VÖSI voices

“Networking, digitalisation and artificial intelligence are on everyone’s to eat. We’ve made Gartner’s technology trend forecast for “Autonomous Things, Drive and Disruption” the motto of Software Day 2020. The Austrian software industry is an extremely vibrant and diverse industry – with exciting ideas, innovations and developments. Domestic IT research is also impressive. The Austrian Software Day serves to make visible and exchange, to discuss applications in practice, to explore optimization potential and to better network the industry” VÖSI President Peter Lieber and owner SparxSystems Software,
“The VÖSI Software Day brings together many experts from the IT industry in just one day. Of course, InfraSoft has been here as a sponsor, exhibitor and speaker since the beginning. The fact that Software Day attracts more interested parties every year – both on the exhibitor side and among visitors – shows very clearly how important and close to the pulse of the times the topics presented there are. This year’s software day motto “Autonomous Things, Drive and Disruption” offers a cutting-edge and at the same time very wide field for speakers who want to deal with this topic.” Peter Fleischmann, VÖSI Board member and CEO at InfraSoft, Picture: © Infrasoft
“Digital transformation today determines our lives and the economy. Assistive technologies, self-acting things and beings such as virtual colleagues (bots) already have an influence today and will play an even greater role in the future. Software Day 2020 offers the opportunity to deal with this disruptive change, innovations and new ideas together. But the focus should always be on people. We should open up to new technologies, discuss opportunities constructively and critically – but above all, we should not be afraid of them.” Nahed Hatahet, VÖSI Board member and CEO at HATAHET, Picture: © 2019 HATAHET
“The IT Entrepreneurs Day is looking forward to a very special partnership with THE VÖSI Software Day in 2020. The IT Entrepreneurs’ Day aims to add an essential topic to the IT industry: the management of IT companies. The motto of the IT Entrepreneurs’ Day is “from IT entrepreneurs to IT entrepreneurs”. In 2020, all visitors can look forward to big topics in our track: agility in IT management, the digital corporate world and the implementation of successful leadership cultures in the IT industry. All topics will be presented by selected medium-sized IT entrepreneurs.” Maximilian Pöhnl, IT Entrepreneurs’ Day, Picture: © IT Entrepreneurs’ Day
