The IT service provider adesso AG has published a free white paper on the subject of the digital transformation. It explains how companies can systematically identify their potential in a targeted manner before exploiting opportunities using cyber-physical systems – and thereby im-plement the abstract concepts of the digital transformation in specific projects.
The white paper “Digital transformation – now we make it happen!” explains the “Interaction Room” (IR), the perfect project tool for taking stock of digitalisation. With the help of simple rules and a focus on the visual presentation of issues, the IR helps users identify future-oriented topics even in complex situations with unclear requirements. In just a few weeks, it allows companies to create a list of the top opportunities for digitalisation and find out where exactly they should start.
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) play a decisive role in the exploitation of those opportunities. They allow physical objects and procedures to be integrated directly into digital processes, thereby significantly impacting their quality and timeliness. There are significant differences between CPS and traditional IT systems. The white paper makes it clear how companies must develop and use the required CPS, thereby creating new possibilities and processes, and successfully implementing new business models.
The white paper is available for download from an adesso microsite at www.WirMachenDasJetzt.de. The site also offers further specialist articles on specific aspects of the digital transformation written by the IT service provider’s experts.
“Experts have comprehensively examined, analysed and discussed the digital transformation. Now the time for implementation has come. Companies want to impress their customers with products and services that make full use of the digital possibilities,” says Prof. Dr. Volker Gruhn, Chairperson of the Supervisory Board at adesso. “Our white paper answers key questions about that process – how exactly you can achieve those changes and what your next specific steps should be.”
