Traditional business models face an increasing pressure through digitization and new disruptive technologies. The traditional IT hierarchy that saw ERP software at the top of any common IT infrastructure is going to be replaced through a network of connected components, including applications, but also machines, single sensors and any data source that provides value.

Many organizations seek to further automate their production chain, driven by cost pressure and often a lack of skilled staff. One of the key challenges is a software-enabled communication between the different machines, triggered by human interaction, defined conditions or sensor data.
