Industry 4.0-Related Digital Divide in Enterprises: An Analysis for The European Union-28
İşletmelerde Endüstri 4.0 ile İlgili Dijital Bölünme: Avrupa Birliği-28 Ülkeleri Üzerine Bir Analiz

Hayriye ATİK [1] , Fatma ÜNLÜ [2]


Digital divide has been measured using various indicators in the literature so far. In contrast from the literature, this paper addresses the digital divide within European Union member states according to Industry 4.0-related indicators that have been used for the first time in empirical literature. While Finland, the UK and Germany are among the countries with economic development levels above the EU average, Cyprus, Bulgaria, and Romania are among the countries that are below the Union average in terms of Industry 4.0-related development. It is clear that an Industry 4.0-related digital divide is observable within EU member countries. The European Union should try to decrease the digital gap between member countries by developing and supporting special Industry 4.0 policies, especially for members below the EU average. Therefore, the results of this article will help policy makers in the EU and in member countries.

Dijital bölünme literatürde genellikle farklı göstergeler kullanılarak ölçülmektedir. Literatürden farklı olarak, bu çalışma Endüstri 4.0 göstergelerine göre Avrupa Birliği’ne üye devletler arasındaki dijital bölünmeye işaret etmektedir. Finlandiya, İngiltere ve Almanya gibi AB ortalamasının üstünde ekonomik gelişmişlik performansına sahip olan ülkeler Endüstri 4.0 açısından yüksek performansa sahipken; G. Kıbrıs, Bulgaristan ve Romanya gibi ülkeler AB ortalamasının altında performans sergilemiştir. Bu durum AB üyesi ülkelerde dijital bölünmenin açık bir şekilde gözlemlendiğini göstermektedir. AB ülkeleri özellikle ortalamanın altında değerlere sahip olan üye ülkeler için özel politikalar geliştirerek ve bu politikaları destekleyerek üye ülkeler arasındaki dijital açığı kapatmalıdır. Bu çalışmanın sonuçları AB’deki politikacılara ve üye ülkelere yol gösterecektir.
