From Proof of
Concept to


As a result of technological progress and innovative products and solutions offered by start-ups, new business areas are emerging that can restructure or define value chains. Medium to large organisations often have difficulty performing such profound transformations, and are dependent on their existing methods or computer systems (referred to as legacy systems). The underlying principles of such changes will be collected in a guide and put at the disposal of interested parties.


The team bets that a practical guidebook will be put into action by 1 April 2019, in order to solve the industrialisation of a proof of concept (PoC) for easy integration into companies’ legacy systems.


The way in which a new technology can add value to an organisation, PoC, is quickly identified. The problems arise during implementation. Organisations build on successful legacy systems from which it is subsequently difficult to separate. Another problem is evaluation of the success of a PoC in order to validate it or stop it in time.


With the advancing pace of technological change, a guide to integration of new solutions and technologies into existing legacy systems is desirable. The guide will suggest what implementation of a new technology and its organisation-wide application may entail, and how best practice in management should be adapted.


On a small scale, PoCs are ideal in order to identify promising technologies and concepts. This guide, which provides practical guidance, can help organisations ensure that they do not miss out on new technologies and assist them in assessing whether an application makes sense, and if so how the new technology can be implemented quickly.
