inspect news 05 2017


Dear Readers,

The computer technology market changes. This shows the current sales figures from Microsoft. The company loses significantly in the conventional PC area, but has two driving horses that are growing rapidly: Office 365 and Azure. The Office 365 is available on all platforms, is based on a subscription model and stores its data in the cloud. Obviously, this is the pulse of time. Azure, the cloud interface, is one of the foundations for the Internet of Things / Industry 4.0. This division has grown by 93 per cent. A clear indication of the importance of industrial 4.0 applications in 2017.
