"India Inc. is witnessing a shift towards smart factory shop floors designed to boost productivity, improve quality, and optimise costs to help companies stay competitive. However, we are also staring at a huge skills gap in the country's workforce when it comes to operating Industry 4.0 technologies. This must be addressed at both the corporate and government policy levels to accelerate India's digital transformation and achieve our collective vision of becoming a $5 Trillion economy by 2024", said Dilip Sawhney, Managing Director, Rockwell Automation India.

Industrial IoT is estimated to have an economic impact of 4.6 trillion dollars by 2025 as new technologies including analytics, mobility, app platforms, and the cloud, help securely connect plant information with enterprise systems.

"In addition to investing in the right technology and systems, businesses also need to invest in people right now to build the workforce of tomorrow. To make the Industry 4.0 enabled connected enterprise a reality, we first need to start creating a pipeline of skilled problem solvers, builders, makers, and innovators. It is towards this goal that Rockwell Automation will continue to partner with industry and academic institutions in India and across the region," emphasised Bartolomeo.
