Connectivity – a threat to 4IR?

Connectivity – a threat to 4IR?

As South Africa develops and deepens its rapidly growing relationship with digital transformation, there remains one irrefutable, essential and pressing truth: connectivity is the gateway to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

It was, along with the country’s need for a sustainable and consistent power supply, a dominant theme across all of the panels at the recent annual Directors Event futured by BCX. A gathering of some of the sharpest minds from business and society, ‘South Africa’s biggest board meeting’, as it is known, was held virtually for the first time, demonstrating and emphasising the point that without a wider and stronger access to the internet, the take-up of 4IR in this country will face a battle.
