Interview: Why the metaverse is (still) a distant prospect for Swiss SMEs

Patrick Labud and Marco Ravicini have seen many IT trends come and go over the course of their careers. In this interview, the co-authors of bbv’s Technica Radar tell us, among other things, why they favour ethical software development over the metaverse, where energy could be saved and which IT topic should take centre stage in every company.
