Industry 4.0 Platform: MES, IIoT, Analytics or All of the Above?

At a time when the application of IoT in manufacturing environments is in full swing, and growing at a much higher rate than any other type of application, we can see the first signs that, with the currently available approaches, manufacturers will not achieve the expected returns. As the dust settles, the industrial world is realizing what other markets that have turned to analytics have realized long ago.

In this webinar, Francisco Almada Lobo, will share valuable insights on how to:

  • Take real advantage of the wealth of data that the IoT generates, semantic models, contextual information, data enrichment processes and platform sharing are an absolute must.
  • Unlock the true potential that MES and IoT have to simultaneously control processes, guarantee visibility and traceability, and generate true manufacturing insights.
  • Only a combined platform will allow manufacturers to succeed in the Industry 4.0 competitive context.
