On this, the 8th episode of the Digital Supply Chain series themed on Industry 4.0, I wanted to have a chat with Nils Herzberg. Nils is the Global Head of Strategic Partnerships and Industry 4.0 for Digital Supply Chain at SAP. Why did I want to talk with Nils? Well, several of the previous Industry 4.0 episodes have alluded to the importance of partnerships and the ecosystem, so I thought why not have a chat with the man in charge of those partnerships to get his take on the subject. Nils generously agreed to come on the show, and we had a great chat about the ecosystem, about organizations like the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance, and also the absolute requirement for globally agreed standards - listen for yourselves, and let me know what you think. And if you want to know more about any of SAP's Digital Supply Chain solutions, head on over to and if you liked this show, please don't forget to rate and/or review it. It makes a big difference to help new people discover it. Thanks. And remember, stay healthy, stay safe, stay sane!
