Leitfaden Role Model »Digital Design«
Software is everywhere: It is being used in cars, planes, mobile phones, household appliances, movies and games. Thus, software is an essential part of the digital transformation. The development of high-quality and safe software is central to all economic areas, e.g. Industry 4.0, healthcare, energy supply, mobility, service industry as well as the public sector. Accordingly, the ability to develop high-quality software is a core competency that determines the future viability of Germany as a business location.
The task force »Software Designers« has used this situation as an opportunity as well as a starting point to reflect on new ways and necessities that the software development needs to adopt in the course of the digital transformation. The present document describes the outcome of these considerations, which have emerged from the discourse with numerous companies, academic and research institutions as well as the interested public.
