The scope of Africa Automation Fair 2017 has evolved with the inclusion of the Industry 4.0 / industrial internet of things (IIoT), an exciting outcome of the digital revolution that is changing the way we live and work. Many organisations already focus on how to benefit from it, but extracting maximum value requires a big data approach. AAF 2017 will be the platform where industrial automation and this digital revolution converge; and where operations technology and information technology blend together to become more intelligent.
Further expanding on the theme of the Fourth Industrial Revolutions, Africa Automation Fair 2017 will co-located the Connected Industries conference, the first conference of its kind in Africa. The conference offers a comprehensive progamme, looking at the global economic impact of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” on the South African Economy as well as looking at the technology behind the revolution and the impact it will have on efficiency and quality, as well as infrastructural requirements.
Day 3 of the conference moves to the floor of Africa Automation Fair where the Industrie 4.0 / IIoT exhibitors will be doing supplier/vendor presentations in the 3 theatres on the floor of the exhibition.
