The industrial internet will substantially change the manufacturing industry in the coming years. "Industry 4.0" and the "Internet of Things" are strongly interdependent and driven by new digital business models that are based on using digital data across the whole product life cycle.

In the age of digitalization, business processes and the IT landscape must be prepared for new requirements. An integrated and holistic approach is necessary for a manufacturer to unlock what Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things offer.
