This blog post discusses the benefits of a Digital Twin in Industrial IoT (IIoT) and its relation to Apache Kafka. Kafka is often used as a central event streaming platform to build a scalable and reliable digital twin for real-time streaming sensor data.
In November 2019, I attended the SPS Conference in Nuremberg. This is one of the most important events about Industrial IoT (IIoT). Vendors and attendees from all over the world fly in to make business and discuss new products. Hotel prices in this region go up from usually 80-100€ to over 300€ per night. Germany is still known for its excellent engineering and manufacturing industry. German companies drive a lot of innovation and standardization around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0.
