One of the target of Industry 4.0 is to make business process digitized. But prerequisite to do it is to have digitized data along all the process though it is executed by different entities. Each company has, but often ( read always ) they return analogical. When? When somebody sends a fax, an e-mail or rewrites the information in internet site of another company. They seems digital because somebody used an internet tool, but the digital chain have been broken by the human being: eyes and fingers are analogic, not digital. When the digitized chain has been broken it is impossible to use business rules managers or batch analysis systems to execute or optimize process: all the efforts in digitizing are frustrated. How can we keep data digitized to manage, analyze and optimize process? Obviously there are many ways: for instance you can collect the information all over the process as tracking data, activate actions depending on the events, and then batch analyze them. Do you remember the 1990’s ISO 9004 certification rules, don’t’ you?
Well, to avoid digitized information return analog back, you may use the services of a community network for communication and to store data, so no eye, no finger, no human being will make them analog and you will be enabled to digitize your process. Saving your money.
How can you save your money?
