iFAKT hosts conference about predictive ERP in the era of industry 4.0

Convergence of Big Data and IoT for improved scheduling and production planning

In the context of the Digital Transformation, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a new data source to perform Big Data Analytics. Furthermore, the estimates indicate that there will be a significant growth of up to 200 billion connected devices by 2020. The linkage between Big Data Analytics and IoT creates improvement opportunities for the industry as it allows the production systems to be adapted to a dynamic manufacturing environment.
However, these improvements are accompanied by challenges. Within this context, iFAKT would like to present and discuss existing solutions that improve the predictive capability of ERP systems in the era of Industry 4.0. Alongside representatives of the companies Microsoft, Airbus and iFAKT, researchers from GDR MACS will share their experience.

This sounds interesting to you?
We would be pleased to welcome you to our conference!
