Additionally, Kepware’s Ole Borgbjerg, Managing Director, Europe, will join the Dell Think Tank conversation titled “IT/OT Convergence – Industry 4.0: Bridging the Gaps” on April 26 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Moderated by Founder/CEO of The Manufacturing Connection Gary Mintchell, the Think Tank roundtable discussion will explore the meaning of Industry 4.0 for individual businesses and job functions, opportunities and challenges presented by the convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT), and visions of the future of IoT on the factory floor.

“Forward thinking businesses are increasingly utilizing IoT and Big Data to address their top operational challenges,” said Erik Dellinger, Product Manager, IoT and Big Data Solutions at Kepware. “We’re excited to join Dell at HANNOVER MESSE this year to show attendees how industrial companies can maximize efficiencies and bridge the IT/OT gap—bringing shop floor data to boardroom decision-making.”
