Industry 4.0: What is it?
Industry 4.0 is a concept which is used to describe a new way to organise production means. It is the meeting point of the virtual world, digital conception, management and products and objects of the real world.
Why is it so important for the manufacturing world to take that digital turn?
In Canada, 4 out of 5 SME’s are still out of the digital wagon. In the near future, these companies with a low (or no) digital maturity will most probably become obsolete. Traditional sectors such as Manufacturing and Construction are experiencing the biggest digital gap. They are way behind other sectors.
Companies with a high digital maturity are more likely to have had a higher growth in their sales in the past 3 years. There is a very tight correlation between digital maturity, yield and profit! *

In Quebec: the digital economy action plan
Quebec Government investment
In total, Quebec’s government is investing over 200 millions dollars over 5 years in fiscal and budgetary measures.
It means 28 specific measures under 5 priority intervention axis:
Axis 1: Stimulate innovations through technologies and data
Axis 2 – Accelerate the transformation of companies and the adoption of e-commerce
Axis 3: Reinforce the position of CIT as a world leader
Axis 4: Acquire the necessary digital competencies
Axis 5: Make sure that the business environment is attractive and favorable to the digital transformation
C'est au Québec que la transition est la plus rapide, puisque 26% des PME affichent un profil plus numérique, ce qui est attribuable à une plus grande sensibilisation de la part des gouvernements et milieux d'affaires.
