Hannover Messe 2015 brings the Internet of Things (IoT) to life, and the potential for manufacturing businesses cannot be overstated.
The world of design is an exciting place to be. And for me, to be a part of the technology world bringing forward new innovations for designers themselves is especially rewarding. What they can do now was simply not possible when I was an engineer years ago.
It’s the time of year again, when industry leaders from around the world pack their bags and travel to Hannover, Germany from April 13-17 for one of the world’s largest industrial fairs of the year: Hannover Messe 2015. We are especially looking forward to this year’s event because Microsoft will have a significant presence at the event, with many exciting activities and surprises planned for you!
In today’s mobile-first world, cloud technology on our mobile devices has clearly transformed our personal lives. On the business side of things, a recent Harvard Business Review study sponsored by Microsoft, where manufacturers were among the top three industry respondents, found that cloud, mobile, big data and social technologies are also having a positive impact.
Earlier this week, I held a webcast with our manufacturing customers to share ideas about how they can better design for customers’ needs. While this has always been a priority for product-driven enterprises, it’s much easier said than done, and especially so in today’s digitally-connected world.
