Putting value creation first for more impactful customer centricity

In this white paper, we examine what customer centricity means, what kind of value it creates, and ways in which companies can address this key issue. The implementation practices outlined here are based on lessons learned and proven approaches taken in customer projects.

Human-centered medical device development

Contrary to what many believe, this is not about cosmetics, about creating beautiful interfaces or sleek contemporary designs. It is about focusing on the core question: How do I build the product that it serves its purpose effectively and efficiently, yet still inspires and delights? Learn in our whitepaper what activities you should consider in the human-centered development process and how to engage real users right from the start.

Illustration: Programmierung in RUST

RUST – the next evolution in embedded software development

Not only the software complexity but also the validation processes become more complex. New solutions are needed to achieve efficiency as well as the necessary quality. One possible answer to this can be the use of a programming language like Rust. Learn in our whitepaper why Rust has the great potential to become the language of modern software development.

Master the energy transition with digital fleet management

With the energy transition and the requirements for saving CO2 and controlling air pollution, electromobility is becoming increasingly established. This transition to electric vehicles poses challenges and presents opportunities for fleet operators. Learn more about the digital twin as a possible answer to the challenges of the energy transition for fleets in our white paper.

Illustration: Entwicklung und Überprüfung von Software

Continuous x with software-in-the-loop methodology

This paper highlights the latest trend in software verification and validation research. It explains the actual possibilities to virtualize the system under test for software tests and explains steps towards off-premise testing solutions.

Illustration: Electric car charged at home with solar power

Future-ready neighborhood energy management

A decentralized energy supply in neighborhoods (as a form of structured urban development) enables largely self-sufficient and cost-effective operation – under the condition of intelligent planning and utilization. Discover in our white paper how software can be very beneficial during both the building and operating phases.

State-of-the-art software development in medical engineering

In software development, the path to a successful software release is generally anything but linear.  Runtime errors and security gaps detected too late but also obsolete tools and methods can become showstoppers. The whitepaper provides an overview of the most important ingredients for modern software development in medical technology.

Illustration: Auto fährt auf der Straße, Cloud am Himmel

From classic software integration to co-integration

The classic manual approach to software integration and validation is simply not up to the unprecedented challenges posed by increasing connectivity and automation. This why the transformation of software integration towards co-integration platforms is in full swing.
