We are the newly formed network organization at GEA dedicated to digital innovation for the digital customer journey. Our goal is to further enhance GEA machines and systems with state-of-the-art digital solutions for the benefit of our customers.
Our digital hub is the backbone of GEA Digital; its primary goal is to industrialize digital platforms in development and operations and deliver services for all divisions. This is where we leverage synergies across our diverse businesses and develop the solutions that should only be developed once across GEA. These focus on four main areas:
Developing secure, standardized, and scalable connections from edge to cloud.
Developing secure, standardized, and scalable pipelines to serve digital products with data.
Implementation of a unified customer interface including APPs.
Enablement of new digital business models and customer centric development of GEA wide APP concepts.
Powering our hub is a highly diverse, crack team of software, data, cloud and UX/UI specialists together with agile coaches and other experts tasked with developing and delivering powerful, standardized solutions/services across a wide range of GEA industries and applications.
This core group works in close collaboration in our guilds within the digital units, providing them with the technologies, framework, guidance and coaching they need to develop, market and scale their digital innovations quickly – and serve their customers optimally.
We walk our talk. Every day, we test and live the agile working culture we aim to establish throughout the organization.
Our digital units are tasked with developing division-specific digital products and software. They are the customer-facing component of GEA Digital, immersed in an ongoing collaboration with our businesses and their customers to develop solutions based on real customer needs.
Based in our divisions, the digital unit teams are constantly building, testing, and shaping new concepts and prototypes. They work closely with our business experts, combining their deep knowledge of our machines with new digital solutions to take GEA products and solutions to the next level.
In line with our digital strategy, we have prioritized several lighthouse projects in each of the divisions – projects with the greatest potential for marketability, scalability and value-add for customers. The digital units actively drive these projects with dedicated agile teams backed by resources from the digital hub.
