Do you know if people in our company have solved already the problem you are trying to solve? Do you always who is responsible for handling a special issue at work? Is it easy to find documents at work?
As companies grow, the volume of internal information about projects, processes, and events only increases. That information is stored in various systems and data sources, and often they can not be integrated into one universal storage. But what is the value of all that data, if a company employee is not able to find relevant documents or materials?
OWN Agents help to solve this problem by providing a way to easily search in different internal data sources like file storages, ERP systems, CRMs—at once. OWN Agents can be deployed on the customer’s infrastructure—so that no data leaves the company’s internal network.
A New Management Model
In close collaboration with our partners in the Teamin project, including research organizations such as the Institute of Management and the Institute of Production Science of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics of the University Hannover, we currently research and develop a model for the future of management.
At the example our application partners, Berlin engineering firm Aucoteam and Sartorius, a leading industry supplier for the biopharmaceutical industry, we build a model for integrating Digital Agents in organizations. We adapt management methods to the challenges of digitization and Industry 4.0. OWN Agents, as well as other tools, enable a faster, more efficient and more transparent cooperation and interaction between employees and managers. In addition, the project develops and evaluates guidelines and suitable change management and competence development methods for introducing the tools to work practice.
The Teamin project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the European Social Fund (ESF) as part of the “Future of Work” program (funding code: 02L18A140) and is supported by the Karlsruhe Project Management Agency (PTKA).
