THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION: IT’S LIFE, JIM, BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT
AN INTERACTIVE GUIDE FOR PRODUCT-ORIENTED COMPANIES
There are times when it feels like the whole world is rushing at you at once. For product-oriented companies like manufacturers, retailers and software developers, this is one of those times.
We’re entering the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), where radical change is happening on all fronts: from the way, products are designed and tested, to the way they’re manufactured, delivered and maintained.
Those changes are sweeping aside everything we thought we knew about the industries we operate in and replacing it with tantalizing glimpses of an entirely new world. Like Captain James T. Kirk surveying an alien planet, what we’re looking at is “life, but not as we know it”.
IN THIS GUIDE:
HOW TO APPROACH THE NEW WORLD OF 4IR
In this first edition of the guide we would like to guide you through: With so much change happening, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the possibilities and to get distracted by “shiny objects” that aren’t the most appropriate thing for your business to focus on. We’ve created this interactive guide as an orientation point: a place to pause and survey the landscape of 4IR and start to plan your journey through it.
In this first edition of the guide we would like to guide you through:
- Why everything starts with the customer
- Choosing the right approach: operational improvement or business model change?
- How Oracle can help
Throughout, you’ll also find links to case studies and further information to help with your decision-making. And if you’d like to discuss a pilot or proof of concept of your chosen approach, we have the tech and the experts to make it happen.
