2-day Workshop for your Industry 4.0 projects

netFIELD.io – Get YOUR digitization projects started!

Info: The Workshop will be held in German

Industry 4.0 and the digitalization of factories have been a driving force for a significant transformation in numerous industries and companies for quite some time now. From start-ups and highly specialized engineering firms to globally operating corporations: new technologies, applications and standards are continually stirring up the market.
Today, many questions are no longer about the "why", but the "how" when it comes to implementing a digitalization project: How do you approach a digitalization project and how do you get the data you need to solve a specific problem? How do you make your system that has been running for 25 years even more efficient, since a whole new build is simply not an option?

Device management as a key area of focus for your success

Despite promising results, many prototypes and pilot projects ultimately fail due to their implementation into serial production. There are different reasons for this. Scaling costs for digitalization projects can skyrocket quickly, because development work is costly and involves the cooperation of many different experts from very different fields.
We've recognized that device management is a pivotal point for the success or failure of Industry 4.0 projects. In our 2-day workshop, you'll learn about best-practices IoT concepts based on Hilscher's netFIELD operating system and the netFIELD.io cloud platform. These include data collection, inter-container messaging, cloud communication, and deployment mechanisms. On the second day, we'll apply the skills together that we learned using the netFIELD Compact X8M gateway and the netFIELD.io platform.



An overview of the topics covered in the workshop:
  • Local device management with netFIELD OS
  • Remote device management with netFIELD.io
  • Business integration with the netFIELD.io platform
  • Device-to-cloud messaging
  • Cloud-to-device messaging
  • Application deployment
  • Device manager extension
