    CMS with hybrid architecture
    At the end of 2019, Gartner surprised us with the news that, in 2020, there will be no new Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Web Content Management (WCM). According to Gartner, this does not however signal the end of the product category WCM. Today, users expect many other digital channels to be offered alongside a website. All these channels need content and a separate content studio for each channel – will this work?

    UX vs UI vs CX: What’s the difference?
    And why is each so important?
    When it comes to commerce, especially digital commerce, we hear a lot of terms used to describe experience and how it relates to users or customers. These are often used interchangeably and can mean different things to different people.

    Keep moving forward
    Instruments for continuous improvement
    German soccer legend Olli Kahn has said it for decades: No matter how well you are doing and how successful you are today, you have to keep working on yourself and improving if you want to be at the forefront tomorrow. And while he previously used this mantra to drive only himself and his immediate teammates forward, now he is applying it to an entire club, which is today more of a small corporation.

    The way out of the comfort zone
    Personal change and corporate transformation
    Transformation initiatives often lead to radical changes that typically affect the whole company. Transformation is about much more than the implementation of new processes or even “just” IT solutions.

    Bob Marley warned us!
    My fellow vinyl fans will, I’m sure, be familiar with the album “Babylon by Bus” by Bob Marley, a co-founder of reggae music and arguably its greatest ambassador. In my brain, however, Babylon is also associated with the impossibility of understanding each other without a common language. And what person who has ever had any contact with information technology does not think of data connections when they hear the word “bus”?

    Shopping may be more online - or offline?
    High expectations for on-site service
    How do you decide whether to buy online or offline? You want to shop in local retail stores to support business in the city center while enjoying the city buzz – because you love the variety and the hustle and bustle and wouldn’t miss it for the world... But in the evening, smartphone in hand, you end up ordering the product online – right?
