Remote Expert Collaboration

Remote working approaches have been on the rise for some time now.  Minimizing the need to be on site and enabling expert technical advice remotely provide a sound business case, increase employee flexibility and motivation as well as safeguarding business continuity. Therefore, lean and pragmatic innovations in this area will help your company through these challenging times and will also prove beneficial afterwards.


Project Portfolio Impact Assessment

In these times, companies deal with manifold challenges. Not legally required projects or such that directly support business critical operations are stopped in order to ensure financial liquidity. Looking towards the crisis end, these actions may set back a company by months or years. Hence, it seems some organizations have not considered all variables of the equation, such as up- & downscaling costs, second-line effects, and interdependencies to portfolios, suppliers, or resources. Ignoring such deciding factors might not only outperform cost and liquidity saving measures, leading to greater harm than necessary, but also missed opportunities as soon as the crisis is coming to an end.


Adaptive Supply Chain

The COVID-19 crisis is leading to disruptive events and sudden demand surges and has revealed the weaknesses of supply chains worldwide.
These weaknesses are not caused by the crisis itself but are a result of vulnerabilities in the supply chain caused by a lack of adaptability and resilience.
Companies can eliminate these weak spots by building capabilities allowing data and simulation based decision making, and implementing a dedicated supply chain cockpit enabling E2E transparency. These allow to immediately react to changing consumer behavior and critical events in order to stabilize the supply chain and safeguard the business – in times of crisis and beyond.


Secure Digital Collaboration

More digital cooperation not only reduces the risks of infections, but it means more cybersecurity risks too.

The corona crisis has given digital collaboration a whole new dynamic. Cooperation beyond the secure boundaries of corporate structures brings with it completely new challenges with regard to IT security and data protection. We support you with all questions about IT security and data protection.
