fortiss offers a variety of competencies and takes a holistic approach to implementation. Our mission is to master a wide variety of technologies and competencies in such a way that they can be successfully applied on both an individual and integrative basis.

From sensor to business model

We are surrounded by things that contain software. As software plays a key role for businesses and their products and services today, excellence in software, systems and service engineering has become an important competitive advantage in order to meet growing market demands. In this respect, fortiss covers all three areas and develops solutions at the highest level for businesses and the public administration.
