What Industry Experts Say?

"Companies must embrace Industry 4.0 to prepare the digital foundation needed for a manufacturing future that is like no other - Industry X.0 - which has at its heart highly intelligent, interconnected products and ecosystems that create a fully digital value chain, supplemented by new core innovation competencies and deep cultural change. Therefore, beyond digitalization, organizational talent, structures and processes will need to be adapted and built across the enterprise to put it on the right trajectory into this future of “connected everything.”"
- Mr Senthil Ramani, Managing Director, Accenture

"Industry 4.0 is a global leadership topic that should be on top of any CXO’s agenda. Strong leadership competency is an imperative to drive enterprise transformation, to shift the focus from today’s operational needs to readiness for tomorrow’s opportunities."
- Mr Amos Leong, CEO, Univac

"As part of our Smart Enterprise program, we have been investing in many initiatives to achieve significant improvements in speed, productivity, and quality. Here, we see this Index (SIRI) as a useful tool to help us to unlock maximum value by not only pushing us to investigate new dimensions that were not considered previously, but also allowing us to pursue our Industry 4.0 strategy in a more targeted fashion."
- Mr Laurent Filipozzi, Site Head, Infineon Plant, Singapore

"Like us, many companies have already started their transformation journey. Beyond addressing the operational concerns today, this Index (SIRI) is a useful framework to also guide our future decisions to deliver sustained impact. It also ensures that we’re always moving in the right direction and focusing on the things that matter."
- Mr Goh Koon Eng, General Manager, Chevron Oronite
