A considerable contribution to providing business success and new ways of thinking about IT methods and technologies are part of our value adding.
We have shown this in the past and this drives us forward. IT innovation is not only our demand, but also a clear expectation of our customers as well.
But we can only be a true leader and innovator if we focus our efforts on our specialist areas on the one hand, while also meeting the demands of our customers and keeping pace with market developments. In all of our strategic product lines, but also beyond these, this means always being at the cutting edge, consistently investing in new ideas, and never being content with what we have achieved so far. But also being prepared to make mistakes and to learn from them.
Therefore, we believe it is important to foster and advance the collective intelligence and creativity of all our employees, to always take inspiration from our surroundings, and to create breathing space that allows us to transform ideas into results. Platforms such as hackathons, ship-it days, coding camps, and so on help to foster and implement ideas and are accompanied by professional ideas and innovation management.
Furthermore, we allow ourselves to consider issues beyond the standard project business and to try out new things. In this connection, our wide range of labs represent an important building block, and are used to explore, with a certain and necessary research character, areas ranging from robotics, mobile, and security to cloud computing, telematics, and analytics.
