The Eucon Group, digitalization partner for the real estate, automotive and insurance industries, is collaborating with the South Westphalia University of Applied Sciences in the field of technology scouting. Students from the “Business Administration with Informatics” program identify and evaluate relevant IT trends that the digital medium-sized company from Münster will also use to gain inspiration for new digital solutions and business models.
The project runs from October 2021 to February 2022 and is supervised by Professor Ralf Plattfaut and PhD student Marie Godefroid. The approximately 15 participating students are working closely with experts from Eucon, providing them with feedback on their interim results in digital meetings every two weeks. This serves as the basis to initiate the next phase of this agile project.
Sven Krüger, CEO of the Eucon Group, says: “The partnership with the South Westphalia University of Applied Sciences is a win-win situation for everyone because it broadens our horizons and our network, while giving the students the opportunity to gain insights into practical applications. We benefit from scientific insights that can be used to generate new value-added potential and innovations for our customers.”
Prof. Dr. Ralf Plattfaut, Professor of Business Informatics and Head of the Process Innovation & Automation Lab at the South Westphalia University of Applied Sciences, explains: “For our students, this collaboration brings together specialist scientific expertise with a hands-on approach and makes buzzwords like hyperautomation, digital twins or augmented analytics easier to grasp. We are very much looking forward to this exciting knowledge transfer.”
