CANCOM among the leaders for Digital Transformation Services and Solutions in Germany

The Experton Group/ISG compares Full IT Business Transformation Providers in the German competitive landscape in Digital Transformation Benchmark 2017

The Experton Group/ISG, one of the leading independent ICT research, advisory, and consulting firms for mid-sized and large companies, classifies CANCOM as “leading” in Digital Transformation Services and Solutions for mid-sized companies – with respect both to competitive strength and to portfolio attractiveness.

Digital transformation is sweeping through all departments and sectors

Advancing digitalization in all areas of life and work is forcing companies in all industries to gradually convert their products, services, and business processes. To ensure sustainability, it is becoming increasingly important to innovate within existing processes and transform business by means of new products and solutions or offerings. The technical challenges of infrastructure modernization in particular should be accompanied by a search for new business models that are based on enhanced agility. In this search, companies must often rely on assistance.

“Based on more than two decades of experience, we are familiar with the challenges and IT requirements of these businesses, especially of mid-sized German companies. The group of companies that have called on our comprehensive cloud portfolio for assistance in the matter of digitalization and the reorientation of IT that is often associated with it is continuously growing,” says CANCOM SE’s COO, Rudolf Hotter. “We are proud of the ‘Digital Transformation Leader Germany’ distinction and view it as further proof of CANCOM’s strong position and the attractiveness of our portfolio in the area of consulting and integration.”

The Experton Group/ISG’s “Digital Transformation Vendor Benchmark 2017” provides a comparison of IT solution, consulting, and integration providers in the German-speaking area. CANCOM’s categorization as leader in Digital Transformation Services and Solutions can be attributed to the broad coverage of individual sub-markets involving IT trend issues such as Cloud Computing, Mobile Enterprise/Digital Workspace, and Security in CANCOM’s portfolio. For instance, CANCOM is already among the leaders in the IT Trend Vendor Benchmarks in the areas of Cloud Computing, Mobile Enterprise/Digital Workspace and Security.
