Business 4.0 – Intelligent, Agile, Automated and on the Cloud

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is materially underway driving confluence of the physical, digital and biological worlds. While the first three industrial revolutions were driven by steam power, mass production and the advent of computing respectively, the next generation of change taking place on our watch is an even more profound one. The rapid pace of breakthroughs in emerging technologies, their network effect one each other and the embedding of technology into almost all aspects of business and life, is reshaping entire industries. While the macro has shifted, the micro also needs to adjust to a new paradigm. The Industry 4.0 landscape requires that corporations also follow suit and engage in their own fourth generational evolution.

And they are rising to this challenge. Having built their digital spines and moved to the cloud, a new generation of agile organizations are now embracing automation, robotics and artificial intelligence. By putting experience first, leading enterprises are winning over new customers and creating growth at a super accelerated pace. At TCS Summit 2017, we will bring perspectives from winning businesses and leaders that are going beyond the regular digital strategies and reimagining every aspect of their enterprise. Welcome to business 4.0.
