Connected Industry

“As many other areas of our everyday lives, the Internet of Things is also becoming prevalent in industry, where it connects real and virtual worlds of production. The fusion of these two worlds via the Internet enables manufacturers to connect all machines, products and systems involved in the production process.” – Bosch Software Innovations GmbH
The Industrial Internet of Things or Industry 4.0 heralds an era of unlimited potential to change the industrial landscape. Will this become the age of ultimate industrial automation? What efficiencies and new opportunities can be realised as a result? How can the complexities be understood and challenges overcome? In these sessions we explore how the IoT and M2M Technologies are impacting existing industry value chains, business models and workforces, and what actions business leaders must take to ensure long-term success and real return on investment.
