ADAMOS, a new strategic alliance for machine and plant engineering, is going to take the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and launch it into new dimensions.
Our world is growing smaller every day. Nearly everything is getting connected to the digital world. Industrial digital machines are no exception; the Internet of Things has become a decisive competitive edge for the production industry. The race to gain data sovereignty demands a faster pace of innovation. At the same time, the Internet of Things demands a high level of investment, excellent specialists and the command of new technologies.
This is where a new cross-sectoral cooperation takes hold and offers the machine building industry many advantages: ADAMOS, which stands for ADAptive Manufacturing Open Solutions, is a joint venture by world market leaders DMG MORI, Dürr, ZEISS, ASM and Software AG. This strategic alliance addresses the opportunities the Industrial Internet of Things offers.
ADAMOS will develop new IIoT applications for machine building companies, which will be customized and “white-labeled” for their end users. Real-time analytics, Big Data technologies and API management – these are only a few of many areas on which ADAMOS apps are designed. The open IIoT platform ADAMOS brings together the most up-to-date IT technology and industry knowledge. It enables engineering companies to offer tried and tested solutions for digitally networked production to their customers with little effort. Machine tool builders, as well as their suppliers and customers, will benefit from this platform service that offers data autonomy and access to leading software solutions.
This is a game-changer, especially for small- and medium-sized enterprises. With ADAMOS, they get the opportunity to be part of the digital value chain, fast and fully customized to their business needs and strengths. Machine building customers obtain machines and software solutions from the same source and have sovereignty over their data. This secures the leading position of machine-building companies in the digital era.
Germany’s first alliance of well-known industrial and software companies establishes ADAMOS as the global standard for the machine and plant building industries and will attract other machine building enterprises to become partners. Software AG supplies the technological core for ADAMOS with its IoT and Digital Platform technologies. Software AG’s leadership and digital expertise in this area is based on a total investment of more than one billion euros. Software AG’s industry neutrality and global presence, combined with the know-how of leading machine and plant builders worldwide form the foundation of ADAMOS.
The jointly developed ADAMOS platform will be available worldwide as of 1 October 2017.
