Since the IPO in 2006, DATAGROUP has successfully acquired 25 companies and integrated them into the Group. DATAGROUP is actively participating in the IT service market’s consolidation process with its “buy and turn around” and its “buy and build” strategy. DATAGROUP’s subsidiaries are divided into the service areas “Services and Solutions” as well as “Consulting”. The central service production is represented by central supply units.
DATAGROUP pays particular attention to retaining the status quo of the acquired companies, their customer relationships as well as their service portfolio and thus offering a stable future for the employees. For this reason, we are noted for our cautious and emphatic approach. We deliberately avoid the term “integration” when it comes to our new companies but rather speak of an “inclusion”, where we individually embed each company as an independent unit under the umbrella of the DATAGROUP group. It is especially this independence that preserves entrepreneurship, team spirit and the customer relationships at eye level in which we excel in the midmarket segment.
This approach is reflected in our guideline “100 days DATAGROUP”, which enables a continuation of acquired companies in the usual manner with only minimal interruption to daily operations. At the same time, these companies benefit from the strong DATAGROUP brand as an IT service provider which is known and is operating throughout Germany. We also invest in the growth of our companies and strengthen them in the long term to continue their growth stories together.
»Although the conditions were challenging when the company was taken over, we succeeded in making the transformation work and eventually achieving a very successful turnaround thanks to an active exchange of experience and constructive support from DATAGROUP.«
