Cloud Meets Edge: Getting ready for meeting the demands of Industry 4.0 & IoTDiscovery Stage
In the context of industry 4.0, things are moving closer together that were previously considered rather separately. In this way, the value chain of a manufacturing operation, for instance, creates in parallel a new digital value chain. The main component of this digital value chain is the digital twin, which can provide a manufacturing company with valuable and helpful information and forecasts on the production process. However, this new, fully connected industry poses an immense challenge to Germany's data center landscape. Michael Nicolai (Vice President Sales IT Germany, Rittal) and Supriyo Bhattacharya (Business Development Lead, Innovo) discuss some of these challenges in their presentation and show how their two companies want to solve this challenge together with new, innovative approaches.
