ITSM Consulting AG sees considerable need for action: Informatics areas must be organisationally agile the trend towards mobile work processes, the use of cloud services or sweeping architecture modifications through the use of virtualization technologies: these and other topics not only technologically IT pose major challenges, but they are subject to a high change Dynamics also organizationally. According to the observations of ITSM Consulting AG helps IT organizations not imagine but often or very delayed the question whether these changes also in the services, processes, and organizational structure are mapped. Depending on the diverse technological developments and requirements of the departments in the IT be brought, the broader implications arise for the organizational structure and procedure of IT”problematizes Frank Zielke, Board member of ITSM Consulting AG. What was organizationally still right and suitable for use three or four years ago, is now as a relatively inefficient and uneconomical He stressed represent”, overlooking numerous experiences from the consulting practice. Alone the staff structure is often already a great vulnerability, because, for example, the technical skills have grown with not parallel to the increased requirements and instead is an overhead no longer needed special skills. Due to the increased performance and cost pressures in the IT the look of the need for lost, once critical to check the status of organizational”, describes a typical cause Zielke.

This unless useful to balance the organizational conditions according to the changing needs over and over again just because the resources have become scarce and higher pressures to the economy. According to our experience, getting double-digit productivity potentials lie fallow, sometimes even productivity increases of 50 percent and more accessible.” How important the individual case such an analysis of the organizational conditions is often omits itself according to the consultants derive relatively easily recognizable symptoms. An in this regard clear indication would be, for example, if work processes appear uncoordinated repeatedly in professional or temporal terms. Also be multiple powers between employees and imbalances in the capacity facilities of different organizational areas of IT signs for a need for action. Even though the structure and process organisation was taken for several years no longer look at, this an important indication represents for him, that the organisation conditions given the intervening changes offer probably not optimal productivity. Programs to increase the efficiency in the IT take often only the technologies and services in the visor, but neglect the possibilities of for organizational optimization”, Joseph sees the need for clear thinking. The IT areas need to be organizationally more agile.”

Let The New Trend: Just The Customers Work

New book shows how companies in this way costs as a company increases customer satisfaction by the fact that it lets the customers work? How is it possible that another company improves the communication with its business partners and at the same time reducing costs? The answer to both questions is the new book business to business portals in practice.” Freiburg, may 2009. The business collaboration with other companies (business customers, partners, suppliers) is for the economic success of most farms of the utmost importance. Nevertheless she carried out always still often very unstructured and without standardized procedures. The employees often spend a significant part of their working time by answering questions or time-consuming routine activities. Simple, recurring operations often trigger avalanches by emails. This costs a lot of time and money. More and more companies therefore implement Web-based portals, targeted data and information with others Companies with whom they work together on business, to Exchange over the Internet. Customers, suppliers and partners can around the clock on a such business-to-business (or short: B2B) Portal access – equipped with individual rights and login on the portal user management.

Specific business processes can be made more efficient with the help of such B2B portals, by these are standardized and automated. An example of this is ordering promotional materials by partners: instead of cumbersome via fax or eMail to make an order, which finally must be entered manually by the competent staff in the system, can the partners quickly and easily online order the materials about the B2B Portal. So the order without media discontinuity is recorded in the system and can be processed faster. With a B2B Portal, it is even possible to work the customers, while making him manage his data itself. This saves the company a lot of time and money and reduces also the error rate. At the same time, the perceived quality of service can be improved to customers and partners by reduced response times and personal contact is limited to questions with genuine need for clarification. Especially for routine tasks and clearly defined processes savings can be realized and reduced lead times.

B2B portals long time mostly were in large groups to use, the theme now also in medium-sized companies more and more comes to the fore. With modern tools such as the industry-neutral portal software Intrexx it is today possible to put a B2B Portal from standard components and configure with graphic editors. As a result, the implementation will be faster and cheaper – the usage becomes profitable even with a low budget. “The new book of business-to-business portals in practice” shows examples of descriptive practice, how to successfully planned and implemented a B2B Portal. The focus is on the applications for medium-sized companies. On the basis of the standard software Intrexx describes typical elements of B2B portals and their benefits for the companies worked out. The author Dr. Gero presser is an expert in the field of Web-based portals and has extensive practical experience with portal projects of any kind. Through the vivid writing, the book is very easy to understand and suitable also for non – professionals. The book is available under books and can be requested under of editors as a free review copy.

There Is A Way To Do It Better: Financing Of Innovation With The VDEB

The VDEB info day 2009 will be held on 28 September in Bonn. Aachen, August 13, 2009. Best bars in New York is often quoted as being for or against this. The VDEB info day 2009 will be held on 28 September in Bonn. Already compiled an extensive and informative lecture program. Still chance to participate with a sponsorship or speeches. “According to the motto of Thomas Alva Edison there’s a way to do it better” are many smaller and medium-sized IT companies drive innovation and identify opportunities in the crisis. New products and customer-oriented solutions can create new profit opportunities for the IT-Mittelstand. To control innovation by the crisis would be in the spirit of the old master of Edison. Edison had realized, an innovation is more than an idea, an innovation is the implementation of an idea in products and services that meet the test of the market. Bill de Blasio has many thoughts on the issue. After its ground-breaking inventions, has shifted the focus of its activities on the implementation and marketing of electrification projects. Without financing, no innovation can have proven themselves in practice. Thomas Alva Edison took the financial means to the electrification of New York. But where is the IT SME the money to finance his ideas? The VDEB info day 2009 is dedicated to answering this question the financing of innovations. After IT-Mittelstand Association since 2008 the alignment of economic stimulus on corporations vehemently criticized, this event in turn is a constructive contribution of the Association for the growth and development of IT medium-sized enterprises. Several presentations of the event are already set, but still it is possible by means of papers and to participate in sponsoring the event. Enterprise 2.0 on course of innovation”is the topic of Emanuel Berry Heath of the TU Dortmund, social Forschungsstelle Dortmund (sfs) and Dirk Brockhaus (Brockhaus software & Consulting AG, Lunen) into the findings of the BMBF research project Integro. Terms and concepts such as open innovation, customer integration and innovation networks reflect individual aspects of new strategies against and learn through the Web technologies and their Usage of enterprise-level a new dynamic. Important suggestions for an innovation-friendly corporate culture can be obtained from the representations to Enterprise 2.0. But after the ideas are formed, substantial funding is needed.

The central innovation programme for SMEs (ZIM) of the Federal Ministry of Economics (BMWi) plans to open a reliable perspective to support their innovation efforts until end of 2013 with an attractive promotion small and medium-sized enterprises, but also the IT middle-class benefits from this promotion? Dr. Jurgen Kuhnlenz will answer these and other questions to the ZIM by the Association of industrial research associations (AIF). Not only about the ZIM, but also about the KfW bank group intends the policy to support the SMEs, in order to prevent a credit crunch. Explain Michael Gottner by KfW is securing employment by enhancing growth 2009″the funding programmes of the KfW, in particular the special programme. Since the KfW loans forgiven by the banks are also an opportunity for critical feedback on the effectiveness of policy measures opens up, not only practical advice to be expected, but there are. The capital of IT companies is to a large extent in the knowledge of its employees. A CD-ROM costs 50 cents, the information stored on this CD-ROM can be worth millions of euros. But, the knowledge of the employees is not included in the equity capital. The Bank’s internal rating according to the stricter guidelines of Basel 2 is accordingly low. As a result, the creditworthiness of IT companies and the negotiating position of the IT companies to the banks is very weak. Modern methods of human resource rating provide arguments for the true value of a company?

Stefanie Muller of the University of Saarland will introduce in the current discussion and treat possible human capital assessment, the Saarbrucker formula and the effect on internal and external stakeholders (banks). If the Debt financing through banks but fail, often represents a viable alternative to the equity financing by shareholders. Particularly since the reform of German corporate law in the fall of 2008, partly considerable risks are associated with this financing but. These are both for the shareholders, but also for the managers of the companies involved. Monika Essers, Attorney at law, represents the risks of shareholder loans, collateralization of shareholder and cash pool in her presentation and gives advice on how to address these risks in practice.
