Laggards and Leaders: Fast-Tracking Manufacturing to Industry 4.0 from a Legacy Ecosystem
What's this research about?
Manufacturers are mid-way through some far-reaching digital transformation and infrastructure modernization plans that will open a door to truly end-to-end industrial automation across the supply chain.
The cloud, 5G, and edge networking for production and operational performance improvements and new technologies like AI/ML-driven predictive maintenance, digital twins, and the industrial internet of things must be implemented within a backdrop of legacy IT infrastructure and resistance to change at a factory floor level.
This interview explores the barriers that are needed to be overcome if Industry 4.0 aspirations/ambitions are to be met as well as the risks and challenges of securing the network, safeguarding data storage and use in the cloud, and managing a shifting cybersecurity threat landscape that’s been accentuated by the post-pandemic move to remote working and fractured supply chains.
The report is due to be published in August 2022.
