This is an important milestone that is not easy to achieve. This confirms the intensive cooperation between the two companies in the market. For our (existing) customers, this will definitely offer added value for solutions to issues related to sustainability, digitization and electrification.

I look forward to giving further substance to this.”

Successful ICT Group Water Congress

On 14 November, ICT Group organised the annual ICT Group Water Congress. We look back on a great day where we were inspired by presentations from both inside and outside the water domain.

ICT Group Water Congress, the programme is complete

With just under a month to go, the ICT Group Water Congress is already getting close. The full programme has been finalised and we are happy to share this with you.

During this conference, the speakers are not only from the water domain, but also from other domains such as industry. The presentations offer a source of inspiration where we look at what we can learn from each other’s experiences and which issues are interesting for you to take back to your own organisation. After all, the digital journey we are making together is not limited to the water domain and experiences elsewhere can certainly also apply to your organisation.

The detailed programme with a summary for each presentation can be found on the event page:

LVT food magazine reports about I/O.nite

In the current issue of the magazine LVT Lebensmittel Industrie, our Technical Director Jörg Schiller talks about how you can significantly increase your competitiveness thanks to IoT and in particular our solution I/O.nite.

In an IoT platform, dependencies can be graphically described very easily with the help of a rule engine. This provides a technology that allows recommendations for action to be derived from situations even without in-depth IT know-how. This is a great advantage for companies that want to manage their production facilities or real estate quickly and efficiently.
