One of the biggest sport events has just ended and Germans like myself are currently live in some sort of fairy tale. Since sports are all about emotion, devotion and people, it is all about us and this “One moment in time.”
Our annual Wolters Kluwer Technology conference took place in July in both Boston and Amsterdam. Over the last 3 years, we’ve moved from “Technology and Business,” towards “Technology supports Business,” to “Technology is Business.” Read further >
Playing is one of the human needs that lasts for a lifetime. We all need to have fun and since games are fun, providing players with a positive experience, people engage with games freely (when it is not pathological gambling) and with the mere motivation to enjoy themselves.

New Year’s Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It’s a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.
