In recent years, we have heard a lot of words about Industry 4.0, Digital Transformation, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, and many articles have been written about this issue.
Industry 4.0 Components
By calling Industry 4.0 as a Digital Transformation, we can list the most basic components of this transformation as follows:
- Sensors and Smart Machines
- High-Speed internet connection
- Datacenter and Cloud Computing
- Software and Reporting Tools
Although most essential components of digital conversion are hardware products; software is essential for manipulating, classifying and interpreting all of these hardware in harmony or the data they produce.
When it comes to the digital transformation of corporations, Smart factories are saying that we don’t even need to illuminate because we find our way with sensors, and the hardware products that are necessary for dark factories in new terms are already manufactured and manufactured by major equipment, machine manufacturers.
The fact that the hardware needs can be solved to a great extent leads to the need for the correct operation of the hardware, the customization for each company, the entry, and the management of data sets. After the collected data is hosted on the cloud servers with high capacity and speed, it is necessary to process the required software in order to be used in workflows and decision mechanisms.
The Heart of Digital Transformation
As you can see, the software is the instrument that makes all components work together, therefore the heart of Digital Transformation is software.
