Digital Agenda — German IT Industry Ready for the Ride?

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

The IT sectors in Germany and in the United States are facing tremendous challenges to cope with growing traffic demands, cyber security threats, new technologies and privacy issues, while coping with sometimes razor-thin margins.

Many of its current IT players may not survive or have already disappeared. More mergers are likely. The ambitious Digital Agenda promoted by Berlin and Brussels will bring significant changes for US companies and investors. Will German companies make a comeback and become globally competitive?

In this seminar, the speakers will analyze the state-of-play in Germany, the likelihood of new players emerging, and discuss recent initiatives to safeguard an Open Internet.
