Das ist die entscheidende Frage für den Erfolg im modernen digitalen Business - Produkte zu schaffen, die nachhaltig, innovativ und ... skalierbar sind!

During this Event we will present / Während des Events präsentieren wir:

  • Key Note - Scalable in each way and dimension?
  • Business Cases: six speakers presenting their “scalability challenges” from the topics below: (6x10Minutes)

How can the scalability of digital products be influenced by:

I.Systems architecture

  • What strategy is needed today for scaling the software?
  • What technological requirements are needed today to create an infrastructural basis for globally scalable digital products?

II.Organisational structure and implemented technology

  • Which decision-making and organisational criteria are good for scalability?
  • Which basic technologies and frameworks are well scalable?

III.UX-Design & Usability of the product

  • Designing a digital product addressing needs of diverse user groups
  • Support quick user growth and their conversion to permanent, regular users with successful interaction design & usability

  • Audience Interaction: Identify your relevant “scalability challenge”
  • Mini-Workshop: Experts and attendees will exchange opinions about challenges of scalability discussing:
    • infrastructure/systems architecture vs organisation/technology
    • organisation/implemented technology vs usability/design
  • Networking with Snacks & Drinks

18:45 - Audience Interaction: Identify your relevant “scalability challenge”

19:00 - Mini-Workshops: Experts and attendees will exchange opinions about challenges of scalability in two groups:

    • 1. infrastructure/systems architecture vs organisation/technology

What: Kickoff scalable architectures

This workshop will help you gain more confidence in building scalable and versatile architecture design. I will show you how adopting microservices improves scalability in many dimensions. During this workshop we will first use as an example HR platform. I will walk you through architecture and technology stack of the real project. Then we will together look at hypothetical FinTech project. In the scope of the workshop will sketch architecture and highlight major technical assumptions.

19:30 In addition: Networking with Snacks & Drinks


With digital products that are scalable and properly designed from the beginning, expanding and serving a larger multi-user market will be easier. Non-scalable products could mean losing potential revenues though.

Software is a classic example of a scalable solution, since it costs real money to build the first copy, but unlimited additional copies can be quickly cloned for almost no cost. But if you think scalability is all about developing software, you are wrong. Digital Products go through different life cycle stages: they are created and launched based on users & customers needs, they develop, grow, become mature… and eventually they die as well.

Businesses need to define their digital products. For a restaurant this could be a delivery service platform, for a bank a mobile banking app, for a stationery shop – an online shop. Such products are often identified through distinct customer needs and developed based on technologies provided at the time of their creation. Thus some digital products have been existing around for many years and even decades…

- Which infrastructure and technologies are suitable for modern digital products?

- How does design & usability need to adapt to changing customer behaviour when outgrowing a core user group?

- How will improvement to these digital products be measured?
