Digital Communication - Away from the Pages Towards the Content
Harald Grumser, Compart
Digitalization is, once again, a buzzword with recurring press coverage. It plays a vital role, not only in the context of the Internet of things or Industry 4.0 but also in customer communication. We are no longer talking about just another communication channel but about a fundamental change of processes and organizations. The lecture describes the fundamental concepts and the resulting consequences for handling business processes. A key aspect is the increasing significance of content which requires a different preparation for each output device. In this respect, the page and the printed document are still indispensable but they are only one part, albeit an important part, of the increasingly complex application and system landscape.
