For the 12th year in a row, TID Informatik GmbH invited customers, prospective buyers, and partners of the leading software CATALOGcreator® to the popular industry event in Herrsching, on Upper Bavarian Lake Ammersee. This year’s cDAY – on June 1 and 2, 2016 – the TID team was pleased with the new visitor record of over 180 participants! As in past years, we held the celebration at the Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft in Herrsching.
There were many interesting talks held during cDAY 2016 ranging from electronic spare part catalogs to service information systems. We offered workshops under this year’s motto EXCELLENCE FOR SERVICE (CATALOGcreator®, SAP – integration scenarios & up2date service portal), and were happy to let our customers – JENOPTIK Robot GmbH, Klöckner Desma Elastomertechnik GmbH, Claudius Peters Projects GmbH, EREMA Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen Ges.m.b.H. allvisual ag, and Dethleffs GmbH & Co. KG have a turn at the microphone. We presented news and trends surrounding the topics Industry 4.0 and Service 4.0 using CATALOGcreator®.
Guest Lecture: Augmented and Virtual Reality
We were able to win over Dr. Stephan Otto from the Fraunhofer Institut to end the event on a high note. He is working on the continued development and embedding of technologies into future applications for logistics, production, and entertainment, for example. During his talk, he highlighted interesting perspectives, such as how augmented and virtual reality can give new impulse for applications for documentation and service. Dr. Otto made the dream of a holodeck come true, and now it offers 1,400 m² of true interaction with a virtual world (http://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/de/ff/lok/proj/holodeck.html.)
Get-together and Evening Event cDAY 2016
Networking, communication and the exchange of experience was once again in the foreground. Prospective and loyal customers, partners, and TID employees used this casual atmosphere at the get-together to exchange ideas and make new contacts over a cup of coffee or a Prosecco. On June 1st in the evening, everyone was invited to take part in a long round trip on a paddle wheel steamboat named “Herrsching” on Lake Ammersee while, at the same time, revitalizing themselves at the Bavarian buffet.
