In order to exploit the full potential of digitalization, it is also worthwhile for small and medium-sized enterprises to look at the topic of eStandards. Today, mid-sized enterprises across all industries and business sectors face the challenge of making their technologies and systems fit for digital networking or completely new business models. Here standards play an important role. For this reason, the Mittelstand 4.0 eStandards Competence Center was created as part of the Mittelstand-Digital funding priority.
The Competence Center offers free information, training and networking services as well as testing and demonstration opportunities for all aspects of digital transformation in open workshops at various locations. The Open Workshop Leipzig, which takes place at the Fraunhofer Centre for International Management and Knowledge Economy IMW, will focus on the introduction of standards for the digital transformation of business models.
