This IDC Technology Spotlight analyzes and discusses how intelligent search —the combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, and enterprise search — can optimize a manufacturer’s Industry 4.0 strategy.

How Sinequa Helps Manufacturing Organizations Unlock the Potential of their Data

Industry 4.0, an initiative focused on the digitization of manufacturing operations, has evolved to include a digital thread extended to design, R&D, engineering, production, and service in a closed-loop across multiple global locations. It is the embodiment of the manufacturing digital transformation (DX). Through this platform approach that ties together multiple IT tools, organizations are collecting as much data as possible in the hope that it will prove useful for creating new efficiencies, fostering knowledge creation and sharing, increasing revenue, shortening time to market, reducing risk, and improving resiliency.

Key Stats

  • Manufacturing knowledge workers waste up to 18 hours per week searching for, combining, and reformatting information
  • Manufacturers without intelligent search lose productivity time and miss out on valuable business insights

What’s Important

  • Manufacturers must incorporate intelligent search as part of their Industry 4.0 strategy
  • Intelligent search combines enterprise search, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data analytics technology for decision support across varied teams, including design, R&D, engineering, production, and service
