In addition to highlighting its Digital Business Platform, and a range of Smart IoT solutions, Software AG will also focus on Virtual Reality (VR), Facial Recognition, and Smart Lighting. A kiosk will be available to visitors to experience learning in 3D, by using VR goggles, headphones and a controller. Visitors can perform a series of actions documented as an ARIS process, while learning new things in a 3D and fully sensory environment.

Through its participation at GITEX, Software AG will also promote its facial recognition technology, which is enriched with sensors and uses IoT to create experiences tailor made to each individual. The technology creates its content based on real-time analysis of multiple video streams. These streams, which include face detection technology, provide demographic information about the viewers, such as their age and gender. Facial detection also reveals a customer’s mood.

Software AG has partnered up with Huawei to showcase how cities can become safer, better places to live, and while reducing their energy costs and increasing sustainability through their street lights, which represent a major part of a cities electricity usage and budget. Street lights are represented by smart lights and connected to a Huawei Gateway, through which the analytical engine of the Software AG Digital Business Platform runs predictive maintenance algorithms.

The operator’s dashboard feeds him information on the exact local situation. For example, if lights run out of power, or glitches begin to appear, it is recognized by the analytical engine and automatic work orders are dispatched while the lights are switched to power saving mode to extend the life of the lights for as long as possible. This gives the technicians enough time to replace the faulty lights. Software AG’s Smart Lighting, is a lighting technology designed for energy efficiency.

This may include high efficiency fixtures and automated controls that make adjustments based on conditions such as occupancy or daylight availability. It includes task lighting, accent lighting, and general lighting. In today’s world, most organizations are open to the idea of digital transformation. Moving from analogue to digital, while using digital technologies to change the entire business model and provide new sources of revenue, is becoming a vital step for companies, as developments in innovation and technology continue to increase. Software AG will be showcasing its latest smart solutions at stand A7-30 in Hall 7, at GITEX 2017.
