Leveraging data to generate added value

For over two decades, the Fraunhofer Center for Applied Research on Supply Chain Services SCS has been leveraging data to generate essential information and key figures for its customers: to this end, in addition to designing data spaces and IoT prototypes, the Center’s various departments are also devoted to developing cutting-edge data analytics methods and innovation tools that companies can use to execute a successful organizational and strategic digital transformation.

This special combination of economic methods, technological solutions, and mathematical procedures and models allows companies to reduce costs, boost sales, and strengthen their brand – regardless of their size or sector.

To achieve this, in keeping with its vision of »Success and added value thanks to data«, Fraunhofer SCS utilizes and processes data across all relevant business processes within the company and builds on the existing knowledge within its own organization. This scientific expertise combines with a data pool drawn from almost 25 years of research, as well as specialized infrastructure such as the ADA Center for Analytics, Data and Applications, to make Fraunhofer SCS the first port of call for all issues relating to the successful handling of data.
