INDUSTRY 4.0


An evolution in how products are designed, manufactured and operated.

QiO is accelerating adoption of Industry 4.0.

The Future is Now


The term Industry 4.0 was coined by the German Government in 2011 as part of a multi-year strategic plan to digitise industrial, manufacturing, supply chain and customer interactions.

$900B → 2020

PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that there will be over $900 billion in Industry 4.0 investments through 2020.

THE 3 GOALS OF INDUSTRY 4.0


  • IMPROVE INTEROPERABILITY

    Enhanced communication and the synthesis of machine and human-generated data will improve the interoperability of different systems and applications.

  • DRIVE TRANSPARENCY

    Improved visibility across the value chain will provide higher value context and unprecedented situational awareness.

  • SUPPLEMENT HUMAN KNOWLEDGE

    Machine derived insights combined with making information more easily available and comprehensible will drive better business outcomes.

DRIVERS OF CHANGE


The business drivers propelling global industrials to adopt an Industry 4.0 strategy include:

  • Improve Productivity and Operational Efficiency

    Due to an aging workforce, increasing wage costs, lower productivity and competitive threats from emerging nations industrials need to find new ways to do more while consuming less.

  • Software-Defined Business Models

    Industrials face pressure from lean, agile, start-ups to protect and grow revenue by digitalising products and creating new service models.

  • Own the Customer

    To remain relevant, industrials need to retain ownership of their customer relationships as competitors look to use new data science tools to capture long-term service contracts and customer data.

  • On-Demand Economy

    Rapid changes in customer and market demand are forcing industrials to implement new ways of designing, developing, manufacturing and distributing their products.

Why Now


  • CONSUMERISATION OF THE ENTERPRISE

    The boundaries between B2B and B2C are disappearing creating cloud-centric ecosystems. Smarter products are fostering closer customer relationships and creating deeper insights. For industrials, these smarter products, and the data they produce, will unlock new opportunities for growth.

  • OPEN SOURCE MOVEMENT

    The use of open source software, built for the cloud, is accelerating the pace of innovation, reducing cost, and enabling unprecedented scale. By supporting open source projects, industrials can attract, retain and nurture talent and have access to new sources of innovation.

We believe engineers need to have a platform to explore and experiment without being hindered by the underlying technology. The NAUTILIANTM Platform was purpose-built to help accelerate adoption of Industry 4.0.
