In light of the developments in recent weeks on account of the coronavirus pandemic, BITKOM has called on business, society and politics in Germany to take a new stance on digitalisation and chart a new course. The latest BITKOM position paper, entitled “Digitalisierung erfordert Haltung” (Taking a stance on digitalisation), is intended as a wake-up call. Today, it is more important than ever to actively promote the digital transformation in Germany for once and for all.

The IT service provider adesso will open a new branch office in Potsdam-Babelsberg on 1 July. The branch will be adesso SE’s second office in the Berlin area. The new location will benefit from the proximity to the scientific community in Potsdam’s Babelsberg district, which acts as a hub for creative and innovative industries such as media and film. To this end, adesso has formed close ties with the neighbouring XU Exponential University, Germany’s first institute of higher education for digitalisation. The school is set to launch the joint study programme adesso School of Coding and Software Engineering in the upcoming winter semester.
IT service provider adesso and fintech company CREALOGIX are now offering banks a complete package for portal solutions in digital banking. By joining forces, the two partners are underlining their successful collaboration in major banking projects.

German consumers believe that artificial intelligence (AI) will improve their lives by opening the door to new opportunities and services. They also see the advantages of AI applications and algorithms when it comes to fighting the coronavirus, according to a recent study by the IT service provider adesso. Despite this fundamentally optimistic attitude, however, many are hesitant to use AI-based services such as chatbots.
Times are tough for trainees. The coronavirus has led to a reduction in training opportunities throughout the economy. Companies with reduced working hours are not creating new jobs – particularly for apprentices. That is not the case at adesso. The IT service provider has just filled 20 positions for trainees and students on cooperative degree courses for the training year from summer 2020. A further ten roles for trainee IT specialists and students on cooperative degree courses in IT have yet to be filled, increasing trainee ratio at the company to a new high.
Today LOTTO Thüringen launched its new modern internet presence. The website for Thüringen’s state lottery was again designed and implemented by IT service provider adesso.

The extensive disruption caused by the digital transformation is currently accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Over the coming months, everything is set to change, transform and be redefined: communication, customer relationships, business processes, supply structures, value chains and, especially, the working world. We were already preparing for new job profiles, careers and professions – such as big data scientists or SEO managers – at some point in the future, with 2030 often named as a likely year. When the economy restarts (hopefully soon), it will be IT experts who are in demand. The post-coronavirus economy will be digital.
The new app from IT service provider adesso has expanded Sächsische Lotto-GmbH’s gaming offer to include the mobile sales channel. Current user numbers confirm the concept for the recently launched mobile application, translating into a very successful first few months for the attractive, convenient app. Worthy charitable projects throughout society benefit from net lottery income, helping to make a positive contribution to the common good.
adesso is extending its collaboration with the Berlin-based XU Group GmbH. The initiator of Germany’s first state-accredited university for digitalisation and technology, XU Exponential University of Applied Sciences, has now teamed up with adesso to offer companies training programmes for the digitalisation experts and job profiles of tomorrow. Companies can currently make good use of these services for the further training of their employees who are subject to short-time work and benefit from a subsidy from the Federal Employment Agency. The Federal Government’s recently expanded “Work of Tomorrow Act” (Arbeit-von-morgen-Gesetz) makes this possible.
