Lünendonk List 2021: DATAGROUP is Once Again Among Germany’s Leading IT Service Providers

Pliezhausen, June 10, 2021. The market research institute Lünendonk & Hossenfelder has today published the current Lünendonk list. Among the leading IT service providers in Germany, DATAGROUP ranks fifth among the top 10 IT service providers and rises by one rank compared to 2020.

For the current lists by Lünendonk and Hossenfelder on the IT market in Germany, around 80 IT service providers and around 140 IT managers were surveyed from February to April 2021 using extensive qualified questionnaires. In addition, the market research experts’ experience from long-term observations was incorporated into the study. In contrast to other industries, the IT services market grew during the Corona pandemic. This is because in many companies the pandemic was the catalyst for necessary and in some cases postponed corporate transformations. This is because the situation made it very clear to companies how important it is to switch to digital work, communication and sales processes.

Demand was particularly high for digital workplace solutions, cloud migrations, operation in the cloud and cloud-native software development, as well as programs to optimize costs and efficiency through digitization. Customers demand a broad, interdisciplinary spectrum from IT service providers with a wide portfolio breadth to support this development.

With the CORBOX and the IT Transformation as well as IT Solutions, DATAGROUP offers exactly the comprehensive portfolio needed. With the help of the modular CORBOX, the IT service provider supports companies in laying the foundations for digitization – whether on premises, in the private cloud in Germany, in a public cloud or in hybrid scenarios. Experienced IT consultants support the transformation of existing systems to efficient digital processes and infrastructures with the help of best practices. DATAGROUP forms the engine room of digitization for customers and starts exactly where they need support in a practice-oriented manner and at eye level with the customer.

The success of this strategy is proven by the high customer satisfaction and the constant revenue growth of the company. Within the Lünendonk list of leading IT service companies, DATAGROUP again shows the strongest growth among the top 10.
