4IR: Promise or Peril?

Richard Essigs, Partner, Consumer Products & Retail Market Segment, EY
Kathryn Gramling, Partner, Consumer Products and Retail Market Segment Leader, EY

4IR — the Fourth Industrial Revolution — is here and its implications are far-reaching. Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous vehicles are disrupting every sector. Evolving technologies, enabled by the rapid development of mobile networks and data, are changing how consumers interact, engage and purchase. Companies must adapt the way they develop, engage, market and deliver products and services — and industry leaders must rethink their operating models, while innovating for tomorrow’s consumer.
