The SME 4.0 Cloud Agency is part of the “SME 4.0 − Digital Production and Work Processes” funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of its “SME Digital – Strategies for digitally transforming business processes” priority funding category. The Agency’s work supports multipliers, such as competence centers, professional organizations and associations, that in turn support companies on the path toward digitalization.
Through the SME 4.0 Cloud Agency, professional organizations and associations can communicate the practical importance of cloud services to SMEs and help them understand how to implement, use and integrate cloud applications in their business processes. Through events and even the website and the closed XING group “Mittelstand 4.0-Agentur Cloud”, advisors for the multipliers can quickly and easily expand their cloud knowledge and access event concepts and methods. In addition, players in the SME 4.0 Cloud Agency promote the sharing of experience with and among interested multipliers.
This train-the-trainer concept from technology and innovation consultants in the regional funding institutions enables many interested companies to quickly and reliably access basic cloud knowledge.
All SME 4.0 Cloud Agency support services and offers can be used free of charge.
