The development of data science and its methodologies are in the center of future’s lean, automation-driven, manufacturing paradigm referred to as Manufacturing 4.0.

Tangible, production facility investments usually have a planned lifetime of at least 20 years giving you time to adapt with the technology whereas the life of data science technologies is usually a lot less.
For example, on-premises database solutions are still in a steady shift towards cloud computing and produc-tion critical is increasingly sold as a service instead of “fixed” licenses. This change is ongoing whether your ICT-department personnel (with their degrees dated in the 1990s) like it or not.
