Achieve the requirements for Industrie 4.0 through flexible, secure and company-wide IT systems!

  • With Digital Transformation and Industrie 4.0, the IT landscapes of large companies are experiencing rapid growth. Structures that have evolved over time cannot withstand this development and the organization’s further development is paralyzed. In order to master digital transformation, a company-wide digitalization strategy is indispensable, which takes into account planning and implementing business processes, business models and business strategy (adding architectures and/or platforms). The cornerstones of the digitalization strategy include enterprise architecture management, IT/OT architecture and strategic decisions regarding the selection of suitable platforms.

    The responsibilities, roles and governance structures for implementing this digitalization strategy are considered within the framework of Enterprise Architecture Management. This enables regulated company-wide cooperation and targeted business model innovations. The digitalization strategy also sets the guidelines for an enterprise-wide IT/OT architecture that enables both vertical integration to occur internally from sensors to the corporate management level, as well as externally occuring horizontal integration from the supplier to the customer.

    IT/OT architectures today have to meet high demands on flexibility and agility. Platforms fulfill these requirements because they allow established processes, procedures and algorithms to be reused. It is therefore important to select and integrate the right platforms into the company's digital business models and processes. Platforms usually consist of many different building blocks, all of which can be classified into one or more of the cloud computing levels: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The various building blocks and services must be selected according to need.

    The foundation for your enterprise architecture management, IT/OT architecture and a suitable platform for you are always your existing processes, applications and IT landscape. As a first step, we will record and analyze these. Create the prerequisites for Industrie 4.0 with a regulated, flexible, secure and cross-company IT/OT architecture! These fundamentals are also decisive for new business models. We support you not only by defining new Enterprise Architecture Management structures, but also in the technical implementation of IT/OT architectures and  the selection of suitable platforms.
