CEO

AI is here. Only a few other technologies will shape the world we live in as significantly as AI in the upcoming years. statworx is working at the very heart of this transformation. Every day.

Being in the center of the AI transformation makes it paramount to understand our role and responsibility as a company in this process to steer the development of AI into a meaningful and sustainable direction for humanity. statworx next is our contribution to rise of AI, providing a vision, mission, and strategy for our company and people. It is a mandatory step in the development of our company to further stay relevant and shape the world around us for the better. Join us on our journey into the future.

 

The road to statworx next

statworx has always been a place of belief in the power of data. For many years, we have been successfully working together with our customers on their data- and AI-driven future. By doing so, we were able to grow the company, hire a larger team and expand to new locations. Thereby, success in terms of growth, new clients, and financial freedom carried our motivation for a long time.

After a cumbersome pandemic year of 2020, statworx began to ask the question of “why”. Why are we doing what we are doing? What does it all mean? Where are we heading? Money, clients, projects? Is this all? There must have been more – and there was more.

Driven by these questions, we went on a journey to create a vision of the future of statworx that brings a purpose and meaning into our everyday hustle. In retrospect, this endeavor was – hands down – one of the most important things we have ever accomplished for our company. Inspired by Ikigai, an old Japanese philosophy of finding meaning in life, we’ve started to explore different dimensions of purpose and “why” for our company. According to Ikigai, you want to live in the intersection of (1) “what I am good at”, (2) “what I love doing”, (3) “what I get paid for”, and (4) “what the world needs”. Clearly, statworx had already proven 1-3, but what about 4? What was it that the world demands and we provide?

To answer this question, we were mentally traversing the most significant challenges of our time. Climate change and resource scarcity, societies shifting and transforming, and a global economy amid a digital revolution. The answer seemed too large and too far – but was actually so close. During our thought process, we discovered a common element to all of these challenges: artificial intelligence. Be it the solution, cause, or contribution, AI already plays and will continue to play a fundamental role in all of those challenges. As a consequence, our enterprise, statworx, and every person in our company, will play a part in this game. Ultimately, this means that we are working at the heart of a technology that is of uttermost importance and impact for our world, the future, and the challenges we are facing. This finding immediately changed our perspective on what we were doing as a company in the last few years. Being part of something that big and impactful completely releveled our ambition of what we can achieve and contribute to the future. But how? The future is a hard thing to change. Nonetheless, it is possible by questioning the status quo and engaging in a series of smaller steps that ultimately accumulate into change. Now, next, future. Our purpose was clear: We are here to challenge the now, create the next and shape the future for the better. statworx next was born.

We are here to challenge the now, create the next and shape the future for the better.

What is statworx next?

statworx next is our vision of the future. The future of our company and the people therein, embedded into our economy, society and environment. It is a compass that helps us to locate ourselves and navigate towards the unknown and ever-changing future of AI. Through statworx next, we reflect on our role and responsibility as a company, working and contributing to the data and AI revolution. From statworx next, we derive our mission and strategy to manifest our vision into reality.

Mission

In the last years, artificial intelligence has already begun and will continue to transform the world we are living in in ways we cannot even imagine today. Due to the rise of intelligence in machines, humans will no longer be the only entities on this planet being able to perform intelligent tasks of higher sophistication. This will cause a new industrial revolution leading to profound transformations in many aspects of our world.

People
For humanity, AI will ultimately impact the lives of every human being on the planet. We are already experiencing the first effects. Still, we must expect an exponential speedup of changes in the next decade that are currently even impossible to imagine.

Economy
AI will radically transform worldwide economies by either destroying existing or creating new business models and machine workers that are able to solve many intelligent, prior human-executed tasks. This will lead to massive economies of scope and scale and the disruption of existing market structures.

Society
On the level of our society, AI will cause substantial social transformations due to the change of many current models of employment and value creation. Ultimately, this will lead to a new system of labor work in which humans and intelligent machines will co-exist and co-create together.

Environment
As all of the three systems mentioned before are interconnected and embedded in our environment, AI will consequently also impact the latter. While there is great hope to tackle environmental challenges using artificial intelligence, there is also an urge to manage AI’s exponentially growing resource demands in a responsible and sustainable manner.

Our role
For more than a decade, we have been pioneering the field of data and AI in hundreds of projects for dozens of customers in the German-speaking region. Thereby, we were focusing on enabling companies and thus empowering our economy in Germany and Europe in a global, digital economy.

Through statworx next, we have significantly broadened the perspective on our role towards a greater scope of responsibility. In addition to our existing engagement for our corporate clients, we emphasize people, both in companies and the broader public, that must be educated about the potentials but also challenges and threats of the upcoming transformations that AI is causing to our society and lives. Alongside people, society, and the economy, we engage in activities to preserve our planet’s scarce resources and protect our fragile environment. For us, this means that we are pursuing initiatives and projects that utilize data and AI technology to protect our environment.

Derived from our purpose and our vision of the future we formulate our mission to empower our economy, educate people and society and protect our environment using data and AI technology. Our mission reflects our ambition and perceived role as a company working on the future of AI in the intersection of people, our economy, society and environment.

Our mission is to empower our economy, educate people and society and protect our environment using data and AI technology.

Strategy

In order to put our mission into action, we’ve adapted our existing company structure to account for additional ways of impacting our economy, society and environment. Thereby, we are relying on existing and new commercial business areas as well as new non-commercial, cross-functional initiatives that specifically target our society and environment.

Offerings

The structure of our commercial services reflect the ongoing transformation and maturity of AI in our economy. Thereby, we aim to empower our enterprise and SME customers to leverage the full potential of data and AI technologies in their area of business. Ultimately, this contributes to a strong and autonomous European economic area with respect to a meaningful, human-centered and sustainable usage of AI.

Contribution
