Modernizing the Manufacturing Industry with Kafka and MQTT

Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing are driving the manufacturing industry to modernize their software infrastructure. The current infrastructure is costly to maintain, creates barriers to sharing data, difficult to integrate with other systems and is limiting corporations to new opportunities promised by Industry 4.0. A key challenge to modernizing a manufacturing infrastructure is how do you integrate old existing systems with new modern systems. Apache Kafka and MQTT are unique positioned to provide the core technology to enable modernization of the manufacturing industry.

This session will look at the unique business drivers for modernizing the manufacturing industry and how MQTT and Kafka can help make it a reality.
