Today, we are at the threshold of the fourth Industrial Revolution.

That’s why we talk about Industry 4.0 One is the Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems such as sensors that can collect data that can be useful for you business intelligence.

 It does this for example through enhanced consumer experience, increased operational efficiency and new business opportunities innovation.
  13. 13. Consumer Experience Take a look at the evolution in consumer experience: The growth of digital channels and devices gives consumers greater access to information and the means for better communication and collaboration. With this the consumer can demand radical shifts in business processes, service and policies. 
 It is vital that brands use this new consumer power in their advantage and find ways to strengthen the mutual relationship. It is through differentiation, transparency and consumer involvement that organizations can benefit from this evolution. And digitization can help to achieve this.

 Users want intuitive interfaces, around-the-clock availability, real-time fulfillment, personalized treatment… standards are higher than ever. To meet these high consumer expectations, companies can accelerate the digitization of their business processes. 
 Operational processes
  17. 17. This doesn’t mean simply automating an existing process. Companies can go as far as to reinvent the entire business process. This includes cutting the number of steps to go to market, reduce the number of documents and policies & develop automated decision-making by algorithms.
 In addition, replacing paper and manual processes with software allows businesses to automatically collect data that can be mined to better understand process performance, cost drivers and causes of risk. 
 Companies can harvest the advantages of Big Data. Operational processes

We believe it can require no less than the creation of enhanced or new business models, new operating models, new ways of interacting with consumers and new ways of selling to be part of tomorrow’s business landscape.
 Therefore organizations need to decide whether they can enhance or transform their existing business models, or whether they need to invent new ones. Creating new business models

  22. 22. But don’t think of digital transformation as a goal.
 Not even connected objects, the Internet of Things or Big Data are goals. But information, creating added value and keeping your business viable in the future are goals. If you want to achieve these goals you might want to digitize.

 “The winners will act now, and build a strategic advantage that leaves their counterparts wondering what happened.”* *Ernst & Young; “The digitization of everything”
