Pisa, 26 September 2023 – Zerynth, a leader in Industrial IoT solutions for manufacturing companies, hosted the Zerynth Connect event in Pisa on September 21st. The conference delved into the theme of Industry 5.0, highlighting the importance of digitalization, business sustainability, and the key role of humans in an era of increasingly integrated business processes.

New technologies enable businesses to become more digitalized and sustainable through the integration of IoT and AI tools that can collect real-time data and facilitate informed decision-making based on in-depth analysis. This approach allows for improved operational efficiency, optimized production processes, and waste reduction, all while promoting corporate sustainability.

The event brought together over 120 professionals from leading Italian companies, who are key players in the digital 5.0 transition, enabling the paradigm shift, especially in discrete and process manufacturing.

“With great enthusiasm, we had the privilege of gathering an important representation of Italian manufacturing companies in the extraordinary setting of Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa. This event underlines, in a tangible way, the fundamental role that digital technologies play in a constantly evolving industry ,” says Gabriele Montelisciani CEO of Zerynth. “The growing need for data and process integration becomes even more important in this era of profound change, where the development of a resilient and sustainable industry is pivotal. Digitalization is therefore becoming crucial for businesses, and the role of humans at the center of this transition is essential because without data, knowledge cannot be acquired, and without knowledge, informed decisions cannot be made.”
