The growth of competition in industry raised the requirements for each manufacturing company to a new quality level. Only those companies that can simultaneously provide high speed of output to the market, deep customization of production with invariably strict requirements to quality and high efficiency will be able to hold and lead the market. The answer to this challenge is industrial digitization, or the concept of "Industry 4.0", which provides a huge potential for new opportunities for business development in real sectors of the economy. What yesterday seemed only an idea, today has become a conscious necessity. How to approach the digital transformation challenge? What problems need to be addressed? How much time do Russian companies have and whom should they take as partners? We will talk about these and other problems and ways of their solution with the German companies-members of the Russian-German Digitization Initiative (GRID), representatives of the Russian industry, regulators and other important stakeholders.
