MOBILITY
WARNING: NEW FREEDOM.

WORK 4.0. Real and virtual mobility are pushing the traditional boundaries of our working world into entirely new dimensions. Technologies
such as 3D printing, voice control, artificial intelligence, M2M and IoT
have rewritten the work playbook. Companies and employees sound
freer but is that something they want and can manage?

20

MOVING TARGETS.

30

PIONEER. US economist Erik Brynjolfsson believes that the value


created by digitization should be measured differently in the future
and that machines will never overtake people.

24

TAKING AUTOMOBILE LITERALLY.

AUTOMOTIVE. How connectivity, artificial intelligence and predictive


analytics are transforming the automobile of the future. The directions
taken by BMW, Audi and VW.

29

DRIVING CHANGE WITH D.

VOLKSWAGEN GROUP. D cubed is how Chief Digital Officer


Johann Jungwirth describes the largest European carmakers
approach to digital transformation for customers, for products
and for the company.

A BIG MOVE FOR BIG DATA.

SHELL. 69 IT environments, 7,000 servers, over 100 mission-critical


systems T-Systems took on the largest data center relocation in
Shells history. And pulled it off on spec, on time and on budget.

30

MISTAKEN MEASUREMENTS.

SKEPTICS NO MORE.
37

SALESFORCE. ContiTech, REWE, Zalando and Strer Digital


switched to the CRM market leader with support from a German
service provider.

SECURITY NETWORK. Wolfram Mller, CIO at Europes largest


container terminal operator, talks about cybersecurity in the Internet
of Things, 99.8 percent IT performance and the advantages of
having a spider in the web.

ANALYZE IT. According to Klaus Holzhauser, the Managing Director of


Pierre Audoin Consultants Germany, mobile working requires cautious
investment and genuine partners.

CLOUD COVER.

OPEN TELEKOM CLOUD. Even mid-market enterprises such as


communications provider Schwaiger or software licensing specialist
Octopus are turning to public cloud services. But theyre choosy
when it comes to legal certainty and data protection.

42

HOW HACKING HELPS.

SECURITY EVALUATION SERVICES. Who do you call to see how


your latest product innovation stacks up? Regardless of your
industry, if its hardware or software, you can call the programmers,
engineers, mathematicians, cryptologists and physicists at
T-Systems testing center.

44

A STATE GOES IP.

GOVERNMENT NETWORKS. North Rhine-Westphalia generates


more data traffic than any other German state. It now uses a single IP
transmission standard for data and telephony with speeds of up to
10 gigabits per second.

Work 4.0

Anytime,

WORK HAS CHANGED. PEOPLE USED TO GO TO THE OFFICE, SIT
AT A DESK AND DO ALL THEIR WORK THERE. NOT ANYMORE:
DIGITIZ ATION HAS ADDED A NEW DIMENSION TO HOW WE WORK.
EVERY DAY HAS BECOME ANY TIME. HERE HAS BECOME
ANYPL ACE. WE ALREADY VIEW MOBILIZ ATION AS THE COMPLETE
DIGITIZ ATION OF WORK. BUT WHEN TIME AND PL ACE CONVERGE
IN THE REAL AND VIRTUAL WORLDS, WE NEED FIRM RULES

Mobility
Work 4.0

<Copy> Thomas van Ztphen

ASSIGNED DESKS DIED SURPRISINGLY QUICKLY. First, the laptop arrived now you can work anywhere! Their fate was finally
sealed when cell phones morphed into smartphones.
And now? Do you still make your own phone calls or do you let
your jacket handle it? Wait, what?
These innocent questions may still throw you off today, but you
wont even hear them tomorrow. Its all a matter of looking ahead.
As Claudia Nemat, Member of the Deutsche Telekom AG Board of
Management, Europe and Technology, put it, Theres no law requiring you to use smartphones for all your telecommunications.
Dont get me wrong: its a wonderful invention, just as the rotary
phone was in its day. But one day, they will both end up in a
museum for our grandchildren to admire.
One company thats looking ahead is Levi Strauss, the jeans
manufacturer. It is already developing fabrics that integrate touch
interactivity into trousers and jackets. They can send commands to
smartphones or other devices so that users can make calls or send
text messages. That means, according to Nemat, telecommunications will increasingly become a feature of our clothing. The trend
will even extend beyond clothing, driven by augmented reality, 3D
printing and other technological innovations, and include virtual
reality headsets, smart headphones, bracelets and rings.
Initiatives like Fashion Fusion, which Deutsche Telekom has
incorporated into its long-term innovation strategy, are anything but
playthings, as Jan Mantel will attest. People and things from
machines to smart clothing will form a relationship at home and
work that will change the way organizations think, operate and act
in every industry. The Crisp Research analyst recommends driving
the use of mobile devices and wearables across the enterprise.
And there are excellent reasons to do so.
Germany quietly crossed a big threshold recently. According
to a study conducted by HTW Berlin, a research university, 54 percent of productive employees in Germany were mainly or exclusively mobile workers at the start of the year. This marked the first
time that people who worked solely or primarily at a particular stationary workstation were in the minority.

This change would be impossible without digital workstations powered by a combination of artificial intelligence, software-defined
products and increasingly sophisticated voice control on the one
hand, and IT applications such as the cloud, big data and predictive analytics on the other. For Experton advisor Wolfgang Schwab,
the terms digital workplace, Workplace 4.0 or future workplace are misnomers. Instead, he talks about a digital workspace
where virtually all areas of our conventional desktop world and the
modern mobile domain come together. It sounds like a gradual
process, but the infrastructural requirements would make many a
CIO break out in a cold sweat. The truth about virtual desktop infrastructure and application streaming, management, security and
mobility solutions is this: quite a few organizations believe they can
handle the growing integration requirements themselves, without
any outside help. Theyre mistaken, unfortunately.

THERES NO LAW REQUIRING YOU TO


USE SMARTPHONES FOR ALL YOUR
TELECOMMUNICATIONS. INSTEAD,
OUR CLOTHES WILL INCREASINGLY
TAKE OVER THIS FUNCTION.
