Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. August-Wilhelm Scheer receives Rudolf Diesel Medal

On July 13, 2023, the Rudolf Diesel Medal, the oldest and most prestigious innovation award, was presented to Prof. Dr. August-Wilhelm Scheer in Augsburg for the "most successful innovation achievement". He was honored as a visionary and entrepreneurial implementer of modern architectures for information systems.

The justification for the award of the medal states, among other things: "The ARIS concept, developed by August-Wilhelm Scheer around 1990, is a framework for optimizing business processes. The software product ARIS Toolset for modeling and optimizing business processes, developed by his company IDS Scheer AG, became one of the few internationally successful software products made in Germany. The ARIS concept simultaneously provided a theoretical foundation for the success of the process-oriented enterprise software that has shaped corporate information processing over the past 30 years."
