Digitalisation increasingly impacts companies, causing a revolution in business processes and IT because data is available in digital form.
It is stored centrally and securely, evaluated, and prepared for further business decisions.
The data can be accessed via various devices in real time, so that employees can access them from any location and at any time.
In the manufacturing sector, the possibilities of digitalisation were coined as "Industry 4.0".
Here, mobile applications and the possibilities of Big Data & Analytics, cybersecurity and cloud have been beneficial when companies face the challenge of
keeping updated in a rapidly changing world.
Only with an agile and adaptive corporate structure will they be able to turn the potentials of digitalisation into effective processes or new services and products.
By implementing digital strategies, companies are trying to seize the opportunities of the next IT generation and gain competitive advantages. The first step here is to develop innovative and market-leading ideas, which are then implemented in projects.
Studies have shown that the biggest hurdle here is the lack of skilled workers.
There is a lack of employees who are familiar with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies,
data evaluation and analysis, and mobile technologies. Thus, the potential remains (still) mostly untapped.
