- how the Open Telekom Cloud enables the necessary scalable, data-protection compliant, and secure hosting.
Quiet whirring in the air. A drone slowly circles the smokestack of an industrial plant and takes razor-sharp images of the condition of the plant. Is the surface intact? Are there already cracks or even holes in the material? In real time, the drone sends the 360-degree view to the tablet of the service technician, who immediately initiates the necessary maintenance measures. The whole thing is monitored by the medium-sized plant manufacturer and its service partner T-Systems. However, it is all purely virtual, taking place in a digital showroom: because the drone and the service technician do not really exist, they are only a 3D projection in T-Systems’ virtual innovation center. Here, virtual reality (VR) vividly shows the plant engineering company how its service processes can be digitalized and thus also accelerated.
