Automation without software? Unthinkable. Smart grids without IT? Impossible. Industry 4.0 is a software-driven environment – marked by machine-to-machine communication and an increasingly complex network – all with the goal of making industrial processes more responsive, efficient, and flexible.
The industrial world is swiftly changing – engineers, developers, production planners and production specialists, maintenance technicians, and service providers need to digitalize their processes. An unbroken digital value-adding chain is an essential prerequisite for staying afloat in today’s dynamic manufacturing environment.
