Building IIoT Ecosystems: gaps, success factors and future scenarios

The manufacturing framework is changing rapidly: starting from self-contained systems and monolithic infrastructures, many companies are facing the challenge to transform the backbone of their value chain to a new industrial IoT approach. Frontrunners are already focusing on the next level, which is taking shape in Open Digital IIoT Systems. 

Gernot Schaefer, Vice President at ROI-EFESO, will describe the technological and organizational effects of this development at GBR’s FutureTechWorX (FTWorX) from 8th to 9th March 2021. In the lecture and workshops, ROI-EFESO take place with market insights, best practices and expert advices about the IIoT stack as backbone for a smart value chain. 

Join the event, discuss and get inspirations how to transform manufacturing with new technologies – and how to boost business by end-to-end digitalization in new IIoT Ecosystems.
