Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and software provider DATTUS received the Best New Tech Product award during TechPoint’s 17th annual Mira Awards honoring the best of tech in Indiana.
DATTUS is doing for smart-machines what NEST has done for smart-homes and Fitbit has done for personal health. Through simplicity and a unique application-agnostic ‘Internet of things’ platform, this three-year-old company has cracked the code for transforming existing, aging industrial machinery into smart-machines overnight.
DATTUS’ hardware and software IoT approach — which includes machine sensors, data hubs, a software portal and intelligence algorithms — helps to eliminate unplanned downtime and machine failures, drive growth by maximizing efficiencies and production capacities, and provides the needed intelligence for manufacturers to stay compliant with environmental regulations.
The Mira Awards judges believe DATTUS is an extremely innovative and disruptive product, which actually includes a suite of both hardware and software products, that have the potential to revolutionize manufacturing and energy production. DATTUS is already proving its value to some of the largest manufacturing and energy companies in the world, bringing their decades old machinery and decades old maintenance approaches into the new century where the industrial environment is rapidly evolving and data-driven, intelligence decision-making is critical.
The judges were impressed by how complete the product is and they expect big things for DATTUS when machine operators and the CEOs that run the 400,000+ industrial facilities in the U.S. alone get a look at the DATTUS platform and discover it’s a complete, seamless path for industries to add “Smart” to their operations.
TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s tech ecosystem, honored Indiana’s best companies, entrepreneurs, educators, and other leaders for their technology excellence and innovation at The Westin in downtown Indianapolis during the 17th annual Mira Awards gala presented by Angie’s List, Interactive Intelligence, and Salesforce.
A total of 17 award winners and seven runners-up were chosen from the 98 outstanding companies, organizations, and individuals who were selected as nominees this year out of the 168 applications received highlighting achievements during the 2015 calendar year.
Forty independent, volunteer judges spent more than 700 total hours reviewing and ranking applications, interviewing nominees, and selecting this year’s winners. Judges included company founders, CEOs and presidents; CTOs, CIOs and software developers; professors and chancellors from Indiana universities; design, human resources and sales professionals, and a variety of other subject matter experts.
The Mira Awards — named after a variable star thousands of times brighter than the Earth’s sun — represent the best of tech in Indiana each year.
