Smartphones and other digital applications such as tablets are probably the most apparent signs of the digital transformation. It is quite impossible to live without them nowadays. Just think about new shoes; after a few minutes surfing through the internet and after several klicks you can find a pair of new shoes just a few days later in front of your door. Things which seemed unthinkable ten years ago are now part of our daily life and this change is nowhere near over. Broadband communication, the integration of technologies and systems via internet and the development of new digital markets are without doubt the main reason for the increasing level of digitalisation over the past few years. For companies there are some important implications relating to the digital change: Production cycles become shorter, innovations arive on the market faster, technological norms gain importance and new players rush into the markets. The raising digitalisation of our society provides opportunities as well as challenges and we made it to our duty to support you in meeting these challenges in a proper way.
A “Smart City” is a resource-saving and low-emission city providing a high level of life-quality. Further characteristics are a high degree of energy effeciency and the application of latest technologies. The concept of Smart Cities is broad and contains different indicators such as building and settlement structures, traffic and mobility, technological infrastructure, economics, population and governance. As the term “smart” obviously suggests the main implication of Smart Cities is the smart linkage of said factors. One principal reason for the development of Smart Cities is the problem of the significantly increasing population in urban areas, and it is the target of Smart Cities to meet this challenge as environmentally friendly and efficient as possible. “Smart” technologies such as autonomous vehicles or Smart Flow are highly relevant when developing Smart Cities. Our function is to support you in implementing such systems.
The “fourth industrial revolution” is defined as digitalisation and cross-linking of whole value chains. The trigger of this transformation is the increasing application of new information and communication technologies and thereby stands for more than just the pure use of these technologies. Industry 4.0 is a fundamental hypothesis for new developments and is based on available and future technologies. Companies nowadays have to link their production processes in an intelligent way if they want to stay competitive. The cross-linking of the value chain leads to efficiency improvements since the costs decrease and it enables ressources to be saved. This change creates great opportunities for companies, and we will help you to suitably meet these opportunities while we focus on the “factory” and its environment.
