Manufacturers everywhere have been focused on Industry 4.0, which has helped them improve revenue, reduce cost of goods sold, and minimize indirect expenses while contributing to significant working capital. Though Industry 4.0 has not yet reached its full potential, the next focus for manufacturers will be on what we at Capgemini call “intelligent industry,” or, in other words, a focus on pioneering new ways of designing, manufacturing, operating, and experiencing products and services, powered by data.
With intelligent industry, companies will become insights-driven organizations across both product development and the entire manufacturing and operations lifecycle. “Siloism” will be rejected, high levels of automation will be reached, and hyper-personalization will be the norm – resulting in highly efficient operations.

In addition to these factors, collaborative technologies, which allow supply-chain partners to interact and collaborate, and blockchain, with its ability to create trusted transactions between varied participants, are also becoming mainstream enablers.
To get going, it’s best to start small with a specific use case and build from there.
