“With the advent of digital technologies, entire industries are transforming their business to become more agile,” stated Raj Datta, President and Chief Operating Officer, Software AG North America. “IoT provides enterprises with an avenue to differentiate themselves from their competitors, but only when organizations are able to seamlessly integrate their systems, data and processes.
