“A well-stitched transformation roadmap with a long-term view of value realization is required to usher in the age of change and abundance. The mantra of a successful IoT implementation lies in connecting the discrete pieces of information and the possibilities get limited when IoT is implemented in functional silos. In the trying times of the pandemic, resilient organizations can leverage IoT and Industry 4.0 technology stack to connect disjointed supply chains to reduce disruptions, use data to boost sales, and help maintain social distancing norms to ensure safety and security. IoT has passed beyond the stage of being an overhyped technology and is the most important component in the industry 4.0 technology stack. We believe that COVID-19 will accelerate its impact on a much wider landscape across all stakeholders – citizens, government, technology providers and consumers.”
