With Industrie 4.0 and the Internet of Things, companies are now truly facing a new Industrial Revolution. Application scenarios like Smart Home, self-driving cars or fridges that go shopping online are no longer the stuff of science fiction. The continual miniaturisation of sensor and communication technology as well as the increasing spread of cloud services are producing a set of fundamentally new concepts and business models.
Confronted with these developments, companies are being forced to scrutinise their business models, products and services. Otherwise, even today’s market leaders are threatened with being downgraded to generic suppliers in the medium term. As market trends evolve ever more rapidly, it is therefore vital to identify and integrate them into business without endangering the stability of the enterprise. Thanks to LEXTA’s long experience and expertise gained in IT management consultancy, we are well aware of the associated challenges and conflicting goals.

Drawing on our long history of market monitoring and experience, we will work with you to develop the right infrastructure and service architecture for your IoT implementation.
