Our approach


The NXTGN approach to digitisation

Digitisation cannot be achieved from 0 to 100 per cent at the push of a button. What is needed is a multitude of small steps towards complete digitalisation. To determine the status quo within a company, we divide it into four levels - from isolated systems to complete digital transformation.

Ansatz Digitalisierung


The levels are divided as follows:


  • Level 1: Isolated

Data is kept in individual silos. Although there are isolated interfaces, there is no continuous data flow between the systems, or only partial and delayed data flow. Accordingly, insights, e.g. in the form of KPIs, can only be gained from the existing subsets.

  • Level 2: Connected

Data is exchanged between the data silos in real time. The BI evaluations access a consolidated database. The evaluations provide insight into the past ("What happened?"). Future forecasts or the use of external sources for data enrichment and the associated predictive analyses do not take place.

  • Level 3: Analyzed

Compared to the Connected level, added value is generated for users here through the use of predictive analyses and machine learning models in order to be able to answer questions such as "What could happen?". The intelligent use of data is accompanied by proactive support for users.

  • Level 4: Transformed

At this level, all business-relevant processes are fully digitalised. In addition to the information and KPIs obtained so far, e.g. from the ERP, CRM system, sensor data from the plants and production processes are also used if necessary. Partners and customers are also fully integrated into the digitalised processes.


What distinguishes our approach from others?

Software before process. This is usually the approach to implementing new business applications. We question this approach - the status quo in the evaluation, customising, integration and further development of business applications.

A good business application landscape ensures that

  • The respective systems deliver lean, performant and user-friendly processes that optimise the overall business process.
  • Each individual process can be optimised without affecting other processes in the company
  • Data is transferred to the right systems at the right time and in the right form, enriching the functional building blocks with relevant information

That's why we clearly say: process before software. All-in-one applications have their raison d'être, but are often not flexible enough to react to dynamic market adjustments. This is where individually scalable, cloud-based microservices come in. Cost-intensive adaptations and overcustomising are avoided and companies are enabled to react agilely to market conditions. This requires a rethink in the evaluation, implementation and integration processes. Not least because today we no longer just let business applications talk to each other. We are also striving for communication between systems, machines and sensors. This cannot be ensured in the "learned" way. Or only in as limited a way as the strategically defined platform allows.
