Digital transformation

Digital transformation is the transition to digitalisation of all areas of life and work.

Companies in the centre

Companies are particularly affected, both in terms of internal information and communication flows and production. Digitisation is often a prerequisite for the automation of work processes. But the products and services offered by companies are also subject to digital transformation. An important development in this area is the Internet of Things (IoT).

Technical base

The basis for digital transformation is a technical infrastructure that includes networks (e.g. internet, intranet) and software applications to enable data exchange.


The challenges of digital transformation include data security and the protection of personal data, organisational changes in companies, investments in technologies, human resources and the development of new areas of knowledge.
