Companies that migrate to Office 365 face two huge challenges: their employees need to suddenly use cloud services and, even more seriously, they need to familiarise themselves with some new collaborative work methods. Beck et al. will manage the entire migration for you and help to establish a mindset for digitally-supported teamwork to make use of all the benefits the new platform has to offer.More about Enable Digital Work
Digital Work Hub
The Digital Work Hub is the first point of contact for digital work within a company. Like a competence centre, employees consult the hub, if they have any questions or need help with digital tasks. The Digital Work Hub provides information material, actively supports coaches and passes on experiences. A helpdesk designed as a walk-in lounge rounds off this digital means of entry developed by Beck et al..More about Enable Digital Work
Digital Workout “Collaboration Scouts”
We learn how to work digitally in a hands-on approach rather than in classrooms. First, we try things out in a protected environment (workout) before implementing our ideas into our daily work supported by colleagues who have a little more experience. Beck et al designs, coaches and accompanies this collaborative type of immersive learning. This way of learning ensures that digital work/behaviour is embedded very quickly into the ‘muscle memory’ becoming as automatic as breathing, swimming or putting one foot in front of another.More about Enable Digital Work
Digital Maturity Check
The Digital Maturity Check helps you identify where your company can start to improve its abilities in the fields of organisation, technology and data with respect to the digital toolset, skillset and mindset.More about Enable Digital Work

Modernisation of the cloud
Legacy IT is not always a bad thing. Just because services or applications are in the cloud does not necessarily mean that performance is better. We show you how to enter the cloud world and why this is worth your while – regardless of your starting position, but always with the goal of being as effective as possible.More about Shape a Flexible IT
Cloud computing quickly becomes unmanageable. If various services are procured from different providers, or are even mixed with on-premise applications, it is especially important that there are clear (central) guidelines and structures that ensure compliance with the rules. Thanks to its experience with many cloud projects, Beck et al. offers support on how to create solid structures without becoming top heavy.More about Shape a Flexible IT
Serverless & Container
Serverless computing and container virtualisation bring about very granular, independent and elastic components that behave like microservices. Business applications comprised in this way are also very flexible and can be easily modified. However, the development and operation of these many ‘moving parts’ pose huge challenges to companies. Our specialists help you to master them.More about Shape a Flexible IT
Hybrid Cloud Environments
Hybrid cloud environments, i.e. a mix of IT infrastructures within the computer centre with infrastructures of various cloud providers, make the IT structure of a company more flexible, scalable and ultimately less expensive. But they are more complex. In particular, communication and collaboration effort increases. We can help you realise your ideal operating model for the hybrid cloud world.More about Shape a Flexible IT
AI based research
Checking whether applications and cloud services, desktops and networks function smoothly is one of the more tedious tasks carried out by IT operations and the service desk. This task is only really smart, if the monitoring acts proactively and counters potential bottlenecks and malfunctions. It then has an actual impact on business because uninterrupted IT operations are much more cost-effective and efficient. Beck et al. makes your monitoring smart.More about Form Data to Results
Social Media Intelligence (with NLP)
For some time, classic analysis methods and conventional algorithms have proven inadequate for publicly accessible information from social media and other sources. We simply cannot see the woods for trees. Beck et al. uses AI and natural language processing (NLP) to analysis this myriad of data and find out, for instance, what is actually being said about companies, trends, technologies and political decisions in social media.More about Form Data to Results
This stands for artificial Intelligence (for) Operations. Similar to predictive maintenance, it monitors all operations in the company and predicts potential failures and bottlenecks so that corrective action can be taken before irregularities occur. Beck et al. helps companies to implement the monitoring system and also to define the relevant criteria.More about Form Data to Results
The alarm bus is based on the intelligent security, analytics and monitoring platform Splunk. This Beck et al. cloud service provides an overview of the state of your IT landscape in real time, forecasts future system behaviour and, if there is a threat of nonconformities, it sounds an alarm. This service can also be used for machines and production lines that are connected to the Internet.More about Form Data to Results
Digital transformation in the aviation industry: Evolutionary instead of disruptive
Beck et al. developed and implemented a concept for a large aerospace group that enables staff to learn digital work quickly and also spreads the know-how almost virally.See case
Digital services: the seeds of success
The digital transformation is in full swing in the agricultural sector, where several spectacular achievements have already been made in the field of digitalisation, including the digital service platform myKWS, which has been developed by the international seed specialist KWS SAAT. The platform is a prime example of a modern cloud project that ensures greater sustainability in agriculture. It just goes to show how a customer (KWS), cloud service provider (Beck et al.) and a provider (Amazon Web Services) can all work hand in hand to provide digital services to a large target market (farmers around the world).See case

of the existing data into the MS-SQL server provided for the PaaS.
Shape a Flexible IT.
The aim was to provide an environment on AWS, which could export web services securely into the Internet, making it easy for customer to use, and could also manage the domains and certificates, and delegate as much administrative effort as possible to AWS by using existing services. Also, data migration methods were to be provided that could specifically transfer data in SQL servers to the AWS platform.
The project started with an analysis of the infrastructure sizing, the SLAsRTO/RPO, to develop an appropriate recovery strategy and then derive the backup strategy. A SOW was then developed based on these strategies and the respective security and compliance requirements. Its functionality and incurred costs were checked against AWS and Azure and the comparison was presented to the customer as a decision base. After AWS was chosen, an account with corresponding VPC was developed in the Frankfurt Region and the necessary services were configured accordingly. To this end, a cloud formation and/or Terraform was used in some areas to allow ‘Infrastructure as a code’ to be used in case of recovery to accelerate the creation of the services.
Today, Betaseed uses a very solid but flexible service that meets all requirements and was completed on time and on budget. Farmers can simply register for the program, collect Betapoints and exchange these for bonuses.
Beck et al. has impressed us over and over again with their extensive expertise from conception to introduction, big data to sociology and from implementation to adoption. This interdisciplinary competence, coupled with the involvement in digital networks (which ensures extremely fast learning) is just why the team is so well prepared for the complex tasks in the digital age.Harald Schirmer

Above all, the topic of Digital Transformation and Workplace needs the right mindset to understand where the real challenges lie in the digital age. Siegfried Lautenbacher and his team from Beck et al. can convince here with the right mix of professional competence and the right attitude. The ability to apply this across countries and cultures made them an important partner in the introduction of a global ESN. We also received important impetus in the conception and implementation of our social support strategy, which allowed us to provide flexible and cost-effective support for the cloud-based environment.Hans-Jürgen Sturm
