Digitaltag 2021

Shaping digitization together with fortiss!

The second nationwide Digitaltag will take place on June 18, 2021. The action day offers a platform to highlight various aspects of digitization, to discuss opportunities and challenges and to initiate a broad social dialog with the declared goal of identifyingfuture topics, innovations, opportunities and challenges of digitization.

The State Research Institute of the Free State of Bavaria for software-intensive systems, fortiss, invites to two actions and presents the following video interviews on this occasion:

  • Software engineering is the key discipline in digitalization.
    What are the criteria for good software and software engineering? How can software expertise be better anchored in SMEs? And what does the influx of tech giants mean for Munich as a location and what are the opportunities here?
    Prof. Alexander Pretschner (TU Munich, fortiss) and Dr. Johannes Kroß (fortiss) answer these and other exciting questions in a video interview with Marco Eisenack (MUCBOOK). Additional topics include enthusiasm and creativity for software development, the potential of agile and incremental versus traditional software development, security issues and data protection, and the opportunities of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
  • Shaping the energy transition with software
    Digitization is both a challenge and a key to the success of the energy transition. The coupling of the heat, electricity and mobility sectors, an efficient energy management system and a scalable and stable infrastructure are decisive factors for implementation here. What must policymakers do now? Where do the greatest savings potentials lie? Which solutions can we use now and which will be available to us soon?
    Dr. Markus Duchon (fortiss), Maximilian Irlbeck (Bayern Innovativ), Prof. Thomas Hamacher (TU Munich) and Detlef Malinowsky (IBDM GmbH) clarify these and other interesting questions in a video interview with Marco Eisenack (MUCBOOK).

With the aim of promoting digital participation for all, 27 organizations from the fields of civil society, culture, science, business, welfare and the public sector have joined forces in the "Digital for All" initiative and are hosting the Digitaltag. This year's participants include:
