Versility Labs originates from academic works at the University of Hamburg and University of California, Berkeley. Funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in Germany, Versility Labs was founded 2016 to develop solutions for leaders in the digital age.
We are building software with a scientific foundation and a commitment to software craftmanship, sophisticated simplicity and premium design. As a company we are dedicated to sustainable thinking and acting socially responsible.
CIOs in the age of digitalization need an IT strategy taking all the relevant information from business, IT and the ecosystem into account. We empower IT executives, by integrating their management tools, analyzing patterns, visualizing choices and enabling evidence-based decision-making.
We call this evidence-based IT strategy, meaning (1) data-driven decision-making, (2) scenario-based impact analysis, (3) stakeholder-oriented communication, (4) execution-monitoring and strategic learning.
Our SaaS-platform supports CIOs to establish evidence-based IT strategy and concentrate efforts on the decisions to be made. With our software CIOs have everything at hand to make, persue, explain, analyze and reflect their strategic choices.
Information searching is often nonlinear and iterative, requiring the evaluation of a broad range of information sources and the mental flexibility to pursue alternate avenues as new understanding is developed. That is why we provide an adaptive navigation built upon our metamodel powered by our graph database. The strategic influence graph is the core to model all the influencing forces and connect them to get the whole picture.
We provide all the information in one place right at hand of the CIO, connecting various tools and data sources. Our meta-model supports the mapping, integration and retrieval of all strategically relevant information needed to make evidence-based decisions.
Strategic conversation is the use of visual and verbal prompts to facilitate discussion and decision-making. CIOs need to translate and explain their decisions to various stakeholder groups, each with specific information needs. The strategic influence graph is the instrument to get into strategic conversation with top management, other C-Level executives, employees and direct reports.
We provide the adequate visualizations of the underlying complex data. CIOs can focus on relevant parts of the strategy without losing all the context and they can use templates to generate visualizations or analyses the stakeholder can understand. Strategic conversation is the best way of exchanging ideas, and thinking together.
Strategic Learning is a leadership process that generates a cycle of ongoing discovery and adaptation. It strives to integrate reflection of past decisions, ongoing monitoring of present actions and development of future guidelines which is continually sharpened through usage of operative data. It is designed to engage the creative and intellectual energies of the organization as broadly as possible.
We are aiming to support this learning by identifying patterns of problems and proposing possible solutions automatically, using machine learning algorithms. This technology-enhanced strategy development can be seen as an integrated strategy machine: a combination of both technological and human resources that act in concert to develop and execute strategy.
We are constantly looking for people with a great sense of dedication to technology and spirit to strengthen our team. While we work hard at what we do, we keep sane work hours to have room for family, friends, and yourself. We are also committed to giving back, for instance teaching at universities and engagement in the Clojure community.
