Digitize in a pragmatic and practical way
Digital competences are becoming a critical success factor for many companies.
They are an indispensable prerequisite, for example, for achieving higher productivity and efficiency through the intelligent production processes of Industry 4.0, for satisfying individual customer wishes more quickly and in a more targeted manner, or for developing entirely new industrial products and business models. Small and medium-sized enterprises in particular have a special need for support and advice in this area.
For one thing, smart-factory solutions help businesses increase the efficiency of their value chain; for another, digital portfolios provide opportunities to leverage the new markets that emerge. Only companies that optimize both of these factors will be winners in the digital transformation. This process not only means new products and services; it will also lead to a transition in traditional market logic. As a result, Germany’s federal ministry of economics intends to establish future-forward rules for the digital economy, sharing economy and digital platforms. It has launched a broad range of discussions to achieve this goal. One of the first outcomes has been the white paper on digital platforms which took the results of the discussion as the basis for presenting concrete suggestions about regulating digital policies.
Staufen AG offers you a pragmatic and methodical introduction. Together with you, we develop practical digital strategies for your company.
