New generation of digitized factories in Industry 4.0 is based on a combination of cyber-physical systems (CPS) and digital technologies, to provide an integrated and intelligent synergy in production process, linking the physical, digital and virtual world. Industry 4.0 uses production systems, CPS, CPPS, SCPS and robots in combination with digital technologies IoS, IoP, IoT, IIoT, IoE, CC and etc. The digital infrastructure of a country can be evaluated using different development indices, such as: IDI, EGDI, TII, OSI and etc. The paper is given of trend analyzes of development indices (DI) for using ICT and the Internet., EGDI and TII in Georgia for the period 2003 to 2018.
