goetzpartners supports Year of the Monkey conference in Munich

With the aim of driving digitisation and innovation in Germany, goetzpartners is again acting as one of the main sponsors of the Year of the Goat conference series this year. The event, which was launched successfully last year, will be all about monkeys in 2016 and is due to take place on 21 April in Munich under the motto "Year of the Monkey – The Digital Transformation and Innovation Festival".

Our digital experts Dr Wolfram Römhild and Marc Ziegler have been invited to speak on the topic of "Building IoT-driven business platforms – next level of Industrial Internet". Their presentation will focus on the profitability of IoT platforms and provide best-practice examples of process automation all the way to cognitive intelligence. In addition, they will moderate an interactive workshop entitled "The Platform Canvas – Learn how to build platform business models in 60 minutes", which will deal with new approaches for successful business platforms. You can read more about this topic in our publication "Industrial Internet of things".

Before the event, the organisers wanted to know how goetzpartners' speakers let loose their personal "inner monkey". To find out how Marc Ziegler does this and why he looks forward to meeting many "digital monkeys" in person, watch the video below.
