Events, papers and books in M&A and software business ahead of us
thank you for your interest in my blog. I wish you a merry christmas and a happy New Year!
What will 2019 bring? More robots in our homes ? We already have two. One vaccum and one mopping robot. More robotic process automation at work combined with Machine Learning ? Sure. More electric cars (Maybe one for me?)? Sending an avatar to work instead of me ? Probably not. We don´t know and that makes life interesting.
Here are some things i will be working on in 2019:
Papers and books
I have the honor to co-edit an issue of IEEE Software:
Michael Cusumano, Slinger Jansen, Karl Michael Popp (eds.), IEEE Software special issue on Managing Software Platforms and Ecosystems, to be published 2019.
I will work on completing the book:
Karl Michael Popp, Successful Post Merger Integration: State of the art and Innovations in M&A processes, Books on demand, to be published 2019.
We had a great European workshop on software ecosystems at the Platform Economy SUmmit in Berlin and will publish the proceedings asap:
Peter Buxmann, Thomas Aidan Curran, Gerald Eichler, Slinger Jansen, Thomas Kude, Karl Michael Popp (eds.): European workshop on software ecosystems 2018, Books on demand.
With the help of machine learning based translation robots, i might publish another German book, too.
Besides the usual European workshop on software ecosystems and Denkfabrik Wirtschaft, a new workshop will come up, which is a discussion battle between researchers and practitioners in the topic of mergers and acquisitions in London. Xperience Connect will host several thought leadership events on Digitization of M&A and more.
All the best for you and your families in 2019
Always look to the future
