Industrial Transformation/ Industry 4.0


Successful integration of the right IoT solutions can help your manufacturing plant gain a competitive advantage. For most organisations, the biggest hurdle is knowing where to start. Collaborating with a partner in the IoT space can help you plan, implement and launch an IoT solution with minimal disruption and long-term returns on your investment.

In an uncertain economy, building the business case for new technologies like IoT can be a challenge. Explore how to take a fact-based approach to demonstrating the value of IoT and its impact on business growth.

To fully implement IoT systems, businesses need to establish an integrated fabric of devices, data, connections, processes and people. This requires that IoT systems be built on top of a solid technology platform including cloud, analytics, big data and mobile. Most important, security must be designed into IoT systems.

    An EU proposal to temporarily ban facial recognition technology has divided opinion in the upper echelons of the techsphere, with leaders from Google and Microsoft offering divergent responses to the proposed bill.

    Alphabet chief executive Sundar Pichai was quick to back the proposal, that leaked online this week, over concerns the technology could be misused. Meanwhile, Microsoft President and chief legal officer Brad Smith said an outright ban would be a step too far and called for a more measured response.
