21st century economy

The digital revolution is leading to profound changes in the economy. Product cycles are getting shorter and shorter. Market changes take place more frequently and faster. This phenomenon used to be limited to high-tech sectors. Almost all industries are now affected.

In addition, new technologies for processing huge amounts of data (big data) or the merging of physical and virtual systems (cyber physical systems) are revolutionizing established business models and technologies. The use of artificial intelligence and robotics opens up new application possibilities in the networking of households (Smart Home), in healthcare (Smart Health), energy supply (Smart Grid) or mobility (Smart Mobility). In addition, we are on the threshold of a fourth phase of industrialization (Industry 4.0) through the development of intelligent manufacturing systems (Smart Factory).
