Smartphone Intelligence Service: Ever taken a peek?

Life is like a film – sometimes at least. You might have heard of the film “The Lives of Others”, a spy flick focused on an East German Stasi captain named Wiesler (played by Ulrich Mühe). So, what does it have to do with digitisation and smartphones? Well, a little bit anyway: “One in four […]

Working overtime: Not unavoidable!

According to the Nuremberg Institute for Employment Research, Germany’s working population worked a total of 15.36 billion hours during the third quarter of 2017. That’s 1.3 percent more than during the same period of the previous year. Compared to the second quarter of 2017, this is a 0.3 percent increase due to seasonal and calendar […]

Do it like EASY: Don´t complain, act global

Internationalising a Software Company like EASY? What purpose would it serve?   Planning is Half the Battle First off, it would certainly save quite a bit of time and money, since all products and their documentation have to be translated into the different national languages, preferably by native speakers. We also need multiple contact persons […]

Working overtime: Is it really going to be more and more unavoidable?

Today we sense that an increasing number of people are complaining about increasing workloads. This frequently results in burnouts, high absence rates, and inefficiencies. The question that arises in this context, especially in times of growing digitization and automation of work, is: is it really inevitable? Let’s look at a few figures, e.g. overtime. In […]

Digitisation Beyond the Horizon: Bayern, BVB, and Schalke In Front – Leipzig Last

The fact that digitisation has made its way into professional sports is no secret – especially not in the world of professional football. Just think of hawk-eye goal line technology or famous (infamous?) packing metrics, which involve analysing the passing games of individual kickers and whole teams. But what’s the picture like when it comes […]

Enterprise Mobility: Mobility Boosts Productivity

One current study is taking a look at the status of implementation and the advantages of enterprise mobility. The study’s architects restricted their investigation to companies in the United States and Great Britain. However, the results are still interesting – and provide some information on the extent to which companies can benefit from enterprise mobility. […]

Digitisation Meets Species Conservation: Documentation Work Where You Don’t Expect It

Today, we are going to take an admittedly somewhat exotic journey into the world of digitisation and its consequences. Rosewood trees have been under species conservation protections since the start of this year. To be more specific: more than 300 species of rosewood are now protected. Not all rosewood sub-species are threatened by overexploitation and […]

Cool, or Crazy? More Things than People

Things could get crowded on the Internet of Things (IoT): Experts from analytics firm Gartner are predicting a “population” of 8.4 billion devices that can communicate over the internet by the end of this year. Coffee makers, fitness bracelets, refrigerators, and of course lots of industrial applications – all these devices and more have been […]

Mobile Work: Using Opportunities and Advantages

Ideally, employees and employers would have an equal interest in facilitating mobile work. More and more people are demanding that their employers give them the ability to move freely and participate in company processes on the go. Digitisation is changing processes, as we all know, along with our own workflows and framework conditions. However, this […]
