Our annual report

Our company’s successes, learnings, and ever-growing portfolio of projects and experiments are as much a testimony of our colleagues’ pride as they are a testament to our customers’ progress. Each year the pages of our annual report document these milestones and more.

Flourishing in unprecedented times

In today’s predictably unpredictable world, IT has many calls to answer. Besides fulfilling the constant demand for updates and upgrades, technological solutions must meet organizational needs for security, compliance, sustainable development, and market-topping innovation. Meanwhile, economic, political, and social changes add to the complexity.

And yet, while many organizations – and the people who bravely run them – have lately expressed the feeling of leaping from crisis to crisis, for our customers, the experience has been different. Throughout 2021, they too had to contend with global and local stressors and uncertainty. But through it all, our customers enjoyed great resilience. In fact, many didn’t just perform well; they found themselves, to quote the theme of our latest annual report, flourishing in unprecedented times.

Our annual report highlights these resilient customer cases, sharing what we have learned from their successes and challenges as well as looking ahead on their industries’ horizons. We also detail the multidimensional Schuberg Philis approach that has enabled our customers to tap into their own technological power, organizational agility, and drive to do better business.

This attitude, which we at Schuberg Philis refer to as 100%, is what guides our consulting approach. Read the article in full here.

Digital resilience: a mindset and a matter of practice

Attacks in the digital world are only rising, with some even causing physical harm to society. Everyone needs digital resilience. But why is it hard for organizations to have and hold onto? To stay resilient – withstanding the pressure of crises – we need to think of resilience not as a commodity that you buy or trade, but as something you practice.

Boldly manufacturing and innovating at the same time

In the face of crises, the manufacturers we partner with have harnessed both their actual entrepreneurialism and their entrepreneurial spirit. While we’ve seen other companies focus on either keeping up and running or, by contrast, continuing to innovate simply to get ahead of the competition, our customers have stayed simultaneously committed to both. Upkeep and innovation are not diametrically opposed.

Our scalability of expertise: what IT demands when talent is rare

IT talent has always been a rare find, and the digital revolution is intensifying the scarcity. Meanwhile, too many talented workers are stuck in siloed organizations that don’t do justice to their capabilities and stifle their creativity. In these situations, experts are unable to make decisions, especially decisions benefitting from interdisciplinary expertise. But what if things could be done differently?

So how did their readiness for unexpected, dynamic situations weather 2021’s ongoing pandemic and new crises? To find out, we spoke with representatives from multinational bank and financial services company Rabobank, Dutch railway operator NS, and the Netherlands’ Ministry of Finance.
