IT and business come together to form a value creation system in which the democratisation of technology is shifting the areas of responsibility and new processes and organisational structures are emerging.

Digitalisation is on everyone’s lips. Everyone is talking about it. My perception, however, is that we usually talk about digitalisation in far too abstract a way and forget what is happening at a more concrete level. The ideas of digital material from the field of digital design offer a nice alternative way to talk about digitalisation.

In recent months, there have been many innovations in the market for self-service BI tools. In this way, innovative software products are making it possible to expand the user base of analytics applications. Our customers have also become aware of this development, which has led to us being commissioned to carry out a corresponding tool comparison. In our blog post, we would like to briefly describe the procedure used for this tool evaluation and then present the data preparation tools from the shortlist (Alteryx, Trifacta and Microsoft Power BI Dataflows) in more detail.
Agile approaches are now very widely accepted. Scrum is often used as a framework and fixed events (meetings) are specified, among other things. Projects in the insurance industry often employ an agile approach, too. Despite that, employees and stakeholders sometimes harbour prejudices. I used to be project controller in a previous life, during which time I was involved in an agile project and was confronted with prejudices at the beginning. In my blog post, I would like to talk about prejudices and my own practical experiences regarding agile approaches based on Scrum.

In my blog post, I will take a closer look at the digital maturity check.
