Digital transformation, Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence - society, politics and the economy are facing enormous challenges. And digitisation doesn’t stop at medical technology. TRACOE is also continuing to work on the digitisation of internal process and structures, in order to be equipped for the demands that tomorrow brings.
"If Germany is to keep pace and help shape these rapid developments, we need to foster innovative ideas and promote the next generation of outstanding young talent, particularly at the interface between business and IT", Dr Thomas Jurisch, managing director of TRACOE medical GmbH and managing partner of INTARGIA Managementberatung GmbH, a leading independent, medium-sized IT management consultancy in Germany, who created the award, is convinced. Thanks to his close connection with INTARGIA and the TARGION science prize, which was launched five years ago, Thomas Jurisch is always in touch with cutting-edge and application-related research results from science and industry, which, not least, can also point the way toward the further development of the company's organisational and process optimisation.
The IT award is under the auspices of Dr Thomas Schäfer, Minister of Finance of the State of Hesse. Research and teaching are represented in the jury by four professors of business IT - Prof. Dr Torsten Eymann from the University of Bayreuth, Prof. Dr Armin Heinzl from Mannheim University, Prof. Dr Thomas Hess from the Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich and Prof. Dr Wolfgang König from the Goethe University in Frankfurt.
This year, for the fifth time, the prize will be awarded for an outstanding dissertation on the subject of strategic information management and digitisation. Read more about TARGION.
