While it was difficult to imagine just a few years ago, there is no stopping it today: The digital transformation, driven by the idea of IoT and Industry 4.0.
Even though both concepts were conceived more than a decade ago, they still form the basis of fundamental digital innovations today. Cloud technologies in particular are becoming increasingly important in the context of information technology (IT) and operating technology (OT), while at the same time IT and OT are merging. This
is due to the growing trend of distributed intelligence down to the sensor level. The diverse possibilities for connectivity generate exponential growth in data volumes. With the spread of Ethernet and web standards as well as increasing virtualization, traditional IT is moving even closer to industry and manufacturing.
