We are delighted to present you with the 2023 Annual Review. First of all, we would like to thank all of swiss made software's sponsors and partners for their excellent cooperation. Our work would not be possible without your commitment!

But now an overview of the previous year's activities, on which we want to build in 2024.

annual review 2023 - "digital sovereignty" & "en français"

In 2023, swiss made software grew by a further 110 companies. This brought the number of companies using one of the swiss made software, swiss digital services or swiss hosting labels to over 1,200 members. There are also currently over 800 products and services on our platform

swiss made software en français

Our website is now also available in French. Last December we translated the site - front and back end. From now on, not only can all information on our three labels (swiss made software, swiss digital services, swiss hosting) be obtained in three languages (German, English, French), but all company descriptions and offers of products and services can also be posted accordingly.

The latter is particularly relevant for our level 2 carriers from French-speaking Switzerland and for companies with customers in French-speaking Switzerland or in French-speaking countries. They can now also be addressed in their native language or referred to all our relevant information on the topic of Swiss Made in French.

social media campaign - digital sovereignty

In 2023, we carried out our second major social media campaign. After celebrating reaching the 1,000-user mark in 2022, we focused on the topic of "digital sovereignty" in 2023. The campaign was viewed over 10,000 times via X and LinkedIn.

We will also be running another social media campaign in 2024. The details will follow soon.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the companies taking part in this year's campaign!

"it's about tech" - our series of events in the Basel area

As part of our "it's about tech" series of events in collaboration with BaselTech, a program to promote the canton of Basel-Stadt as a business location, we once again demonstrated that the Rhine bend is not a wasteland when it comes to ICT. With four events a year, "it's about tech" has established itself as a platform for the exchange of knowledge among Basel's technology enthusiasts. The program was supported as Leading Partner by cyon and ti&m, as Presenting Partner by Magnolia and Prodyna and as Supporting Partner by brix IT Solutions, CSEM, b.telligent and Karakun. Co-hosting partners were Swiss Life, Klybeq. The event series reached over 400 participants and more than 12,000 impressions on social media. 

A review including video recordings of the presentations can be found here:

  • it's about tech #6: How do I start a software company today? On my own, with venture capital or as a partner? Where are the market niches, what are the pitfalls?
  • it's about tech #5: VR/AR, Web3, AI/ML & Co. - What will the digital experience of the future look and feel like?
  • it's about tech #4: Because talent is not enough - what skills will we need in the tech world of tomorrow?
  • it's about tech #3: "Data Science & Artificial Intelligence (DSAI) - a reality check"

And these are the proposed topics and dates for 2024, on site in Basel:

  • The Future of work – more efficiency, more collaboration, more purpose?

Date: 8.4.2024 — Location: Klybeq, Basel

  • Data Science/ML/AI – what’s hot, what’s not (anymore)

Date: 26.6.2024 — Location: Klybeq, Basel

  • Smart environments – propTech, greenTech, energyTech, cleanTech etc.

swiss developer survey 2023

At the end of 2023, we conducted the "swiss developer survey" again - with great success! Over 800 developers from all over Switzerland contributed to the success of the survey. Many thanks to all those who took part!

About the content: It's not just technological applications that are developing rapidly. The same applies to tools such as programming languages, frameworks, platforms or databases that are used to build new applications. For developers, however, it is about more than "just" tools, because technology is emotional and therefore directly responsible for job satisfaction and choice of employer.

The results of the survey will be published in the course of March. We will announce this via newsletter and social media

guides - high-quality content in cooperation with our sponsors

In 2023, our first guides went live: this is high-quality content that we created together with individual sponsors. The guides are an ideal platform for showcasing Swiss expertise in the field of digitalization online.

The result is presented in the form of SEO-optimized landing pages or 
"Guides" on popular ICT topics in the Swiss context. The information is created according to editorial aspects, taking central keywords into account.
