New information technologies such as Internet of Things, predictive analytics, wireless, additive manufacturing, cloud computing, mobility, and 3D visualization are beginning to disrupt and radically change the way industrial enterprises do business. Departing from the characteristic industry conservatism, leading companies now recognize that they must embrace new information and automation technologies to maintain a competitive edge.
Information and automation technologies will play a greater role in the production process than in the past. The goal is to increase productivity, flexibility, and responsiveness by automating all industrial processes that don't require human intervention and empowering humans with the timely, in-context information they need to improve performance on the plant or factory floor and manage the business.
