#diwodo22 digital week in Dortmund: adesso stages 5th Digital Pilgrimage

adesso’s Digital Pilgrimage is set to bring the digital transformation of the business world to life for the fifth time by giving participants a chance to experience a variety of digitalisation projects in person. The event is the IT service provider’s contribution to Digitale Woche Dortmund, or #diwido22, a five-day programme to bring together customers and digital players in the region.

Guided by the theme of this year’s diwodo, “Innovation from the Neighbourhood” (Innovationen aus der Nachbarschaft), adesso is inviting attendees to check out the 5th Digital Pilgrimage as part of its famed Digital Day event series. Guests can get to know specific real-life projects and advancements for the digital transformation of business and society at various stations throughout adesso’s Technology Labs. They will also find answers to burning issues of today, such as how companies can position themselves with an eye to the future, which drivers of technological progress are setting the bar and which innovations business will have to embrace. The journey will also take a look at the role played by concepts surrounding artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, the metaverse, cloud technologies, data and analytics, the internet of things, mobile business, digital commerce strategies and much more.

Frank Dobelmann, adesso’s Chief Technology Officer and the host of the event, looks forward to welcoming visitors: “In a pilgrimage, the journey is the reward. It often gives people a chance to prepare mentally for decisions that will affect their future. It’s a metaphor we like, since we too take our guests on a journey that could set the course for a successful future for their businesses.”
