Readers’ Choice at the IT-AWARDS 2021: adesso wins BigData-Insider Award 2021

Celebrations at adesso: For the first time, the IT service provider has triumphed at the IT-AWARDS 2021 organised by the trade magazine BigData-Insider. After finishing third last year, adesso took home the platinum trophy for first place in the category “Big Data Consulting”. The IT service provider sees this as confirmation that it is pursuing the right strategy in promoting the “data-driven company of the future”, which can hold its own in global competition.

adesso is convinced that data and its intelligent use are what drive innovation in business. Its latest campaign, the “New School of IT”, shows companies how to become “data minded”. This concept is about strategically analysing the wealth of data that firms collect and using the results as a basis and a guide for processes and decisions. Benedikt Bonnmann, Head of the Data & Analytics business area at adesso, and Christian Mertens received the winner’s trophy today at the award ceremony organised by the specialist publisher Vogel IT-Medien: “Winning the prestigious award for Big Data Consulting means a great deal to us. As an all-round IT service provider, we have – for the first time – seen off strong competition from the leading specialist analytics companies in Germany. This is a pleasing reflection of how satisfied our customers are with the D&A consulting we offer,” says data specialist Bonnmann.

His colleague Christian Mertens, who heads the Data Engineering division at adesso, knows where the problems currently lie for companies: “Businesses appreciate the fact that we are a one-stop shop with the necessary technological and analytics expertise as well as a deep understanding of the specific challenges of their sectors. We offer all this – embedded in a carefully conceived management concept for transforming businesses into data-driven organisations. That’s what the ‘New School of IT’ is about.”

adesso advises and supports leading companies across all sectors on a wide range of technologies in the fields of data strategy, data warehousing, data engineering, data science as well as AI and machine learning. It gauges the potential of the available data and helps to implement data and analytics projects.

The platinum IT award 2021 for Big Data Consulting coincides with another happy event at adesso. The IT service provider has just won its largest individual contract to date for its Data & Analytics portfolio. In the coming years, one of Germany’s largest statutory health insurance companies plans to work with adesso to transform itself into a data-driven organisation that focuses systematically on customer interests using new, data-driven business models.

Today marked the seventh time the coveted IT awards established by Vogel IT-Medien were presented. This year saw the highest number of votes cast by readers – some 63,000 – since the awards were launched in 2015. The manufacturers and providers that entered the competition have now grown to encompass a total of eight subject-specific portals. The 430 entrants came from the areas of big data, blockchain technology, cloud computing, data centres, development, network infrastructure, IT security and storage.
