Wittmann Technology GmbH is now part of the umati community
What expectations do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?
From the partnership with umati, we are expecting to get the opportunity to highlight our commitment to the adoption of OPC UA in all our products in the form of a joint marketing presence. We are convinced that the data aggregation realized in the hub/app by umati with its networking partners will show the benefits of a cross-industry standard and will drive its development.
What advantages does umati offer your company and your customers?
Our customers can benefit from the harmonization of recurring use cases involving interdomain communication across all industries. The standardized interfaces will reduce costs by speeding up system development. The customers will profit from an added value through built-in readiness for standardized (cloud) applications.
How do you evaluate the expansion of the umati initiative to the entire mechanical engineering industry?
By developing intra-industry standards, a lot of resources are wasted, and great potential remains untapped. In contrast, umati aims to find general solutions to general problems. In order to advance our society, we must strive for efficiency which can be achieved by standardization and reuse.
