The plan enables customers to achieve a transformation in their businesses. By simplifying their business processes, the companies will be able to speed up decision making and respond promptly to swift changes in the market environment. Also, it is expected that this company will be able to build strong relationships with customers and partner companies in various fields by working closely with them to co-create IIoT technology solutions that deliver new forms of value.
