This post is related to 12th IndustryConnect-Workshop.

The CEIR team invites IndustryConnect members to the 12th workshop. This will once again be a closed online workshop with interactive elements, where participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other user companies virtually. On 20th of November 2020, participants can look forward to a short but varied programme on the topic of “Knowledge Base for the Ditigal Workplace”. For this purpose we would like to present our “Knowledge Base”, which is filled with knowledge from more than 5 years of research with our IndustryConnect members. One of many topics from our Knowledge Base and a development from our joint research is the “Social Network of Business Objects (SoNBO)“, which will be presented during this workshop. SoNBO enables a comprehensive view of information in companies and has already been successfully implemented at KOSMOS Verlag.
