The key topic of the TIM 4.0 User Conference 2014 was the modern publication on multimedia channels with increasing demands on current and future solutions. Many contributions from customers, partners and of course from FCT AG itself brought this issue into swing and the innovative spirit was noticed over these two days. Due to constructive and innovative exchange between users and developers new ideas were formed. Therefore, one important aspect was achieved during the course of this event at Lake Constance: To combine networking, creative exchange, experience of new things with personal experiences and lessons learned in a pleasant atmosphere.
Topics as Information Architecture and DITA of Prof. Sissi Closs or Industry 4.0 and Product Information Management of Dr. Walter Fischer and Rainer Börsig identified new ideas and patterns. The presentations performed by our customers DOKA, Robatech and Coperion shown the large variety of spans from the automation up to modern information portals realized with TIM.
