The objective of the outsourcing project was to achieve measurable competitive advantages from IT. The mid-sized company could no longer meet the expenses of maintaining the necessary bandwidth of know-how in house.

“Our expenses for this project are really an investment“, explains the Director of Finance & Administration when commenting on the reasons for this direction by his company. The goal of this outsourcing project was to gain measurable competitive advantages from IT.

Within the context of a six-month pre-project, the IT infrastructure of Clarins Germany was revised and standardized. Server processes were consolidated and centralized. Consequently, Clarins gave their entire IT operations, including the service desk, to DATAGROUP.
