Creating an Internet of Things Application: How to connect your Machines


When companies develop digital business models or processes, multiple technical components are required for the implementation. Connecting machines and buildings with sensors, algorithms and databases as well as existing control and legacy systems is the basis for high performance industrial solutions. There’s a plethora of network technologies and providers available for connecting things.

In this workshop you will learn which connectivity technologies are best suited for which use cases, and how they can be implemented successfully. We will also build our own IoT application and look at real life examples.
