Out of curiosity to explore the new features of D2 4.6, I upgraded one of our D2 4.5 projects a few weeks ago. In this blog post I explain the new features, the upgrade, as well as our experiences with the new version of D2.

A company’s change from solely being a product manufacturer to also becoming a service provider is a potential application of digital transformation. In order to provide services aimed at both individuals and target groups, companies need to collect user-, application-, and product-driven data from the real world as a basis, then submit this data to further analytic processing.
Companies can now bridge the gap between the real world and the digital world using the mechanisms and principles of the Internet of Things (IoT) or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT or Industry 4.0). Standardized device networking and individual opportunities for interaction are now available for a wide range of uses – they open up new possibilities and expand fields of business.
