Technica Radar

Which technologies are on the rise, which are losing relevance? The edition of the bbv Technica Radar shows the current developments and serves as a basis for decision-making.

For the second time, bbv's CTO Board has compiled the current IT trends in the Technica Radar. After the Technica Radar was launched in January 2021, the CTO Board of bbv, consisting of Patrick Labud, Marco Ravicini and Axel Hohnberg, has once again taken a close look at the IT industry and compiled a comprehensive overview in which current technologies, topics, tools, frameworks and methods are assessed and located in a diagram according to their current relevance and potential.

In addition to their own assessment, the CTO Board uses various sources. Representatives of most of the bbv teams as well as external experts provide input, and other trend studies are also consulted: "We try to show the essence of the most important trends from bbv's point of view," says Patrick Labud, member of the CTO Board at bbv. "The radar is created from a hodgepodge of many researches and conversations with colleagues, experts, customers or partners. The whole thing is consolidated by numerous bbv experts from different departments."

The Technica Radar is intended to have its finger on the pulse of the times and also to reflect the strategic further development of bbv. At the same time, the Technica Radar is also a tool for customers, who can use the chart and compact information to quickly get an overview of current IT trends. "There are many international tech barometers that describe regional or even global trends. With our focus on Switzerland, users of the Technica Radar receive a unique summary of local conditions," explains Patrick Labud.

Since the radar also has a forward-looking view, the authors sometimes venture a rather provocative thesis, but they always base it on expert opinions. Patrick Labud and his colleagues attach great importance to sound information. "When in doubt, we don't listen to current trends that come from international sources such as management consultants or organizations, but rely on our own expertise and on the opinions of our experts."
