IT2Industry Blog Header GrafikAt IT2Industry, which took place for the first time within the context of International trade fair AUTOMATICA on the grounds of Messe München, numerous visitors and a very well-attended open conference ensured positive stocktaking by exhibitors and conference speakers. We have compiled a selection of the statements for you:

Ilse Aigner, Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology and Deputy Prime Minister:

“We want to be a leading supplier and leading market for Industry 4.0. To this end, an international marketplace is critical to ascertain the current state of developments and establish international contacts at regular intervals.

Consequently, I very much welcome the fact that Messe München provides the platform IT2Industry at AUTOMATICA and makes digitalization a focal topic with it.”


Prof. Dr. Thomas Bauernhansl, Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA:

“Industry 4.0 provides the possibilities of networking of technical systems in real time – and this is a revolution that we must not miss taking part in. Consequently, it is important for companies to deal with this rapid process of change. In connection with AUTOMATICA, IT2Industry provides information and solutions for digitalizing the industry. ”


Harald Dittmar, Board Member and Trade Association Spokesperson of the Federal Association of IT-SMEs:

“When it comes to Industry 4.0, a great deal of uncertainty prevails, especially among SMEs. As a result, IT2Industry plays an important role. At this trade fair, companies receive information, ideas and different strategies for digitalizing their production.”


Beate Maria Freyer, Executive Board Member, machineering GmbH & Co KG:

“We were able to present our simulation software optimally within the context of IT2Industry. Above all, the live tour with the virtual reality goggles connected to the software brought the simulation with industrial physics closer to visitors.”


Rüdiger Fritz, Director of Product Management Plant Connectivity, SAP SE:

“The public at IT2Industry corresponds to the ideal Industry 4.0 target group. Technicians, plant managers and production managers as well as those responsible for IT production experienced what potential is created when IT and business work hand in hand thanks to our demonstrator.”


Stefan Hoppe, Vice President of the OPC Foundation Europe:

“IT2Industry and the OPC Foundation are linked by the aim of bringing the various parties of IT and industry together. Consequently, this trade fair is an ideal opportunity for us to present the OPC standard as interface for automation systems.”


Dr. Wolfgang Klasen, Head Of Research, Group, Siemens AG:

“IT2Industry is a very successful forum for the discussion of industrial security in the context of Industry 4.0. The seamless integration of security-by-design is crucial for the fusion of physical real production with the virtual world.”


Hans Michael Krause, Head of Business Development Industry Sector Processing & Packaging, Bosch Rexroth AG:

“IT2Industry is the ideal platform for us, because important IT topics are addressed within the context of a conventional engineering trade fair. We had many interested inquiries from visitors at our booth with our exhibition of model-based engineering in Industry 4.0.”


Achim Liebl, Managing Director, Softing GmbH:

“IT2Industry provides a natural platform for the merger of information technology and automation technology. We were represented both at the booth of the OPC Foundation and with our new Industrial Data Intelligence Group at the Circle of Innovation Industry 4.0 and had a great response to our range of products for data communication, collection and analysis.”


Robin Prosch, Director Data Driven Business, acentrix GmbH:

“IT2Industry provides decision-makers with important information to make production in times of digital transformation even more effective and identity new opportunities in the areas of the cloud and data-related information.”


Prof. Dr. August-Wilhelm Scheer, Founder of Scheer GmbH:

“IT2Industry brings together the most important parties for Industry 4.0: users, suppliers and science. However, persons from the world of politics also obtained information there about creating suitable general conditions for new developments. As a result, the trade fair is an ideal meeting place to collaborate on structuring Industry 4.0 concepts.”


Dr. Rainer Stetter, Managing Director of ITQ GmbH:

“Companies that do not deal in this day and age with the topic Industry 4.0 will have no future. Under this aspect, the IT2Industry shows very clearly how much the weight has shifted away from conventional industry to software engineering and IT. ”


Gürkan Uzer, Co-Initiator of the Circle of Innovation Industry 4.0 in the SME sector:

“IT2Industry provides an optimum platform for SMEs that have innovative approaches in the area of Industry 4.0. During the round tables, which we organized on the occasion of IT2Industry, two companies of the Circle declared that they would make their production processes using a comprehensive approach to Industry 4.0 accessible to the circle of initiators.”
