Digital Health

Digital health is not only empowering people to better track, manage and improve their own and their families’ health. The rise of digital health solutions also has the potential to make a difference for people with chronic or rare diseases. Digital health alters the nature of the doctor-patient communication through increasing virtual treatment, self-care and engagement.  Innovative solutions can contribute to better disease awareness and information, earlier diagnosis as well as to improved adherence.


Of all technology trends of the past years, the Internet of Things might be the one driving biggest disruptions: By making devices smart and connected, the Internet of Things will fundamentally change the way we live and work, and how we interact with each other and our environments. From Wearables to Smart Manufacturing:  IoT changes the way we live and work. It means big changes for consumers, governments and the industry.

Travel & Tourism

Creating personalized travel experiences with location based services, using VR to discover foreign countries or enjoying digital entertainment on the plane – the travel industry is becoming more and more digital. The digitization of tourism is changing the entire customer journey from the travel booking to the stay at the destination. Digital technologies make travel more comfortable, more sustainable and more customer-friendly.
