Scientific Advisory Board
            

With the Scientific Advisory Board, Software AG has a body that gives it a scientific perspective on technology trends. The research discourse complements Software AG's strategic development and product planning. First and foremost, our customers benefit from this.
The members of the Advisory Board include representatives from science and research.

                    Prof. Dr. Reinhard Schütte
                

Professor of Business Informatics and Integrated Information Systems, University of Duisburg-Essen

Prof. Schütte explains why it is particularly important in times of crisis to initiate investments in new IT technologies. He also talks about faulty investments in IT and unused IT potential.

01:08: Software AG benefits from your scientific expertise in IT systems in organizations. In turn, what do you value about the exchange and advisory role on the Scientific Advisory Board?

02:05: Corona, supply bottlenecks, exploding energy prices: Why is it important to initiate investments in new IT technologies right now?

03:19: In your book, you write that the risk of faulty investments in ITsystems is increasing, and that possible potential of IT remains untapped. Can you describe this phenomenon in more detail?

04:24: Is digitization driving transformation in German companies, or is transformation driving more digitization?

                    Dr. Harald Schöning
                

Vice President Research Software AG

The impulses of the pioneering scientists and the innovations from the research projects are an extremely fruitful combination. Dr. Harald Schöning names concrete technological and application fields where one benefits from the other and, finally, Software AG.

01:08: Harald, what do you appreciate about the exchange and consultations in the Scientific Advisory Board?

01:48: You gain insights into a wide variety of technology fields on a daily basis through the research projects. What are the current focal points of your funding activities?

2:28: What points of contact are there with Software AG?

                    Dr. Stefan Sigg
                

Chief Product Officer and Member of the Management Board, Software AG

Dr. Stefan Sigg explains the importance of the Scientific Advisory Board for the future direction of Software AG.  He points out decisive developments from computer science research that can be a driving force for the industry.

01:03: Stefan, the establishment of a Scientific Advisory Board five years ago was particularly close to your heart. In which respects has Software AG benefitted from the scientific expertise in the advisory board?

02:48: Take us a bit into the concrete scientific discourse. What topics or technologies are on this panel's agenda right now?

03:25: Are there any developments in the field of informatics research that you find particularly exciting and could be a driving force of innovation for the industry?

                    University Lecture Dr. Christoph Strnadl
