Hear from industry leaders at Europe’s leading and most comprehensive IIoT Event

Now in its 3rd year, the annual Internet of Manufacturing Germany is Europe’s leading event for the fast growing and business critical Industrial Internet of Things sector. With over half of all production processes now using IoT and manufacturers planning to embed smart devices or intelligence into products, IoT is the route to increased productivity and profitability.

Germany is the birthplace of the Industrie 4.0 initiative with its strong manufacturing sector, from family run Mittelstand companies to global automotive companies. To really take off and reach their potential, manufacturers now need a roadmap to implement IoT. Take a look at the agenda click here.

IoT platform selection for the manufacturing industry

Enterprises in the manufacturing sector are selecting IoT data and device management platforms - sometimes called application enablement platforms (AEPs) - that provide best-in-class capabilities.

MachNation has created an IoT platform test and comparison lab called MIT-E to provide enterprises with benchmark data of platform capabilities based on hands-on tests of these AEPs.

The best IoT platforms for the manufacturing sector are those that provide rich edge capabilities to support IoT devices and data at scale. Read MachNation’s report to see some of the benchmark data from MachNation's MIT-E and learn more about the key requirements of manufacturing sector enterprises for selecting a leading IoT platform.
