There is increasing pressure on both, companies as well as software producers to provide a competitive eco-system that offers more than the functions and services so far available. In future, the success and the functional efficiency of new eco systems will depend on how much we trust in the unambiguous identity of people, machinery and things in the digital world.
Keywords like mobility, industry 4.0, internet of things, mobile payment or connected cars are just some examples for the future necessity to coordinate complex processes in a way to ensure smooth and reliable cooperation.
Currently, mobile applications run “independently”. There is no proper interconnection. The potential value chain is thus not used effectively. In future, various mobile applications will not only be interconnected by also integrated with processes to directly control workflows. A new eco-system in the digital world and reliable identities are indispensable to achieve this goal.
