Global manufacturer of machines for the automotive sector Index Werke recently rolled out a new Industry 4.0 powered platform for their customers called iXworld (using SAP Industry 4.0 solutions!).
To hear more about this innovative digital transformation, I invited Index' iXworld Product Manager Katharina Piesche to come on the podcast to tell us more about it.
