Our observations show that with mobile working models, flexible working hours and digital alternatives, stability and productivity are entirely possible – in the financial world as well. The buzzword in this context is ‘new work’. In this blog post, I’d like to present in greater detail what the term actually means, how it affects banks and what the use cases that can be experienced in banking look like.

Statutory health insurance companies in Germany have had to offer their policyholders their personal electronic patient record (EPR) since 1 January 2021. So far, only a little more than 470,000 electronic patient records have been created, despite the potential of about 83 million users. In my blog post, I’ll explain why this is the case, address the challenges private health insurance companies face and show how the situation can change.

Advances in IoT and other information technologies such as cloud and mobile computing have promoted the digitisation of products. Digital products offer a wide range of opportunities for innovation and high potential for new use cases. While customer centricity is an important consideration, manufacturers should also consider the internal benefits of use cases on the manufacturing side. In my blog post, I explain how we help companies do this.

A climate-friendly energy carrier like hydrogen is becoming increasingly relevant in times of disputed gas supplies, rising energy prices and advancing climate catastrophes. The import of green hydrogen from abroad as well as projects for domestic production, distribution and use within Germany are already being planned. In our blog post, we’ll explain to you how gas is turned into a tradable product and which requirements have to be met in order to establish a functioning market.

Together with other testing experts, prominently from the insurance sector, I founded the Testing@Insurance CoP last summer. My blog post introduces you to our Testing@Insurance CoP in more detail.

It is no longer possible to imagine IT projects without the cloud, regardless of what industry you’re talking about. New business models offer advantages in terms of scalability, stability and security, which deliver benefits across the cost structure of the IT system landscape. In many customer situations, the cloud is used as an all-purpose term or even as a buzzword. It loses its core meaning. But what is the cloud and what does it mean for me?

The path to successful digitalisation in the laboratory requires the use of IT systems. While a large part of the documentation and data volume for manual process steps is kept on paper, an increased level of digitalisation also entails an increased volume of data. This makes it all the more important to ensure that the IT systems that are used are validated so that the data that’s generated and processed is subject to the required quality criteria.

Data is one of the most valuable assets for any company – and this is no different for insurers. The amount of data continues to grow as digitalisation gathers pace. The challenge for insurers is to generate complete, high-quality data from the vast quantities of information available. This blog post explains what data-driven insurance is and what the associated requirements and implications are.

The legal framework has been established to meet the three overarching objectives of energy policy, those being economic efficiency, environmental compatibility and security of supply. This includes the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), which has created incentives for the expansion of renewable energy sources. Since this subsidy is no longer available or will soon be phased out for certain installations, we would like to present options on how to sell the energy they generate in the future in this blog post.
