The 4th Industrial Revolution is characterised by a confluence of different technologies coming together, and massive amounts of data being generated. Companies are incorporating Industry 4.0 technologies into their operations, and creating new business models through digitalising and transforming their products and services. As industry lines overlap, this has consequences for how companies think about their business.
