IDT "Di­gital Ma­tur­ity" Quickcheck

And what is your company's digital maturity level?

By answering ten questions, you get an initial overview of the current state and the need for action for your company. The tool focuses primarily on Industrie 4.0 aspects, such as the implementation of digital business models and processes, the involvement of employees in the digital transformation of the company, or the degree of digitization of services and the customer interface. The online tool was developed by professors Manfred Plechaty and Dr. Klaus Lang on behalf of Minnosphere GmbH and was used in a study by the Institut für angewandte Arbeitswissenschaft e. V. (Ifaa), which looked at ten leading tools for determining the maturity of the degree of digitization.
