The Evangelical Church of Württemberg started the project to provide its congregations with more efficient, cost effective, and safer IT facilities, including infrastructure and full-services. The main idea was to be able to provide the parish offices all the high-quality modules of a functioning IT operation from a single source. Up until then, the congregations were decentralized. The IT environment was very heterogeneous, with a broad variety of implemented hardware and software.
Through a bidding process, DATAGROUP was selected for the second time as IT provider for the project. The following CORBOX modules are currently part of the project:
The overarching focus of the project was to lighten the everyday tasks of the pastors and so that they could devote more time to the important work they do in the community.
With an area of approx. 20,000 square kilometers, the Evangelical Church of Württemberg covers approx. two-thirds of the Baden-Württemberg area. The state church consists of approx. 1,300 church congregations and 100 parishes. The church has approx. 2.1 million members.
