The Digital Evolution.

Bechtle Competence Days 2018.


There’s no escaping digitalisation. While some changes can be made steadily, others are catching up with us at an incredible pace. And it’s been clear for some time that our work environments (among other things) are becoming increasingly efficient, digital and reliant on AI. Helping you to take digitalisation step by step—while not missing a beat—are the 14th Bechtle Competence Days, taking place early next year and featuring a strong, future-oriented programme.

How does digitalisation impact business? How can we use it to our advantage? What have we mastered, and how far do we still have to go? Shifting landscapes are a challenge even for the seasoned navigator. The Bechtle Competence Days are great starting point for finding your bearings and drawing a map towards your future. We get down to business with proven approaches and concrete solutions to the real challenges in IT. Some 90 expert presentations and more than 60 booths put you in touch with the breadth and depth of digitalisation. 

Future-oriented solutions ready for your business.

Dive into a range of topics from collaboration and cyber security to hyper-converged infrastructures and software-defined everything. Learn about best-practice approaches and discover cutting-edge technology to make your life easier. We’ll show you the building blocks both for the immediate and the not so distant future.
