Show Notes

Industry 4.0 projects are complex, by definition because of the number of hardware (and software) providers involved typically.

One project that tries to simplify this issue is the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance. The alliance brings together some of the largest software and hardware organisations in the Industry 4.0 ecosystem to discuss how they can work more closely together for the benefit of their customers.

To learn more, I invited Michael Riester of Endress + Hauser, and SAP's Ruediger Fritz to come on the podcast to talk about the Alliance. Both Michael and Ruediger are heavily involved with the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance. 

We had an excellent conversation and, as is often the case, I learned loads, I hope you do too...
