Using Data to Create Value
Four developments significantly impact businesses today: The ubiquitous social networking of individuals, the exponentially increasing interconnectedness of physical objects, new software and IT architectures, and high-speed data transmission. These complex interrelationships in logistics, production, services, mobility and buildings are made tangible and explorable in the Smart Logistics Cluster, enabling companies and institutions to participate in the potential of digitization in the best possible way while undergoing their own successful digital transformation.
