Digitalization in the age of Covid19


At present, it is more apparent than ever that Germany is lagging far behind in terms of digitization in an international comparison.

Unfortunately, this applies to most areas and activities across all industries.

For this reason, it is perplexing to have to witness the following situations:

  • Companies that do not update their websites at the moment, e.g. to communicate changed opening hours.

  • Companies that are not able to provide their employees with access to the internal file system (or the mail server) in order to establish a home office structure at all

  • Schools whose learning platforms are no longer accessible because of the increased rush of students who want to download their assignments and documents

  • A rudimentary use of video conferencing systems in many companies

In this context, it has been obvious for very many years where the problems of companies lie and how they can be eliminated.

Basically, and not just since Covid19 , companies should focus their business, services and documentation on three key areas:

  1. Availability

  2. Scalability

  3. Security

The last of the three points in particular is one of the most critical points, which is already being increasingly used by many criminal energies at the moment. Ominous phishing mails, supposedly free offers, are currently the rule. The risk and thus the significance of IT security is thus once again becoming more important.

Despite the need to quickly build up the digital infrastructure of companies and institutions, there are a number of things to keep in mind so that the next problems do not automatically arise or technologies are used that do not meet the company's requirements in the long term.

Every crisis is also an opportunity, as the saying goes, but in order to implement your own digitization in such a way that it meets both today's and tomorrow's requirements, the primary focus should be now.

We are happy to help you with this!
