Adapt or die: Why Europe’s business must embrace Industry 4.0 by Giuliano Liguori

“Europe’s car industry was rocked by some alarming news this week: in the next three years, one of the continent’s iconic brands is expected to go out of business. That, at least, is the finding of a newly published study of over 300 automotive industry leaders from France, Germany, Italy and the UK. The reason, according to over two-thirds of respondents to a survey by Protolabs, was the growing pressure to innovate and to invest in R&D. Major carmakers and suppliers in the report – the likes of BMW, Daimler, JLR, Magneti Marelli, Volkswagen and Williams F1 – suggested that even the largest European behemoths may struggle to adapt to today’s environment of growing digital processes.”

Why APIs are the key to effective UK government digital transformation by Ian Fairclough

“The Government Digital Service (GDS) has made significant progress on making public services better through more effective use of digital technology and data. However, a recent parliamentary report warns of a loss of momentum when it comes to its implementation, due in part to persistent challenges around data sharing and legacy systems.As the GDS works to regain the initiative and bring citizens and the public sector closer together, an effective API strategy will be critical, which is perhaps why the GDS recently unveiled a new API Catalogue. When implemented effectively, APIs can expose useful data and package it up for reuse across central and local government systems to improve citizen experiences, deliver public services more effectively, and maximise the use of taxpayers’ money.”
