Dortmund/Budapest | 18. November 2020
adesso has acquired 51% of Budapest-based LeanNet, an up-and-coming start-up specialising in cloud-native technologies. This acquisition amplifies adesso’s technology expertise as an IT service provider. Cloud-native technologies are the key to leveraging the benefits of modern cloud computing architectures more efficiently. Significant potential can now be unlocked thanks to rising network bandwidths, boosting demand for such solutions in the economy.
Technology start-up LeanNet is a pioneer in cloud-native technology and helps migrate organisations’ IT architecture to flexible, cloud-based infrastructures. Benefits include improved scalability and reliability in enterprise IT while achieving significant long-term cost savings. adesso Hungary, which was founded in 2019 as a national subsidiary of adesso SE, has a wealth of expertise in artificial intelligence, data science, cloud computing and cloud transformation. In Hungary, adesso has specialised in IT consulting and services for the banking, insurance, automotive, manufacturing and life science industries.
Most of today's companies are lacking in the necessary competencies when it comes to cloud transformation. With its extensive experience in the field, adesso can apply multiple approaches from similar assignments. By investing in LeanNet, the IT service provider is now enhancing its portfolio with the addition of technological experience that promises synergies across the entire adesso Group.
Professor Dr Udo Bub is Managing Director of adesso Hungary and combines this position with his role as Professor of Informatics at elite Budapest university ELTE and as faculty director specialising in cloud architectures and methods, artificial intelligence, data science and industry 4.0. Udo Bub came across the two LeanNet founders and Managing Directors Dr Péter Megyesi and Dr Dávid Szabó as part of his university research activities: “The expertise at LeanNet is impressive. The company is a true pioneer in the innovative field of digitalisation and has a promising future ahead of it. We at adesso are delighted to shape the cloud-native era with such trailblazers.”
Dr Volker Gruhn, adesso founder and Chairman of the Supervisory Board, teaches and researches digital transformation in the economy and in society and reviewed the strategic and business potential of adesso’s latest acquisition in Hungary: “LeanNet has huge potential. Cloud-based applications and control over the right infrastructure technologies are becoming business enablers. The expertise involved in developing cloud-native applications is essential in leveraging the advantages of genuine cloud basing. Without suitable software structures, cloud solutions can quickly overrun on cost.”
