05.06.2019: Keynote about the opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises in digitalization at NiedersachsenMetall.

The employers’ association NiedersachsenMetall  has set itself the goal of supporting small and medium-sized enterprises in their digitalization. Of the companies with fewer than 500 employees, only 25 percent have launched digital transformation initiatives to date. Dr. Jens-Uwe Meyer encouraged the entrepreneurs to seize the opportunities offered by digitisation.

“Thank you for the great speech! They have impressively shown how small and medium-sized businesses can become digital winners”.

Dr. Volker Schmidt, Chief Executive Officer Niedersachsen Metall

Internet entrepreneur Jens-Uwe Meyer explained how important it is for medium-sized and small companies to keep up with the digital change. “The question about digitalization today is no longer: Will all this really happen? It is: How can I use it?” Whether 5G, artificial intelligence, robotics or industry 4.0 – customers would now expect even small companies to do what they are offered by large corporations. This starts with web shops, immediate order confirmations by e-mail or concrete delivery dates and ends with an evaluation of the company on the web. Those who want to remain competitive should not hesitate. But: “Don’t take on long and expensive monster projects, try things out, make mistakes quickly and learn from them”.
