30 years of SKyPRO

10,000 years is a tiny span of time in the history of our universe. In contrast, 30 years in IT is a very long time. SKyPRO AG was officially founded on April 6, 1987. It is not a matter of course that a company has existed in our industry for over 30 years. In 1987 the 2nd CeBIT, which had been founded the year before, just took place. And only 3% of all offices had a personal computer. Word processing systems was the current keyword of the time and Apple wanted to position itself more in office communication.

When asked what has most influenced business life in the last 30 years, one would have to say, the smartphone and the availability of data. A lot has changed and a lot has happened: the PC and network revolution of the 1980s, the Internet revolution in the late 1990s and finally the mobile revolution in the late 1990s. Today, information can be called up at any time and from anywhere (“anywhere, anytime”). In addition, each and every one of us would like to have access to everything every day and everywhere, in the hotel, in the car or even on the train. If the bandwidths continue to grow and the Internet of Things becomes a reality and more and more devices are networked with one another and the data and transaction volumes explode, new markets for new products and services will emerge.

SKyPRO AG has been an “enabler” since it was founded. We still support our customers and partners with services and products just as we did 30 years ago, specifically with the creation of continuous company processes across a wide variety of systems and applications. This automatic data exchange and the corresponding integration of intelligent processes guarantee the scalability and security of the systems.

One can rightly ask which current trend is likely to have the most lasting impact on IT in the years to come. The volume of data is exploding due to the networking of all systems. Intelligent evaluations of these growing data streams have huge potential for business decision-makers. Companies that work with these technologies and opportunities will benefit. The use of this data and its evaluation brings enormous competitive advantages. With data, not oil, good money can already be made today, but more and more in the future.
