World’s Leading Optics + Saxonian Software Expertise = Smart Manufacturing Innovations
Digitalization is not a one-man show and certainly not a discipline that a company can fulfil on its own. Today, collaborative approaches such as shared offices with cloud hyperscalers, joint start-ups, insourcing of service providers, and much more can be seen on the digitalization market. The industry’s digital roadmaps create a variety of challenges, as the software development capacities on the market are limited and will be further limited in the future: What forms of collaboration are needed to enable a digital production platform or an ecosystem? How can we integrate additional added values to accelerate collaborations? Is there a way of collaboration that reduces the use of software resources to implement your digital roadmaps? etc. With ZEISS Digital Innovation (ZDI), the ZEISS Group has been pushing a new approach since acquiring the Dresden-based software service provider Saxonia Systems AG in 2020. The focus is on synergies along industrial ecosystems and platforms in the interaction between ZDI customers in the market and the ZEISS Group - be inspired by the approach of ZEISS Digital Innovation!
