Innovation Labs that work - TTN Event Review

Great ideas, people and discussions with one of the most diverse audiences we have yet seen at our TTN events. Strategists to Designers, CEO’s to developers, all shared the same goal: to create new value.
When over 40 people met at the Design Offices in Munich, they gathered not just to be inspired by the talk of Daniel Egger about the Future of Innovation Labs, but also to discuss their experiences in breakout sessions.
Innovation is about an ecosystem, collaboration and diversity and the experience of the session was built upon those pillars, creating an enlightening evening.
Emphasising the urgency to rethink organisational innovation structures, Daniel Egger, (http://www.danielegger.com), first spoke about the many pain points that can be experienced when running an Innovation Lab.

Attendees proceeded to share their challenges and expectations in a collaborative working session regarding what organisations need and how they should set up an agile and disruptive innovation structure.
Egger continued after an inspiring networking break, passing on research and experiences about how to frame the key challenges of Innovation Labs and his book “Future Value Generation”. He argues that the innovation structures in organisations need to balance the present challenges with future opportunities and that neither incremental nor disruptive innovation on its own are economically sustainable. It is this polarity that enriches the Innovation Lab and reduces organisational friction. The present creates value so that the future can exist... and the future offers a strategic north and new possible opportunities. Egger argues, to deliver new value, we need to incorporate innovation and design, foresight and strategy in one Innovation Lab.

Innovation












Tragically, the night had to eventually come to an end, although many were still gathered around the free beers, flowing ideas; still learning, still heatedly discussing, and it’s fair to say that everyone is looking forward to the next TTN event in Munich.
Thank you to all our attendees and thanks to Daniel Egger who hosted the event.

How to Set up a Microservices from Scratch (as a Greenfield Project) by Slobodan Utvić

In this video from Slobodan Utvić (Co-founder & Lead Architect at ComTravo), he looks at Microservices from a first hand experience. Slobodan introduces why he chose to directly implement Microservices as opposed to the conventional 'start-up way'. He then looks at his step-by-step plan, his progress so far and if there have been any variations from his initial plan.
Finally, Slobodan looks at some of the issues and what the future looks like for his Microservices.

Bio
I like building and fiddling with things. Whether it may be a LEGO friends elves forest castle, complex event driven architectures, Microservices or just chasing memory leaks, I want to see them work and be used. After more than 14 years in development, I finally found a happy place with nodeJS and 0mq.

Previously, I've designed and developed, end-to-end, a system that analyses over 1.5 billion events per month in real time. That led to 6 billion requests per day on dsp (peak 150k queries per second).
Currently, I'm building a smart b2b travel solution in Berlin.

"Erfolg hängt nicht nur von neuen Technologien ab" -Ein Rückblick auf das TTN Event in München zum Thema Industrie 4.0-

Das Technology Transformation Network veranstaltete letzte Woche ein Event in München zum Thema “Technische Innovation in der Industrie 4.0”, in dem sich Branchenexperten über Fragen wie „Welche Herausforderungen bringen Industrie 4.0 - Projekte mit sich?“ oder „Wo sind die nächsten Innovationen zu erwarten?“ austauschten.

Walter Schillings, Management Consultant bei Conlab Unternehmerverbund, war Moderator für den Abend und hat das Event wie folgt zusammengefasst:

„Einig war sich die Runde, dass Industrie 4.0 keinesfalls auf einzelne IT-Projekte reduziert werden kann. Aufgrund der damit einhergehenden, grundlegenden und raschen Veränderung der Märkte, der Dienstleistungserbringung bzw. Produktionsverfahren sowie der Kommunikationsnetze sollten sich Unternehmen auf den Weg machen. Nach sorgfältiger Analyse von Prozessen, Wertschöpfungsketten und Fähigkeiten sollte die Unternehmensstrategie für die eigene digitale Transformation erarbeitet und diese im Rahmen eines Digitalisierungs-Programms umgesetzt werden. Industrie 4.0 ist daher zuerst eine Management-Aufgabe und der Erfolg hängt nicht nur von neuen Technologien ab sondern auch vom Management selbst. Es gilt funktionelles Silo-Denken und Wagenburg-Mentalität zu überwinden und prozessorientiert zu denken und zu handeln.

Da kaum ein mittelständisches Unternehmen über die hierfür erforderlichen Ressourcen und Kompetenzen verfügt, können diese am besten durch Beauftragung externer Berater eingebracht werden. Hierdurch wird auch der wichtige „Blick – von – außen“ eingebracht und die Aktualität sichergestellt.”

Einen herzlichen Dank an all unsere Experten, Gäste und Moderator, die das Event zu einem Erfolg gemacht haben.
