Megatrend inter­con­nec­tivity: the conse­quences for companies

Inter­con­nec­tivity is incre­a­singly impacting businesses and consumers at various levels. The spectrum of possi­bi­lities ranges from connected products, production processess and facilities to the inter­con­nection of people in all profes­sional and private environ­ments.

The project “Digital Living” helps gain a compre­hensive overview of develo­p­ments and conse­quences for companies. They are discussed and illumi­nated from different angles.

The spectrum of contents includes e.g.:

• How does the overall trend of “inter­con­nec­tivity” affect products used by people or product develo­pment?
• Which consumer needs and concerns are affected?
• What is the conse­quence of the trend for companies and how can they respond or adapt to it?
• How can we deal with techno­logies that make decisions of their own?
• Which techno­lo­gical standards can be identified?
