umati has new partner IndustryApps GmbH

IndustryApps is now part of the umati community

What expect­a­tions do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?

“When we came across the umati ini­ti­at­ive, we were abso­lutely delighted, as it is help­ing to raise aware­ness about the neces­sity of cre­at­ing open stand­ards. Espe­cially the machine build­ing and tool mak­ing industry can bene­fit a lot, as it cre­ates a com­pet­it­ive advant­age not only in the hard­ware area but also in the area of inter­con­nectiv­ity, help­ing a cus­tom­er to bene­fit eas­ily from soft­ware solu­tions, soft­ware driv­en after sales ser­vices and optim­ised equip­ment utilization.

IndustryApps is on the fore­front of help­ing com­pan­ies with their Indus­tri­al Digit­al Trans­form­a­tion through a unique Ecosystem.

Data inter­con­nectiv­ity efforts can be reduced by up to 98%, allow­ing com­pan­ies to gradu­ally cre­ate their digit­al twins and inter­con­nect data with­in the com­pany (IT/OT, between sites) and with cus­tom­ers and suppliers.

The umati part­ner­ship will not only add a lot of value for us, but will also help to drive fur­ther stand­ard­iz­a­tion. We will nev­er reduce the com­plex­ity in a man­u­fac­tur­ing site, but we can sim­pli­fy sig­ni­fic­antly the efforts for a com­pany to bene­fit from the data across vari­ous sources and the umati ini­ti­at­ives is a mile­stone in these efforts.”

Mar­cus Del­lith, SVP IndustryApps

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

“The biggest chal­lenge for our cus­tom­ers is to con­nect dif­fer­ent data sources. While IndustryApps is redu­cing these efforts sig­ni­fic­antly, there are still exist­ing bar­ri­ers to extract data for 3rd party applic­a­tions from vari­ous equip­ment. These bar­ri­ers slow down digit­al trans­form­a­tion and the roll-out of solu­tions across factor­ies. Mov­ing from pro­pri­et­ary to open stand­ards will be a game-changer for the industry and inter­con­nectiv­ity is going to be a major com­pet­it­ive advantage.”

Sandeep Sreeku­mar, COO IndustryApps

How do you eval­u­ate the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry?

“The expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive cre­ates sig­ni­fic­ant bene­fits for both the cus­tom­er and the mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry. Look­ing back, the first App Store for our smart devices star­ted with 300 applic­a­tions, today it’s mil­lions. Because the whole concept of hav­ing dif­fer­ent applic­a­tions from dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers inter­act­ing with each oth­er on one device (based on stand­ards) revolu­tion­ised our lives.

The umati ini­ti­at­ive is cre­at­ing that same oppor­tun­ity to the mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry. A diversity of top-class assets, that can eas­ily be con­nec­ted along the value chain of a cus­tom­er, show­ing a bene­fit in hours instead of months or years is a huge com­pet­it­ive advantage.”

About IndustryApps

IndustryApps was foun­ded in 2018 in Singa­pore with affil­i­ates in Ger­many, India, China & Aus­tralia and an asso­ci­ate net­work in vari­ous countries.

Being Industry Vet­er­ans from a Ger­man MNC, we have exper­i­enced first hand the chal­lenges about indus­tri­al digit­al transformation.

Under­stand­ing the prob­lem, we cre­ated the IndustryApps Eco­sys­tem to make Your Data work — for You:

  • Our “Data­Space” plat­form reduces con­nectiv­ity efforts of IT/OT by up to 98%, comes with build in cyber secur­ity and is agile and scal­able across sites and with sup­pli­ers and cus­tom­ers. The vis­ion of Catena‑X or manufacturing‑x is becom­ing a reality.
  • Scale your digit­al twin accord­ing to your needs and pri­or­it­ies, roll out exist­ing in-house or 3rd party solu­tions across your cor­por­a­tion in weeks or months, not years, cre­ate your Digit­al Product Pass­port (DPP) and under­stand your Product Car­bon Foot­print (PCF).
  • In our open AppStore we intro­duce amaz­ing solu­tions from our Solu­tion Part­ners that can help you to scale.

You don’t need major upfront invest­ments or long term con­tracts with us. Your com­pany evolves, so does your require­ments. IndustryApps is your simple, fast, secure, flex­ible & scal­able solu­tion for your indus­tri­al digit­al Transformation.
