To the question what digitization means to industrial businesses, there are as many answers as there are perspectives to the topic. It does not matter if you are talking about Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet or Internet of Things – connecting processes and systems will shape the markets of the future. Of that fact everyone is aware, yet many have difficulties with the implementation.

Why is that? Because the path to the digital factory can only lead to its goal, when engineers, constructors, developers and IT experts work together in one team. This is where INDUSTRY OF THINGS comes in. We bring IT and industry experts together and enable the interdisciplinary exchange, irrespective of business-, sector- and know-how boarders. We offer the platform for this exchange. On INDUSTRY OF THINGS, therefore, not only more than 40 editors report about current developments of the Internet of Things and the industry, but also experts, whose proximity to practice opens up new perspectives of applications, technologies, or IT security, but also of political and contemporary topics. Become a part of this team as well and sign up to our newsletter, comment on articles or publish your own one.
