We (Larissa, Sebastian, Tim) are working in the current practical phase of our studies at the company’s headquarters in Ismaning. This gives us the opportunity to meet new teams. We would like to introduce you to the teams and our projects:
My name is Larissa and I’m studying International Business-Industrial Sales&Marketing.
Currently, I’m writing my second project thesis about customer project controlling in the Consulting and Implementation (C&I) department. C&I manages various projects: They give the customers advice on the software solutions and they support them by the software solutions’ integration. Customers can also participate in a training regarding the question “How to use the software?”.
In my project thesis, I think about a project controlling tool fitting the C&I‑department. Then, I create a concept describing how the project controlling could look like in the C&I‑department. In my opinion, it is a very interesting topic because I have already attended lectures in project management. Therefore, I can use my theoretical knowledge for the project thesis. And the team, of course, supports me very well!
My name is Sebastian and I’m studying Industrial Engineering with a focus on sales. Here in Munich, I’m working on a project within the department C&I, which involves developing an evaluation tool that can be used to select external software companies. Different criteria have to be defined and considered in order to finally find the optima provider, so that the cooperation and ultimately the whole project can take a positive course. The colleagues greeted us very friendly and were always available for questions. As another great help in the daily work the coffee machine turned out to be a great help, which we visited often…
My name is Tim and I’m studying Applied Computer Science and I’m currently writing my practical work thesis for the 5th semester. I supporting therefor the Software Development Process Solutions Team. The team is responsible for the development, maintenance and expansion of our order software solution. The order platform is located in the B2B area and one of its tasks is to handle the ordering process between buyer and supplier. My task is to revise the current communication during the ordering process. The software architecture is to be changed. The team received me very friendly and I’m looking forward to this very exciting project.
After a successful day we also wanted to see what’s going on here in Munich in the evening…. After we had understood the timetable of the S‑Bahn, we started to the first highlight in the backstage, where the band “Bad Manners” provided a great atmosphere!
Great atmosphere and great music….. a perfect end of a successful day!
Even though the lunch in the cafeteria is really good, we didn’t miss to try the supposedly best burger in town…. and we were not disappointed, because what the shop ‘Taste my Burger’ put on our plates was really outstanding!
Result: We are definitely coming back!
This was not the only time we had lunch after work, because after out arrival in Ismaning we were invited directly to the C&I dinner at Jan’s bistro and had the opportunity to get to know the employees of this department better. Colleagues from locations outside Germany were also present.
But there were even more highlights during our time…. Let’s go again towards the S‑Bahn, the first one just missed, but the second one brought us to our destination….
In fine winter weather we went off to the Ampere, where Nick Woodland, living rock’ n’ roll and blues guitar legend, with his band heated up the audience….
Another great evening in Munich!
Oh yes, there was something going on at the company. A false alarm in the early morning hours ensured that we had to endure and involuntary stay of 20 minutes in the freezing cold outside. The fire brigade was quickly on the spot and so it was possible to continue quickly.
As you can see, there is always something going on with us…
Always nice to get the opportunity to work at different locations. Whether it’s Cologne, Weikersheim or Munich, every location is different, but each time it’s totally interesting. We will gladly come back!
