We are excited and honored to announce that DATTUS has won the Mira Award’s Best New Tech Product for 2016. 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. This is a great opportunity for DATTUS, and we are thankful to our clients, investors, and friends who have all supported us.
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.
The judges said they 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.
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.
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. DATTUS is doing for manufacturing and industry 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, we have cracked the code for transforming existing, aging industrial machinery into smart-machines overnight.
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.
It is clear that DATTUS is leading the “Smart Industry” revolution!
