At Hannover Messe 2016, the world’s largest industrial technology fair, in Germany, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella gave a keynote address. During his keynote, Satya spoke about how digital transformation is remaking companies and their factories, bringing the intersection of manufacturing and technology even closer.
