Leading the World to Business 4.0™

As a Strategic Partner to the World Economic Forum (WEF), Tata Consultancy Services has engaged in and supported causes and platforms that have helped business thrive and strived to build a stronger, collaborative and sustainable planet. In the 2020 edition, we will be bringing voice to the role that digital technology has to play in creating a better world – something we call Business 4.0™.

Business 4.0™

The Business 4.0™ Framework helps companies leverage digital technologies to further their growth and transformation agendas during the fourth industrial revolution. Business 4.0™ is the amalgamation of business and technology. It requires a shift in mindset from one of optimising scarcity to harnessing an abundance of resources, capital and talent. And it is characterised by an ability to mass personalize, actively leverage ecosystems and embrace risk in delivering exponential growth.
