Industry 4.0, IIoT & Co. for production companies

Industry 4.0, IIoT, Condition Monitoring, BigData, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Predictive Maintenance, Cloud Services and Edge Computing are just some of the topics surrounding digitalization which even small and medium-sized companies are increasingly having to consider. Against this background, developments in IT are continuously expanding the range of possibilities for optimizing production processes through the digitalization of machinery and equipment. However, getting started with digitalization is often difficult because the solutions can be highly diverse and overwhelming, the applications are generally complex and solutions can often only be put in place partnering with more than one supplier. The limited resources of companies make it difficult to be well informed in this area and to keep up-to-date with developments relating to digitalization of the shop floor.
