Industry 4.0 is set to revolutionize the manufacturing industry. The potential for more flexible manufacturing, more efficient processes and lower costs are the driving factors behind the investment in Industry 4.0 solutions. A key part of creating successful Industry 4.0 solutions will be software on the factory floor and in the cloud.
In this talk, we will introduce how open source software has become a trusted source of technology for the enterprise IT software industry and how the Eclipse IoT open source community and other open source communities are now ready to provide production ready technology for the manufacturing industry and Industry 4.0. Open source software will provide the key building blocks that will promote the interoperability and flexibility required by Industry 4.0 solutions.
