The German ICT market is further on the rise – especially in the segment software. In its recently published economic forecast German high-tech association Bitkom even declared the rise of its growth forecast by 0.4 percent to 1.9 percent. That means a turnover of 156 billion Euros for the whole market in 2015.
A recent survey by BITKOM shows that "Industry 4.0" is one of the trend topics in 2015. This creates huge demands regarding IT security and Big Data and therefore is a great chance to enter a new market.
For the German IT market, Industry 4.0 is a new trend topic of the year 2015. Industry 4.0 promotes the computerization of the manufacturing industry. The goal is the intelligent factory (Smart Factory), which is characterized by adaptability, resource efficiency and ergonomics as well as the integration of customers and business partners in business and value processes. It includes adopting the Internet-of-Things (IoT) for manufacturing plants and processes.
In a recent trend survey by the German high-tech association BITKOM, "Industry 4.0" was ranked on position 4 with 42 percent of the questioned companies naming the topic as very relevant for them. This is a massive improvement compared to last year's result when the topic just emerged on position 10 with 22 percent of mentions.
