/IIoT.

SAP Industry 4.Now helps companies create and capture a digital thread of products and assets throughout their entire life cycle and maximize technology innovations like IoT, edge and cloud computing, big data lakes, AI, sensors, autonomous systems, and collaborative robotics to drive change and achieve outcomes at scale. And importantly, SAP Industry 4.Now gives organizations the potential to move from a factory-focused initiative to a companywide business strategy. View a sneak peek from SAP here!
