The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with its connected always-on devices emits massive data streams and information, but manufacturers have not yet adapted. This mismatch led us to create a visionary solution for industrial analytics. With Datatroniq manufacturers can now leverage data-driven strategies to innovate, compete, and capture value by delivering analytical insights that are relevant, proactive, and predictive. We are on a mission to make the Industrial Internet of Things more intelligent, one business transformation after another.
