Major order for QSC AG: Modernisation of IT landscape at SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH
SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH aims to achieve a secure, modern and flexible IT landscape, one which adapts dynamically in line with its business performance and can be consolidated with its central IT systems. At the same time, the new cloud-based environment should portray the individual needs of the business units and facilitate more rapid implementation of innovations at the Group.
Holger Blase, Group CIO of the SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Group, comments on the decision in favour of QSC AG: "The decisive criteria for us were the technical solution concept, contractual flexibility and the great focus placed on successful transition. We were also convinced by QSC's commitment to working in a partnership of equals. By taking this step into the cloud, we will now be able to commit more of our own IT resources into strategic, forward-looking IT projects." According to Blase, these particularly included digitalising the company's process landscape.
Cloud strategy pays off
"We are delighted by the order we have received, which clearly underlines our expertise when it comes to the IT needs of manufacturers", comments Jürgen Hermann, CEO of QSC AG. "Our cloud strategy, in which we provide companies with individual cloud services while at the same time supporting them in moving to the public cloud, has absolutely paid off here."
In performing its services QSC, which is acting as general contractor in the project, will for the first time draw on services from Bechtle . Germany's largest IT systems company will supply the necessary decentralised hardware components and provide SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH with on-site support services at its business locations in Germany. A team from Lexta Consultants Group provided its expertise to advise the Group in organising the tender and selecting a provider capable of managing the challenges ahead.
