Fragmented IT landscapes, different software systems and complex supply chain processes are a challenge that companies face more often – especially as a result of acquisitions. As a consequence, business opportunities are lost, advantages of the acquisition and/or partnerships are not fully leveraged and core processes disrupted.

This thesis shall thus investigate the opportunities of big data and digitization to help solve this problem for our clients. Examples are edge technology or additional software layer to consolidate and analysis data at larger scale / company level.

Three main questions will need to be addressed:

  • Which are the most impactful problems and disruptions?
  • What technologies can help solve the challenges?
  • What is the business impact of (not) taking advantage of these opportunities?


The thesis may require a basic understanding of opportunities, process impact and implications of different landscape architectures. However, the focus is on operational and business implications, not the actual IT-infrastructure and setup of such a system.

If you have further questions, please do e-mail us.

We are interested in supporting your career long-term and may offer you a position as Associate Consultant in our firm after successfully concluding your thesis.
