The thought process behind this is that businesses can take advantage of this data to reach their business goals and get a better insight into their workflow to potentially add extra value. The businesses that have adopted this approach have shown promising results so far, but there’s still the question of why data have to be relegated to complex analytics processes.

With that in mind, here are some important statistics you should know about Industry 4.0 to put things into context and help you navigate the complex world of the modern supply chain.
