and realisation of complex web applications and IoT and IIoT-solutions, and the use of artificial intelligence which, if applied skillfully, provides enormous potential for many enterprises. Major international companies, such as Siemens, VW, Audi, Grohe and Bosch, have long since discovered the merits of software solutions by itemis. “Our clients highly estimate our pronounced quality and service philosophy. We love what we do and we understand our trade. Ultimately, we pursue two goals: the sustainable design of tailor-made software and our clients’ contentment – even if the latter means to question a client’s idea and, after an in-depth analysis of requirements,

suggest alternatives to achieve their aim better or faster. We are agile and, in order to ensure our clients’ success, involve our usability experts right from the start,” stresses Freytag. Under its own brand YAKINDU, itemis creates and distributes its own software solutions for software and system engineering projects. Freytag explains further: “Products by YAKINDU support our clients in many ways. This encompasses the modelling of state machines and automated code generation, the traceability of requirements through the entire v-model, and the early identification and assessment of risks such as cyber attacks.” Regardless of their clients’ challenges, itemis finds tailor-made, resource-efficient solutions that may even go on to create unexpected competitive advantages.
