Was sind die wichtigsten Faktoren für den Erfolg als CIO?

Run: Sicherstellung der laufenden Systeme
Build: Definition einer agilen IT und der digitalen Transformation im Unternehmen mit der Bereitstellung von innovativen technischen Lösungen für die Verbesserung der aktuellen Prozesse sowie die Schaffung der idealen Voraussetzungen für zukünftige Geschäftsmodelle.

Transformation: Die Wandlung der aktuellen IT Organisation in eine zukünftige, agile Funktion, die Geschäftsbereiche, genauso wie neue Business Modelle und Innovationen im Unternehmen vorantreibt.

Artificial Intelligence in Procurement – From Insight to Action
Dr. Marcell Vollmer
December 23, 2019
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is expected to have a more profound impact on humanity than electricity or fire, according to Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai. In the manufacturing business heavy investments are being made in AI. It is predicted to affect every step within the supply chain process in future, enabling more efficient procurement activities than ever before. Numerous vendors already claim to operate with this intelligent technology. But the reigning buzzword is not always understood, used and promoted correctly, which leads to confusion both by buyers and sellers. This calls for a clarification of the terminologies around AI, before taking a look at how this impacts procurement.

The Future of Robotics Process Automation (RPA)
Dr. Marcell Vollmer
November 30, 2019
We’re just at the beginning of the 4th industrial wave. The next level of automation will be unlocked when machine learning capabilities and artificial intelligence become smart enough to deploy RPA intelligently.

But to look at automation as the be-all and end-all is to miss the bigger picture–one where automation is only a single part of achieving process excellence. It’s a part that needs to be orchestrated in the context of that broader vision, alongside other tools that deliver what RPA alone cannot: visibility, intelligent optimization and a direct impact on overarching business outcomes.

NEO Keynote - Celonis: Process Mining
Dr. Marcell Vollmer
February 25, 2020
About the event
Every business is a collection of core processes; they’re the base element of business operations. But as companies are digitizing every aspect of their businesses, core processes have become complex operational machinery —too fast, frequent, interconnected and distributed to manage manually.
That’s where Process Mining and Celonis start. With its market-leading software, Celonis helps businesses to become frictionless and superfluid. It delivers deep visibility and control of individual processes, the relationships between them, and the outcomes they deliver.

Digital Supply Chains and business networks - a conversation with Marcell Vollmer
The Digital Supply Chain Podcast
July 04, 2019
In this first "real" episode of the Digital Supply Chain podcast I invited my friend and colleague, SAP Chief Digital Officer Marcell Vollmer (@mvollmer1 on twitter) to be my guest on the show.

We mined Marcell's deep knowledge of the Supply Chain space starting off with an easy question at 01:35 where I asked Marcell to give his definition of supply chain.

The at 03:06 I asked Marcell to give some examples of digital supply chains he has seen, and the advantages they have achieved for their organisations.

Then at 07:20 I asked Marcell to talk a little about the rise we are currently seeing in the importance of business networks.

At 12:37 I asked Marcell how can business networks help ensure that a company's supply chain is free of things like slavery/child labour, conflict minerals, or carbon intensive energy?

At 15:53 I asked Marcell if he were advising a company thinking of digitising their supply chain what would he advise them to do as first steps?

And finally, at 19:16 I asked Marcell if he had any final advice he wanted to impart to companies who are embarking on digital supply chain journeys...

Technology will change the game
Technology has driven a new wave of productivity by digitising key financial and business processes and enabling collaboration across the organisation and this trend will continue. Paper based purchase orders and invoices will become a thing of the past, replaced by end-to-end automated transactions. But more important, best-in-class organisations will fuel the next wave, leveraging business networks to extend these processes and systems beyond the four walls of the enterprise and create a virtual ‘extraprise’ of partners into a shared community executing improved, fully automated, and coordinated processes in a more informed way than in the past.
