Industrial Presentation: HILTI
Nowadays, when reading management and IT journals, one inevitably crosses the terms of digitalization of businesses. The increasing digitalization of business processes as well as its penetration into ITbased service processes is in full motion. The afore-mentioned journals sometimes fall all over themselves by presenting news and business ideas, which seem to be enabled by digitalization. One should consider though that the wave of digitalization did not descend on us overnight. Rather, it is a process that is already on its way since years and it is keeping the IT departments of corporations busy. It is vital – especially for pioneering IT departments – to transform the corporations’ IT architectures and landscapes to allow for digitalizing business. Oftentimes, this is a long and painful process as the historically grown IT applications – such as e.g. ERP applications – have mostly not been designed for digitalizing a corporation’s business. Hence, a lot of conceptual and process work is needed before one should embark onto the journey of making a corporation’s IT architecture and landscape ready for digitalizing its business.
