Industry 4.0 trends at Hannover Messe 2018
- IT and automation are influencing each other more and more, becoming inseparable.
- Retrofitting, the process of setting up communication between old and new systems, is becoming more challenging.
- Industry 4.0 requires the support of various technology platforms, for example combining .Net, cloud services, and PLC programming, all at the same time.
Polish developers are highly thought of
Meetings at b2fair, the matchmaking area of Hannover Messe, have showed that manufacturing companies from Switzerland, Germany, and Belgium are increasingly open to working with Polish engineers. Clients appreciate the top-end skills which they can find on the Polish market, and also the fact that such skills are made available in a short time. Moreover, thanks to the specifics of software development, it is often possible to organize cooperation in the field of Industry 4.0 in the nearshoring model and have large parts of the project done remotely.
