FDT Developer Forums Connect with Users on Three Continents

Oct. 8, 2014
The best things come in threes. True to this motto, the experts in FDT technology, M&M Software and the FDT Group, recently hosted three FDT Developer Forums on three different continents.

The first FDT Developer Forum brought people from all over the world to the M&M headquarters in St. Georgen, Germany in March. Three months later, in June of 2014, a similar event was put on by M&M and the FDT Group in Suzhou, China. Three months later, the FDT Developer Forum event series took a final trip to Chelsea, MA (Boston area), in early September to finish off a very successful run in 2014.

The three FDT Developer Forums were filled with a multitude of different presentations about the FDT/DTM Technology. M&M’s FDT experts demonstrated how modern DTM development tools and frameworks help to facilitate the quick and efficient development of DTMs for FDT version 1.2.x and version 2. These events also introduced the new test and certification process for FDT2 using the new dtmINSPECTOR 4, which was developed by M&M Software and the FDT Group. Furthermore, attendees of these events gained insight into current technologies and concepts. For example, the demonstration of FDT2 for mobile devices resulted in lively discussions about the architecture and use cases of modern FDT2-based Frame Applications.

Several success-stories and field reports from companies such as Schneider Electric, Flowserve, ABB, Rockwell and Steinbeis Transferzentrum complemented the more technical presentations at each FDT Developer Forum. Each company shared parts of their individual FDT2 development concepts and overall FDT strategies. In order to push the informational boundaries even further, Glenn Schulz, the FDT Group’s Managing Director, gave insight into the future of FDT2 in combination with FDI during his talk. After the main part of the program, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions regarding FDT/DTM Technology individually, getting answers in individual expert sessions with senior M&M developers. An attendance total of 98 participants who gave very positive feedback made the M&M FDT Developer Forums tremendously successful, one that will continue through the coming years. Stay tuned for the FDT Developer Forum in early 2015.
