it-economics IT³-Con - Digitization and Agilisation in practice

On January 24, 2019 it-economics held its annual conference, the IT³-Con, in Munich. More than 180 participants from all it-economics locations in Germany, Switzerland and Bulgaria, partners and invited guests met in the HolidayInn Munich City Centre to attend lectures and workshops on management and technology topics.

What current technologies have potential in software development? And how do companies manage to become more innovative and agile?

Specialists from it-economics, partners aiso lab, Allianz, Camunda, Pivotal and Sopra Steria shared their expertise in lectures, workshops and personal talks during the breaks and at the after-party.

In the technology area, various new frameworks were presented including Micronaut for Java development and Flutter for hybrid development of Android and iOS applications. Development talks varied from Swift, Apache Kafka to Docker. Pivotal presented its cloud solutions and Sopra Steria showed INgine, a software as a service solution for insurance companies. Different application scenarios of the Atlassian Suite were discussed in three Lightning Talks. Camunda, it-economics partner, talked about the importance of process automation for the future of companies, while aiso-lab, partner, showed what is now possible in the area of artificial intelligence.
