Originally built in 1915 as a coal storage facility for the Royal Bavarian Railways and used for that purpose until 1995, the conversion of the venue into an extraordinary event location began in autumn 2015. The architecturally successful combination of historic roots and modern charm is a testimony of the deep and exceptional transformation we are going through.
Smart sensors are enabling Things to “feel”, learn, and execute intelligent actions, and a new era nourished by artificial intelligence is taking shape. By the year 2020, it is estimated that the world market volume for IoT will grow more than fivefold and reach 21.2 billion euros.
Specialists and executives from industrial companies, IT enterprises, and start-ups are invited to join the summit for business and technology-oriented discussions. Wibu-Systems has been at the forefront of monetizing this new technology wave by implementing secure licensing systems that apply proven scalable and flexible business models to the industrial realm.
At 10.30 am, with his lecture about Software Protection and Licensing for Cyber-Physical Systems, Thomas Warnken, Key Account Manager at Wibu-Systems, will dive into the theme of cyber security. With Industrie 4.0, the IT world and the world of machine tools are blending. The marriage between IT and security dates back to the early 1990s and has long been proven in the field. For machine and plant builders, the topic of know-how protection applied to industrial controls is relatively new. By transferring decades of experience in the IT world, industrial players can benefit immediately from the best practices and the technologies already available and prevent product, device, and plant counterfeiting on the spot. Additionally, they can also adopt subscription and feature-on-demand licensing models with cyber-physical systems and replicate the same exponential business growth IT vendors have been seeing over recent years.
