Their extensive and global technology experience will greatly accelerate the process of platform development.” “With this cooperation, we will extend the spectrum of Industry 4.0 significantly”, commented Gordon Muehl, Vice President Industry 4.0 at Infosys. “Robots play a key role in realising the benefits of Industry 4.0. As a leader in robotics and a pioneer in Industry 4.0, KUKA brings invaluable expertise to this partnership.” The name connyun is comprised from the English word “connect” and “yun”, the Chinese term for cloud.
