Anyone involved in information technology today always finds themselves reading and hearing the same buzzwords over and over again: digital transformation, cognitive computing, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Predictive Analytics and Industry 4.0.
The fact that we are living in a time of great upheaval seems to have reached everyone and is no longer doubted. And also the realization that one must act as an individual and as a company in order not to fall by the wayside in this upheaval has found its way into people's minds. Seldom has the sentence "If you don't keep up with the times, you keep up with the times" been so apt. And then you look around and see self-regulating heaters and independently ordered refrigerators, hear about autonomous cars and talk to Google or Alexa.
Did we already reach the point of singularity?
Furthermore, there are also these terms which, although on everyone's lips, are so difficult to understand that they take on metaphysical features: machine learning and artificial intelligence. One could assume that we have already reached the point of singularity and that software programs have long been able to surpass their creators, us humans, and develop more efficient and intelligent solutions. If machines really are that good already, why should we continue to work on the development of software programs? The answer is both reassuring and sobering: we have not missed the point of singularity, and machines are not as advanced as some would have us believe.
This does not mean, however, that we are not yet able to achieve great things on the basis of software. This black-and-white thinking, so symptomatic of the discussion about the current digital development status of our society and oscillating between the two extremes of singularity and the digital Stone Age, is responsible for the immense uncertainty that drives private individuals and companies. If you do not know where you stand, how should you be able to act now?
Sharing technological knowledge
We know where the technology is today and can also predict quite well where it will evolve in the coming years. This core competence enables us to share this knowledge and accompany companies on their way through the digital present into an even more digitalized future.
That is why we are still developing software: We know the customers' needs and acquired our know-how through decades of experience; our services have grown in the minds of our employees. We have specialized in the needs of companies to help those who can benefit most from digital change. Our products are optimally adapted to this and belong to the innovative spearheads who use today's technical possibilities and are ready to take on the future.
