Logistics

IT review of one of the largest parcel shipping

The IT landscape of a player in the logistics sector consists of numerous, historically grown, different systems and platforms, some of which were developed in-house. The tech stack is very broad, whereas both the usual IT management processes and a clear definition of USP-relevant systems are not sufficiently in place. In addition, the dilapidated organisational structure hardly allows for productive cooperation between the business and IT sides.

The technology management of IT systems must be established as a continuous and evolutionary architecture process in such a way that the necessary scope for innovation to increase productivity and quality is created without simultaneously increasing the complexity of the overall IT landscape.

Transforming the Core. Splendor and Misery of the Inevitable

Macroeconomic conditions, high regulatory pressure, and increasing customer requirements are driving impetus in operational IT management. Successful transformations require that technology management is understood as an integral part of a strategy and that strategic, organizational, and technological requirements are differentiated and taken into account in both the solution design and the control of measures. In addition, the pressure to change must be met promptly and more decisively than in the past.

Apple Identity Wallet - Disruption as a catalyst for digital transformation

Apple's strategy of enforcing an identity management system on local devices to store and reuse sensitive customer information is potentially disrupting the exponentially growing and highly profitable identity market.
