Share experiences with other users now

Learn from the best practices of other companies and exchange ideas about their applications in the field of digitalization, especially IIoT and IoT solutions and technologies. Share your own experiences to drive the solutions you are working on. Generate new ideas by engaging with the community and receive feedback for your use cases, such as predictive quality and predictive maintenance.

Discuss topics such as asset condition monitoring, AI-based root cause analysis and the use of AI in machines. Share your knowledge about the implementation and use of the Asset Administration Shell (AAS), the global technical implementation of the digital twin and many other topics. You are also welcome to contribute your expertise and find new use cases and business cases.

The focus is on the exchange of ideas and experiences. Share your project experience from the initial idea to productive implementation and share on tips in various areas. Network with similar companies in our forum to see how they overcome challenges. You can also discuss topics such as cross-industry data exchange, anomaly detection, brownfield machine connection and much more.

Share your valuable experience of how successfully you use machine and plant data. Seek the exchange with other users to share ideas and develop them further. Contribute your knowledge to our user group and benefit from the efficient and digital exchange of experience and networking.

Look for an exchange on the digitalization of production or generation plants, including very special plants and the associated requirements. Benefit from digitalization use cases that have already been implemented and discuss the potential and challenges of data-driven production, logistics, service & aftersales, supply chain and buildings. Network cross-functionally on topics related to infrastructure and use cases in the field of IoT, such as LoRaWAN networks and the integration of diverse machines and smart equipment in existing shopfloors.

Learn how other companies are managing their digital transformation and share your knowledge about your journey with the Digital Twin. Participate in the exchange of experiences in our community, including topics such as 5G sensor data transmission, standardized data availability, and NIS2 regulations in the brownfield. Take the opportunity to find out about and exchange information on process support with IIoT data, smart measurement technology and self-service options.

What use cases are there on the market and which have already proven themselves? In our network, we mainly focus on use cases that have already proven successful in practice in order to further develop and scale them. We share these valuable findings with you via our database.

Finding the right technology for your needs can take a lot of time. In addition, it is not always easy to seamlessly integrate a new technology into your existing structure or to expand it. Thanks to the extensive experience we have gained from thousands of projects in our network, we are very familiar with both use case-specific and non-specific requirements in the IT and OT areas. We have identified the ideal technologies and solutions for various use cases. We would like to share this specialized knowledge with you in order to make your digitalization a success. Discover the technologies that suit you!

Each use case has already been successfully implemented in a similar form. Nobody should have to start their project from scratch. We are happy to bring you together with experts and companies that have already successfully implemented IoT solutions. Use their experience and successful projects to your advantage.
