On Digital Transformation of SMEs

Not Pursued


Which companies have already successfully mastered a digital transformation process?


A platform will provide reference points regarding successful digital transformation processes.

What’s the problem you’re trying to solve?

SMEs need to transform existing processes and practices in order to successfully integrate digital competencies into their organization. Successful transformation processes are often based on implicit experiences. If by means of concrete case studies, the chances of digitization for SMEs can be made visible, hurdles can be reduced and the implementation of the digitization of SMEs can be promoted.

What are your goals and milestones?

The group around the bet “Case Studies” bets that until April  2018, they have published case studies of 100 SMEs who have actively developed their digital competences, and by April 2019, 400 case studies have been compiled representing the sectors of the economy adequately.

What’s your approach?

A register of concrete case studies is presented, which shows how SMEs in Switzerland successfully mastered the development of digital competencies. The register is made available online to serve as inspiration for other companies from all sectors and also fulfils a network function.

What’s the impact your aiming for?

All these organizations can learn from the illustrated examples. At the same time, providers of digital education services can evaluate examples based on best practices and, on this basis, develop new services that help SMEs to tackle new development in digital competences rapidly
