Welcome to The Digital Transformation Blog

After so many years of ongoing improvements of on-premises IT, it became evident that the actual development of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Cloud, Internet of Things, Mobile Devices, SaaS, and all other technical inventions are more than just hype. I use the term Digital Transformation to summarize this set of terms or keywords.

In the past few years, the cloud was considered inherently unsafe and insecure. This was a big assumption, especially in Germany. Instead, we must step back and look at the entire picture. What is the real comparison of risk to opportunity when it comes to new technology? Are we safe with leaving our data on-premises? Should we allow ourselves to avoid looking into it? Of course not!

I started this blog to present my ideas and thoughts about Digital Transformation—IT, cloud, IoT, mobile, and all the other technologies that are available to us now. Because most of my work has been with SMBs, this blog focuses on how Digital Transformation can affect SMBs. I would highly appreciate your feedback! Let’s use this platform to discuss the Digital Transformation. I look forward to hearing from you.
