DATAGROUP named “Top 15 Sourcing Standout” by ISG

Pliezhausen, 25 July 2023. DATAGROUP has been named a Top 15 Sourcing Standout by ISG (Information Services Group), a leading global technology research and advisory firm. DATAGROUP is among the Top 15 Service & Technology Providers in ISG’s “Booming 15” category for EMEA based on annual contract value (ACV) awarded over the the last 12 months, according to the 1Q23 Global ISG Index™. It is the first time DATAGROUP has been recognized by ISG as a Top 15 Sourcing Standout.

DATAGROUP’s inclusion in the ISG Index provider leader boards is based on data the company submits to ISG each quarter. The ISG Index™ is recognized as an authoritative source of market information on the global technology and business services industry.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by ISG. Our ACV awarded over the past 12 months proves that our modular IT service portfolio precisely meets the needs of companies for the digitalization of their business processes and worry-free IT operations,” says Andreas Baresel, CEO of DATAGROUP. “Our customers see the great added value of the CORBOX IT service portfolio.”

Baresel added: “This value is also reflected in the successful development of CORBOX’s core business in the past fiscal year. In addition, DATAGROUP expects that the positive order development will continue, as further new contracts were recently concluded with numerous customers.”

The ISG Index™, now in its 82nd consecutive quarter, provides an independent quarterly review of the latest sourcing industry data and trends. Each quarter, the ISG Index identifies the top 15 commercial suppliers in the categories of Big 15 (revenues of more than $10 billion), Building 15 (revenues between $3 billion and $10 billion), Breakthrough 15 (revenues between $1 billion and $3 billion), and Booming 15 (revenues of less than $1 billion) in the Americas, EMEA, and Asia Pacific regions.
