MesserSoft’s main goal was to build a software solution for the future — the fourth industrial revolution. Industrial Revolution 4.0 is the trend toward automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies and processes, which include cyber-physical systems (CPS), the internet of things (IoT), industrial internet of things (IIOT), cloud computing, cognitive computing, and artificial intelligence (AI).
