Making businesses as smart & connected as the world we live in
“The concept of the ‘Intelligent Enterprise’ is about making businesses as smart and connected as the world that surrounds us. A sensor may seem like a small device, but when married with the troves of data and the ability to understand – and act – on it brings a big wave of technological innovation, creativity and new levels of intelligence to our world. To make the Intelligent Enterprise a reality, companies from across industries must collaborate on standard practices and guidelines enabling enterprises to gain greater operational visibility and reach higher levels of growth and productivity.” ~ Anders Gustafsson
