The aim of the research is to provide a sample data and analysis to present the state of digitalization in the Baltic sea region. A matrix contains seven operation fields and ten services and technologies mapped available digital services in six countries like Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland. A comparison analysis describes the level of digitalization strength and weakness areas by country in Baltic sea region. Support structure analysis is a reference to select the suitable partner to enhance the level of digitalization in countries. The results show that there are differences in the strength and weakness areas in Baltic sea region. Further the strength areas of each country are compared to weakness areas of digitalization to develop a roadmap to improve the readiness to implement and use Industry 4.0 functionality and tools.
