With a preface of Marc Andreessen | Andreessen Horowitz

 Call for expert knowledge - submit your paper!



The technological change of the 21st century is decisively shaped by the digital upheaval: there is no future without digitalization. The sale of products and services has left the classical point of sale and takes place via a variety of channels. Whether in the automotive industry, travel and traffic, in cities, or the financial industry – newly designed ecosystems are being created everywhere. Data is being generated and analyzed in real time. Companies compete for mobile access channels to the customer in order gain knowledge about context and personal preferences. The customer has the facility to publish opinions, experience and knowledge as User Generated Content. He himself creates an impact on the market and is able to build or destroy trust. He turns into a brand ambassador in the network, furthermore, customer trust in his suppliers and protection of sensitive customer data is of utmost importance.
