"No. 1 resource for the manufacturing industry will be data instead of oil.”
Jack Ma, Alibaba
Manufacturing companies are increasingly joining Telcos, Banks and retailers to the digital world – cross-linking physical and cyber world. The “Internet of Things” (IoT) opens the gate to a flood of new data, which needs to be professionally collected, condensed and made available. The current industrial revolution called “Industry 4.0” is turning those into new insights and new business models. It is generating benefits exactly from the bridge between physical and virtual layers – and the vital connecting element here is professional IT knowledge and experience.
