Digitalization – A Technological Perspective

In order to successfully meet the challenges of digital transformation, it is necessary to understand the technical developments and trends that underlie the buzzwords of Big Data, Internet of Things or Industry 4.0, as well as their business implications. The program starts with an introduction to digital transformation from a technological perspective.

Digitalization - A Technological Perspective (on-campus in Potsdam)

3 days, face-to-face workshops and seminars @ Hasso Plattner Institute, Potsdam, + Live virtual keynote by Stanford faculty

Our program delivery: 

  • Understand the fundamental digital technologies in use today, and be aware of likely developments in the future. The program covers topics such as Cloud Computing, Big Data Science and Management, Cybersecurity, and Networks.
  • Learn how the Internet and digital technologies connect people, computers and things, turning our world into a smart one, and become aware of new possibilities and applications that arise from this development.
  • New revolutionary database technologies enable the flexible and lightning-fast analysis of massive amounts of enterprise data. Get to know the opportunities that derive from big data analytics, showcased in several prototypes sketching out potential fields where to apply the technology.
  • Cloud computing is a huge shift in technology. Understand its implications and potentials.
  • Since digitalization comes with an increasing dependency on the security and reliability of IT systems and the Internet, the program also explores security threats – and how to confront them. Learn about cyberattacks and the challenges of securing data and networks.
  • Get to know how digitalization changes interactions and processes within and across organizations, industries, and society.
