Most manufacturers don’t realize how much can be gained (and saved!) through better integration of their IT systems, such as ERP or WMS, and their OT Systems, such as MES or LIMS. The convergence of these two system types is the critical base for Smart Manufacturing/Industrie 4.0 initiatives which yield enormous benefits – yet only some are taking advantage of this to the fullest.

Software AG’s webMethods Integration Platform is used by the world’s largest manufacturers to connect the most complex IT and OT systems. Join this webinar and learn how it can help you save tens of millions and increase operational efficiency.

Learn How to Achieve:

  • Faster response times and decision making based on better data
  • Quicker integration of SAP with diverse manufacturing technologies
  • Enterprise-wide visibility into processes across many systems
