The answers to these questions can be derived upon using Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM).
Based on the business strategy of a company, we derive necessary corporate skills (Business Capabilities) and create a business architecture. We use TOGAF as an architectural framework.
The company‘s required capabilities significantly influence the necessary organisation and its processes, as well as the Information System Capabilities.
Based on the Information System Capabilities ,a future-oriented IT strategy is developed that can be gradually implemented.
Another possible execution of the IT strategy is the implementation of a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Based on this architecture, processes can be flexibly combined and deployed (for example by BPM / BPMN).
“How can my customers have transparent online access to their purchase orders and ensuing sales support?”
Portals provide the ability to provide a single point of access to diverse content and applications. User groups and permissions play an important role in order to provide personalised viewing and access options.
We design and develop portal solutions and CMS based solutions that can be used as retail, employee and partner systems. We use portal systems such as Magnolia, LifeRay. etc.
WE WILL KICK OFF OUR NEW ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN TOMORROW. HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT OUR SERVER WILL HANDLE THE ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC?
An important aspect to this problem is the interface between software development and data center / operations (DevOps). In order to respond quickly to increased user numbers and load requirements or to make changes to releases / versions, the deployment is done in the cloud automatically, taking into account quality and security.
Modern cloud platforms (i.e AWS, Heruku) and using approaches such as docker allows you to scale your applications in seconds.

“I am dealing with a challenging IT project and I don’t want to commit to a
Manufacturer OR my requirements can‘t be met with a standard software. I want to own and develop modern software.“
We advise our customers on the planning and implementation of IT projects.
In this context, we will analyze the request and evaluate it from a technical point of view and create an architecture blueprint with you. Based on modern and lightweight backend technologies / middleware (i.e Spring, JEE, Hibernate, NoSQL), frontend technologies ( i.e AngularJS, Play! Framework, JSF, Vaadin) and using agile methods (i.e Scrum, Kanban, XP ) we turn your software visions into reality.

HOW CAN I PROVIDE ALL NECESSARY INFORMATION TO MY REMOTE SALES & MAINTENANCE TEAMS? HOW CAN I OFFER MY CUSTOMERS THE POSSIBILITY TO PURCHASE ORDERS FROM THEIR SMART PHONE?
Mobile Apps and Web solutions with responsive design provide a good opportunity to solve this problem. For example, a maintenance video instructing how to repair a customer’s product can be made available or a direct email can be sent via mobile to targeted consumers allowing them to make „on the spot“ purchases.
The communication between the mobile client and server is generated via WLAN or mobile telecommunications. In the event of a communication termination, data is buffered on the mobile client and synchronized after reconnection.
We design and develop mobile solutions and mobile apps for use as part of retail, employee and partner systems.
WE ARE AN INDUSTRIAL COMPANY AND OUR CUSTOMERS WANT ONLINE ACCESS TO MONITOR THE STATE OF THEIR MACHINES, PERFORM EVALUATIONS ON THEM AND SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE. HOW CAN WE BUILD THIS PROFESSIONALLY?
Sensors are being used in numerous machines and vehicles in order to obtain a huge amount of interesting and valuable data ( i.e Big Data ). This data can be transferred via interfaces to a server, a data center or a cloud, where it is evaluated and processed in various ways.
We can realise multitenant control panels for machinery, vehicle fleets, etc or for electrical household appliances (Home Automation) as user interface for your customers.
Accordingly, a series of measurements taken at intervals can predict and plan maintenance at an early stage (“Predictive Maintenance”). As a result, failures are avoided and the efficiency can be increased. Other relevant applications include energy savings, logistical optimization, route planning for vehicle fleets, vehicle tracking, and much more.
Thus, value-adding services can be implemented as offers for your customers, allowing you to generate additional revenue. In this way, industrial companies can expand their service offering and expand its spectrum toward a services-oriented company.
Therefore, we can support you in the design, implementation and operation of solutions in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) and industry 4.0.
