Integration Solutions White Paper
Download the »Integration Solutions« white paper for free now!

Many of the words we use to describe digital innovations are actually thousands of years old. Integration platforms, for example, are a current tech trend that is becoming more and more important. Integratio, however, is a Latin term. It means something like merger or unification.

In the field of information technology, integration describes how many different systems can be connected with each other in such a way that seamless data exchange becomes possible. Systems exist in all companies, which means that there are not only an enormous number of them, but they have also grown heterogeneously over decades. After all, digitalisation itself is no longer just a trend, but omnipresent.

  • How does modern integration work?
  • What strategies, providers and solutions are there?
  • Which ones are right for whom?

Answers to these questions can be found in our new »Integration Solutions – Providers and Systems Compared« white paper.

Shopping has to be easy, fast and convenient. Especially online. For a significant proportion of consumers, however, shopping is still more of a chore. The majority of Germans are already satisfied when the products they order arrive at their homes; only about 17 per cent of them expect the online shops they choose to provide satisfying or even enjoyable shopping experiences.

The problem here is that the image of online shops as conveyed by advertising does not always correspond to reality. Fancy interfaces of e-commerce vendors are often deceptive and lead to around 52 per cent of consumers being disappointed by the actual service of the shops. E-commerce vendors should see these dissatisfactions as an opportunity to exceed the expectations of their customers with reasonable measures.

Artificial intelligence can help improve shopping experiences in e-commerce and boost sales. But how exactly?

»Migration in E-Business« – Options, Tips and Opportunities for Migrating Systems [New White Paper]

Applied for a new electricity and gas connection? Told everyone about your new address? Packed countless boxes? What we are talking about? About moving. It may be exhausting, but it is often the right step towards a better life with more opportunities for development.

In IT, it is pretty much the same: migrations often work wonders here as well. There are certainly things that need to be optimised: the e-commerce system is outdated and will even have security gaps soon – or it is no longer able to meet the requirements because it is too slow and not scalable enough.

Migrations are usually more than a version change, an update. Migrations offer the opportunity to significantly improve processes and enhance features. But how?

In our new »Migration in E-Business – Reasons, Opportunities & Best Practices for System Migration« white paper, we take an in-depth look at the reasons for migrations and show ways to identify migration needs at an early stage, make excellent plans and master migrations successfully. In any case, migration is a topic that no company can avoid.
