Supported by the Digital Initiative, the competitiveness of Bavarian companies will be maintained in the future.

The Digital initiative creates market access

She does not start from the Bavarian metropolis of Munich, but deliberately addresses the regional markets. Hidden champions and larger medium-sized companies are located in many districts. The mid-sized companies with a size of approx. 50+ employees are another target group.

In compliance with the requirements, the appropriate interlocutors are brought together. Due to the continuous visibility of the Digital initiative in the region, users and providers should be connected.

"The goal of the Digital initiative is to be a neutral point of contact for companies in the interests of the" economy 4.0. "To support the digital transformation primarily in the SME sector with help and advice and to accompany the way to the digital corporate structure and culture."
(S. Zimmermann, Project Leader Initiative Digital)

The central themes of the Digital initiative are:

  • Networking (fiber, bandwidth and cloud solutions) of the sites and connection to a data center and networking in production and other areas
  • Data Centers: Outsourcing and Storage, PaaS and IaaS Solutions
  • Collect data, save, evaluate, monetize, increase customer loyalty etc.
  • Data security and in particular the requirements of the new General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)
  • IoT platforms for specific solutions
  • System integrators and IT system houses in the regions
  • CRM

"Those who do not take digitization seriously are in danger of their lives."
(Prof. Dr. Martin Viessmann, Viessmann Werke GmbH & Co. KG)
