Electric vehicles that automatically see to all their own services on schedule, refrigerators with a Mensa membership that beat grand masters of Go in their spare time, or chatbots that can talk the hind leg off a donkey... Advancing digitalization not only seems to break through the boundaries of feasibility, and often even surpass our wildest dreams, but occasionally also pursues dubious aims. As yesterday’s science fiction frequently ends up in electronic recycling bins after just a brief fad, we clearly need to find the right way forward. Smart technologies penetrate all areas of life and inspire companies in all sectors to try out new things - in procurement, production, service and sales. Meta-Level Software AG from the Saarland region in Germany specializes exclusively in this line of development and is showcasing customized smart solutions for software services, Industry 4.0, web & workflow and GIS at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover. An inspiring range of case studies shows how they can optimize business processes and help implement new business models.
Meta-Level Software AG provides a very wide range of services to guide industrial companies through the transition to smart factory processes. This can be anything from using business intelligence tools to develop a scanning solution for tracking tools or workpieces, preparing, analyzing and visualizing production data, or even preparing specialized modules for a wide variety of uses on the shop floor. Besides this, Meta-Level can transform corporate applications that still use outdated technologies into state-of-the-art, future-ready solutions. In all areas of work, the strength of the business model that Meta-Level pursues lies in customization and flexibility.
