What can you do if given less time than you really need to deal with a task – but no additional resources? Our technical architect, Gerold Glaser, was presented precisely with this problem. In order to solve it, he wasted no time at all in restructuring the development process. His method, based on automation and very close cooperation with the customer, is so successful that it has since become our new standard. He explains here in an interview with Michaela Alker how exactly this came to pass and what challenges await application developers in the future.

Porsche Informatik goes art, episode 2

Expressing corporate values through art

“In interaction and collaboration, people need guiding principles and values, preferably a collective self-image, rather like corporate DNA”, were the opening words of CEOs Rainer Trischak and Manfred Immitzer in their eulogy.
