(Berlin, 20.09.2021) „Football is a simple game - 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.” Some words of wisdom, even like this one from legendary British football star Gary Lineker, don't last forever. The losing team of our internal DaPhi European Championship prediction game, which had seen Germany in front, also had to acknowledge this and host our late summer barbecue on the roof terrace of the DaPhi office in September. For our new apprentices Sascha Schroer and Florian Woschnik, this was a perfect start to the next three years of their apprenticeship, during which they will learn the trade of IT specialists for system integration. A warm welcome!
(Berlin, 23.08.2021) Thinking about IT, the word flexibility quickly comes to mind. But it doesn't always has to be about flexible IT utilisation. Having the IT system house DaPhi in mind, it can also be about dealing with country-specific peculiarities. As a service provider for the hotel industry, we travel all over Europe to install and set up the IT of new hotels on site, as we did this year for our client MEININGER in Switzerland, Austria and France. A very unique kind of flexibility.
(Berlin, 06.07.2021) Renewable energies are an interesting topic. Their necessity is a social consensus, but when it comes to construction measures, especially with the mighty wind turbines, things get tricky. It is easier on a small scale, especially when you are lucky enough to have your own roof terrace in front of your office. As we are lucky enough, we were now able to inaugurate our own solar power station in the shape of solar panels.
(Berlin, 15.12.2020) As IT experts, we are aware of a few solutions against forgetting. The possibilities of digitalisation are almost endless. You can record the most complex things digitally, in sound, image, writing, and then save them on hard drives, on USB sticks, on floppy disks (also worth remembering), in your genome (!), directly onto your own computer or in a cloud service. And many things have already been saved for us by others. We can find them on the internet. But there are other clever methods of preserving knowledge, such as traditions: recurring festivities that form their own memory just by being held again and again.
(Berlin, 02.10.2020) DaPhi is known as a reliable IT system house, since its foundation 20 years ago as a service provider for professional WIFI, for our expertise in infrastructure planning, network architecture, virtualization and child care... yes, you read correctly: child care. In 2018 we already received an award for our commitment to education and the promotion of young talent, family friendliness and employee welfare (see article), but we never thought that we would have a DaPhi kindergarten like the one Corona and the overstrained school and day care situation in Berlin would present us.
