Industry 4.0 and the Role of Identity and Access Management

Industry 4.0: One of the hotter topics in industrial computing, refers to the creation and usage of “smart factories.” The term Industry 4.0 was initially coined in 2011 as part of the German government’s strategy around the digitization of the manufacturing industry.
