From the Hanover Fair 2014u0026#x27;s Digital Factory Hall

Sogeti Labs
April 14, 2014

Last week, I had the opportunity to visit the world’s biggest industrial fair in Hanover. All should definitely check out the Hannover Messe 2014 website to get a quick overview of what you have missed. The Netherlands – my home country – had mounted a high-power Partner Country showcase themed “Global Challenges, Smart Solutions.”  I myself was mainly attracted by the Digital Factory Hall, where SAP, Dassault Systemes, IBM, PTC and many others from all over the globe were intensely discussing their offering and the future. To pay homage to partner country Holland, Sogeti partner Dassault Systemes presented as an eyecatcher the roadster from their Dutch customer Donkervoort. Image and video hosting by TinyPic I learned so many new things during my stay in Hanover, I just wouldn’t know where to start. Luckily, there always is a lot of background material. For instance: 1 – Do you want to know what’s behind PTC’s acquisition of ThingWorx? 2  – Learn about the 10 predictions by Machina Research for the IoT and M2M world, e.g. the dawning realization of the evolution from M2M to IoT. 3 –  Provocative insight: the Big Data Analytics star will rise . . . and fall. The value of data is in having a monopoly on the right kind of data. Or in being able to use it in some clever way. But the market will come to realize that there isn’t much value in the actual analytic part of Big Data Analytics. Read all this and more in the first 2014 issue of the M2M Journal, and download the PDF.
