A completely new experience for actesy and our team:
To be a winner without having won the Diamond 2020.
Peter Imthurn VRP of actesy AG explains why this is so.
We were allowed to fight for the diamond in the last 2 months at the diamond starting field as a nominated startup. The Startfeld Diamond gives a young company the right cut. In cooperation with the St. Galler Kantonalbank, Startfeld, the regional network for start-ups and innovations, the Young Entrepreneur Award 2020 was announced for the ninth time. In a pre-selection process, an expert jury selected five finalists from around 50 start-ups. From preliminary clarification to implementation, St. Galler Kantonalbank and Startfeld supported the participants with valuable tips, tools and products.
Congratulations to matriq AG, the winner of the Diamond 2020, even though we would have loved to win ourselves, it was well deserved. Compliments also to the KB, Startfeld and the jury and to everyone in front of and behind the scenes and last but not least to the finalists. We did not win and are still the winners. We were able to profit a lot from the competent jury and their inputs and critical questions and learned a lot from the professionals in the coaching meetings – even if via video conference. An extraordinary battle under difficult “Corona-conditions”. The organizers have conducted a great competition.
Thanks for letting us be part of it.
The media frenzy and the interest in our actesy metadata framework that was triggered by it more than exceeded our wildest expectations. Thanks to the starting field of Diamonds, the media presence associated with it and the great contribution of TVO, we got a inmense media and attention presence that we never expected.
As a spin-off of the University of St. Gallen, we have of course also started word of mouth to an unprecedented degree.
No CEO, no CTO and no CFO wants to be left behind when it comes to solving digitization projects more easily, faster and with much lower risks than before. Everyone finally wants to tackle the challenges of digitization quickly, sustainably and cost-effectively. Nobody wants to “interface” their systems with old technologies from the last millennium.
You all know it from business or holiday travel, at the moment there is not much demand for it but it will come back. In a hotel in another country which plug fits your mobile phone? Which volts or heart are in the network here? There are travel adapters for this.
actesy does exactly the same with different software and business systems on the data and business process level. actesy lets the most different systems communicate with each other as if they were one single system. Thus, the different systems can be integrated into a business process even across companies.
Why is this such a big challenge?
Today’s system landscape in companies or organizations often has 100 or more business systems which basically do not communicate with each other and also cannot use the data basis mutually in a reasonable way.
