Right on the first day BeOne Hamburg invited the visitors at the solutions.hamburg to talk about digital processes. At first Thilo Jeske (CEO @ BeOne Hamburg) derived how isolated data islands have occurred – in most cases for historical reasons. In his presentation he demonstrated why it is unavoidable to eliminate them.
The benefits for digital processes and consistent data flow are obvious, also for small and medium sized companies:
- With the ‚internal‘ digitization you optimize existing processes, e .g in the production (Industrie 4.0)
- With the ‚external‘ digitalization you use the collected data to build up new business models, e. g. digital service platform. So you extend your competitive ability.
Methods and tools are often only the ‚working‘ base for digital processes. Before data can flow, employees have to be trained, the authorizations have to be set up accordingly and all data have to be available. Additionally, the corporate culture is a critical factor for success. A collective understanding of collaboration, openness and leadership is necessary.
Finally we would like to thank the Mittelstand 4.0-Kompetenzzentrum Hamburg, which has organized the Mittelstand 4.0 -day at the solution.hamburg 2017!
