Industry 4.0 is the revolution in the industry that helps the devices used in the industry to communicate with each other. With this communication connectivity among departments become easier. The need to protect your systems from the cyber security increases as there is increased connectivity and uses standard communication protocols with Industry 4.0 so its essential that here is reliable communication and advanced identity and access management of machines.

Nowadays, there are only few sensors and machines that are networked with embedded computing. With the Internet of things, more devices and even unfinished products can communicate with each other. It also helps in decentralized analytics and decision making which enables real-time responses. Many manufacturing companies are using robots to tackle complex tasks, but they are involved for greater assignments. Gradually these robots will communicate with each other and will work with the the humans simultaneously and will learn from them.  Slowly these robots will cost less and manage many capabilities then used in the industry today.

Industry 4.0 was designed in the context of manufacturing, yet this has changed. Industry 4.0 now not only cater to the manufacturing industry but also other industries fall under Industry 4.0. ‘Industry 4.0’ has been used for the evolution of the entire organisation. If all the processes in the orgnization is digitized then the manual work is reduced and the profits of the company will be reduced. Impacts of Industry 4.0 are:-

  1. There will be greater reliability and continuous productivity.
  2. There will be lesser loss of time.
