April showers brings May flowers but if you are in Germany in late April, Hannover Messe is the breeding ground for innovation in the global manufacturing industry. HM is the largest Manufacturing show in Europe and due to the advancements that are being made with Industrie 4.0 and Industrial IoT around the world, this is the show to learn where the industry is heading.

This year Cisco will have a large presence at Hannover Messe 2017 and we invite you to see how we are helping customers in the manufacturing industry and working with leading partners to deliver real business outcomes.

We will be highlighting how ‘There’s never been a better time to securely digitize manufacturing’ and the key pieces on how to do it:

  1. Secure Connected Factory: how to enable a Digital Factory and how we help customers move data from sensors to data analytics areas so they are able to convert the data into intelligence.
  2. Secure Connected Assets and Supply Chain: how to integrate islands of automation including better managing energy consumption in factories. You can react to trends and manage your overall operations where we are developing supply chain hubs and interaction points to ensure communications are available across a supply chain.
  3. Secure Connected Worker: how to leverage communications, Collaboration, and our industry leading communications platform to allow industrial customers to react and collaborate when needs occur.

We will be working with our industry partners Rockwell Automation, Intel, Panduit, and NetApp, as well as many others to highlight that Industrie 4.0 is not something that can be achieved with one vendor, but with multiple partners that cross both the operational technology and typical IT departments as well.

I look forward to seeing you in Hannover as we work through digital transformation together at our booth located in Hall 8.0, Stand C13.
