Marcel Rosenbaum – Stumbling blocks on the path to digitization
“It will never be as slow again as it is today,” said Marcel Rosenbaum, Managing Director of EASY ENTERPRISE SERVICES GmbH. Companies will have to adjust to this during the digitization process, and find ways of shaping digital change in a useful and successful manner. Marcel Rosenbaum identifies four stumbling blocks on the path to digitization: people themselves, too much complexity on digitization projects, missing interfaces, and the fact that companies want to do too much themselves rather than efficiently manage competencies. In his keynote speech, Marcel Rosenbaum also offers actual solutions on how to successfully digitize without those stumbling blocks. Learn more in the video!
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Katarina Adam – Blockchain Technologie
Blockchain technology is on everyone’s lips. Yet it is hardly ever thematically penetrated. In her keynote, Professor Katarina Adam of the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (College of Technology and Business) in Berlin, Germany explained how Blockchain technology works and what specific benefits this megatrend will give companies. Once written in the blockchain, information is irreversible and completely comprehensible. This would result in the greatest advantage of the technology by replacing trust with transparency on the network. For example, it can be used to create contracts – e.g. Smart Contract. What other use cases are there and when can the technology be used outside of Bitcoin and Co.? You can find out from Katarina Adam in the video!
