Opening Keynote at DTIM 2017

I feel privileged to open the Disruptive Technologies & Innovation Foresight Minds with a keynote about “Embracing Industrial Internet of Thing (IIoT) technologies”.

I will focus on

  • What are the challenges and impacts while living in the “age of digitization” of manufacturing?
  • How to leverage existing technologies and investments?
  • How to ensure an IIoT-enabled product development?

This will, of course, cover the special challenges of SMBs or in German “Mittelstand”.

You will find my presentation on this page afterwards.
