Significance of digitization in medium-sized businesses

The survey of predominantly medium-sized companies shows that they attach great importance to digitization for their own company. For internationally active companies, the significance is even greater. Deficits in the implementation of digital processes are more likely to be observed in medium-sized companies, where individual functional areas are less often digitally supported than in small or large companies. This is probably also related to the pronounced security concerns, especially of innovative companies. That digitization is worthwhile for companies is indicated by the positive correlation between companies with high revenue growth and a simultaneously high degree of digitization.
