IT Congress 2012
The third Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences IT Congress took place on October 18, 2012, under the motto "Sleeping comfortably through the hype". More than 160 participants attended the presentations and seminars and talked about pragmatic solutions instead of the hunt to track new trends.
From the outset, it was clear that it is precisely because of continuous innovation in information technology that whether or not a new technology succeeds is decided ultimately by user acceptance. "People use what is convenient for them and don't worry about IT security issues," security expert Dr. Heiko Roßnagel. This concluded, a fact also confirmed in the increasing tendency to use private laptops, smartphones and tablets at work. This presents new challenges for companies which can only be solved by pragmatic means.
Professors from the Neu-Ulm and Ulm University of Applied Sciences, as well as representatives from the business sector delivered talks on security, utility and sustainability. A symposium on IT in the health sector was also held.
