The world has entered into the fourth industrial revolution. Corporate think tanks have been discussing the effect of “Industry 4.0” on business. The world has seen three major revolutions – mechanization, electrification and information. The fourth revolution is termed as ‘Industry 4.0.’ This new industrial revolution is expected to take international business by storm. Germany adopted ‘Industry 4.0’ as a German national strategy in April 2013. The future industry innovation trends indicate utilisation of data analytics, increased level of business intelligence in manufacturing, service, integration of cyber-physical systems, and smart work platforms. Rightly said, these define ‘industry 4.0.’

The line differentiating physical, digital and biological interface is now just a blur. The way we interact with emerging and digital technology such as artificial intelligence (AI), analytics and the Internet of things (IoT) is witnessing a rapid transformation. Artificial intelligence has revamped the business ecosystem.

Innovative strategies and competitiveness is the way forward.

It has not just redefined how work is executed but also questioned existing types of work. Industry 4.0 is a clarion call for business leaders to deal with this disruptive shift comprehensively and seize the new opportunities it has brought.
