“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future”.  – John F. Kennedy

When the German Chancellor Angela Merkel said “Anything that can be digitised, will be digitised” she hit the nail on the head. The IT sector operates in a highly dynamic environment – technically and legally. The digital transformation creates completely new business models and processes. It also changes the customer experience.
