UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS – September 11, 2023 – For many businesses, the annual Gartner® Hype Cyle™ provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals.
This year, 4Industry is proud to announce that it was included in 3 different Gartner Hype Cycle reports:
- Hype Cycle for Advanced Technologies for Manufacturers, July 2023
- Hype Cycle for Workforce Transformation, July 2023
- Hype Cycle for Manufacturing Operations Strategy, July 2023
In his analysis of the current state of manufacturing operations, Gartner analyst Simon Jacobson emphasizes that “Frontline workers are indispensable and the convergence of technology innovation and investment in their experience is critical for improving engagement, satisfaction, and retention: Increasing operational excellence, flexibility and quality of outputs by continuous learning but also context specific operations to limit deviations from standard procedures.”
We believe that this is a key business driver for our customers, as their paper-based and legacy digital tools are often insufficient to support ambitious OpEx methodologies like TPM and IWS.
We think that we fulfil this important role for our customers and proud to be at the cutting-edge of connected worker technology. Therefore, we are thrilled to be recognized by Gartner as a Sample Vendor in the Connected Factory Worker category.
4Industry connects people and machines. Our Connected Worker Platform—built on ServiceNow—gathers all the tools, forms, knowledge, and data manufacturing workers need to perform their job on an intuitive, one-stop-shop application. By putting the worker at the heart of the factory, 4Industry makes work more efficient, straightforward, and safe, thereby increasing OEE, productivity, and operational resilience.
