ADAMOS is a manufacturer-neutral software platform for the Industrial Internet of Things. It offers simple and flexible digitization of manufacture to users of machines and production plants. The ADAMOS platform can be used to interconnect machines, enabling them to exchange information via the Internet. This makes for more efficient production. Established in 2017, the ADAMOS GmbH joint venture consists of Software AG and the mechanical engineering firms DMG MORI, Dürr, Zeiss, ASM PT, Engel and Karl Mayer.
The cross-sectoral German Innovation Award recognizes products and solutions that are user-friendly and offer added value. This award, which has been presented for the first time, is an initiative of the German Design Council. Created by the German Bundestag (German parliament) and sponsored by German industry, it promotes the competitiveness of companies.
The panel of judges gave the following reason for giving the award for ADAMOS: "The digitization of our society is advancing with great strides. For the mechanical and plant engineering sector – especially SMEs – this transformation is both a challenge and an opportunity. This is where ADAMOS provides innovative and sustainable solutions."
Dr. Marco Link, Managing Director of ADAMOS: "ADAMOS is the first manufacturer-neutral IIoT platform that is focused entirely on the mechanical and plant engineering industry.
