"The world, and thus the economy, is increasingly digitized."

All sectors are facing important changes as a result of digitization, from mechanical engineering to the media industry: new business models, manufacturing processes and products are being created, innovation cycles are becoming shorter, consumer behaviour is changing and the intensity of competition is increasing. The digitization and automation of business processes and services (e.g. in the insurance industry) creates new structures and offers considerable opportunities.

Industry 4.0 ", i.e. the digital networking of all involved customers, suppliers, employees and production systems, will also lead to upheavals in the value-added process in the coming decades. Medium-sized companies should therefore start to face this development today.

The IT sector in DACH has a broad base and employs more than 1 million people in Germany alone. Not only in Silicon Valley, but also in the DACH region and the rest of Europe there are a number of world market leaders in IT, such as SAP, Infineon and Software AG. Recently, numerous small world market leaders have also evolved in IT sub-sectors, such as Acrolinx (Enterprise Content Creation via Artificial Intelligence), ControlExpert (digitization of business processes in car insurance), IHSE (Keyboard Video Mouse Technology) and Syslink (Performance Monitoring Software for SAP).

Over the last few years, CODEX Partners has carried out numerous projects in relevant IT segments, ranging from hardware (industrial PCs, KVM products, digital POS systems, etc.) to software (dental CAD software, workflow solutions for hospitals, SaaS for alerting and crisis management, SAP monitoring, content optimization software, etc.) to IT services (software-based BPO for vehicle insurance, IT infrastructure maintenance, etc.).
