digital sovereignty

Changing software and adapt it to your own needs? Using software completely independent of third-party specifications? Entering data in software and knowing for sure who has access to it and where the data is stored? These are essential components when we talk about digital sovereignty. This is possible. Already today. Using open source software (OSS). And honestly: we don't know of any business process that can't be fulfilled using OSS.

The dream of a paperless office has been with us for decades, just like the Internet refrigerator. Neither has been definitively solved yet, and we need to shift the focus. Digital transformation goes far beyond these concrete use cases and is ultimately a question of attitude. How can I map my business processes digitally? And when does it even make sense? Do I really have to implement it for every process, or are there benchmarks against which I can measure the efficiency and thus more easily bring about an investment decision? The pleasant side effect of digital transformation: the shortage of (local) skilled workers no longer strikes as hard. Let's talk about remote / new work.
