ABB is a pioneering technology leader that is writing the future of industrial digitalization. For more than four decades, we have been at the forefront, innovating digitally connected and enabled industrial equipment and systems.
Whether you want to work with world-class scientists on the next long-term disruptive innovation, to write a program that predicts failure on a 300-meter-long ship, or to ensure that your colleagues worldwide can rely on practical solutions in their daily work, ABB is the place to be. In Poland, we have three main business units, each focusing on different aspects of IT and each a leader in its field:
Corporate Research Center (CRC):
Collaborate with the other ABB Corporate Research Centers, business units and top universities to develop breakthrough technologies that change the way the world works and industries do business.
Global Business Services Information Systems (GBS IS):
Partner with the business in some 100 countries around the world to develop solutions for customer needs or to oversee the IS infrastructure of a highly demanding global organization.
Software Development Center (SDC):
Create unique software cooperating with hardware devices such as ABB robots and control systems.
CRC: Our IT projects are conducted on a variety of hardware platforms and operating systems. These projects allow us to supplement the portfolio of products offered by ABB, which in addition to advanced equipment also includes software for controlling, monitoring and diagnostics. Information technology developed at the CRC in Krakow can be divided into the following areas: desktop applications, web applications, embedded systems, mobile applications and high performance. Recent development targets include cloudbased applications and connectivity aspects.
GBS IS: Every day our team in Krakow works on advanced IT solutions that improve the productivity, efficiency and effectiveness of ABB business operations globally. We collaborate and engage closely with end users to fully understand their needs and maximize their satisfaction with ABB products and services. Our ambition is to develop a world-class Information Systems function by increasing value added to the business and adopting and setting new standards that help us operate quickly, simply and efficiently.
SDC: We provide industry-leading software and deep domain expertise to help the world’s most asset-intensive industries such as energy, utilities and mining solve their greatest challenges, from the plant level to the regional network scale, all the way up to global fleet-wide operations. Thanks to our products, customers in the energy market can assess infrastructure investments, streamline work processes, manage planned or unplanned outages, control power plants and much more. Developed in Krakow and Lodz, our software is used all over the world.
Since 2017 we are proud to develop ABB Ability – ABB’s unique cloud automation platform which helps our customers to harness the power of the Industrial Internet of Things and Advanced Analytics.
