    Unlocking the Power of Digital Transformation – Success through Transformation!

    The digital transformation of established companies is one of the most important challenges for global business leaders and a key success factor for future business models and talent recruitment.
    In an increasingly competitive market environment driven by networked IT systems, platforms as well as cloud-based solutions, it seems inevitable for companies to evolve their traditional business model towards digitally integrated and innovative value creation.

    “We are not just a typical consulting firm, but an entrepreneurial full-service partner offering a broad spectrum of business innovation and business model transformation” – Bastian Deck, CEO of NOVAZOON.

    NOVAZOON remains owner-managed as an independent company

    Capgemini has appointed our partner company, the Braincourt GmbH – Part of Capgeminia specialist for business intelligence and data science services, on October 7, 2022 – Braincourt will thus become part of the Capgemini Group.

    NOVZAOON GmbH, headquartered in Karlsruhe, Germany, remains independent and owner-managed – Prof. Armin Roth and Bastian Deck take over all shares through a management buy-out. “With the buyout of NOVAZOON, we are continuing the success story as a separate and independent company,” say Prof. Roth and Deck. “We would like to thank our Braincourt colleagues for the great collaboration and wish them all the best for their next stage with Capgemini Group.”

    NOVAZOON was last published by the CIO Applications Europe magazine as one of the ten leading providers in Europe for digital business model transformation. The jury based the award in particular on the innovative methods used for transformation, the deep-tech capabilities applied, and the references of over 30 business model innovations.

    Publication Introduction and implementation of Industry 4.0



    What does a successful implementation of Industry 4.0 look like?

    This book systematically presents the concept, paradigms and relevant technologies of Industrie 4.0 as well as their overall context. Contrary to the common, purely technological and application-oriented approach, the book additionally brings together strategic, tactical and operational levels of consideration into an integrative strand. At the heart of this is a process model that describes the need for action at the strategic and operational levels. A practical case, different Industrie 4.0 use cases and renowned experts from research and practice make this reading interesting for newcomers to the topic, but also for those interested in implementation in middle and upper management who want to gain a new perspective on the complexity of the topic. The glossary makes the book a valuable reference work for the topic of Industry 4.0.

    Publication Holistic Performance Management



    This is how you secure corporate success in the long term!

    What do permanently successful companies do differently? Armin Roth identifies the success factors and uses them to develop the concept of holistic performance management: It integrates the five sub-disciplines of corporate performance management, business process management, project and employee management, and management of holism and the long term into one system. Companies thereby sustainably increase their performance and competitiveness. Management cockpits ensure target-oriented control at the strategic and operational levels.

    For the first time, this integrative approach is presented in this book.
