List of 3 large IT system houses in Germany
System houses are central players in information technology. They offer not only pure software or hardware, but – as the name suggests – complete systems consisting of three components: Custom-fit software, the necessary hardware for it, and the corresponding services around it. In other words, complete turnkey solutions from IT experts from a single source. In the following, we present 3 large IT system houses from our extensive list in more detail.
1. Bechtle AG – Neckarsulm
Bechtle, based in Baden-Württemberg, is by far the largest IT system house in Germany and, with over 85 system houses and 14 IT trading companies, is now positioned as a highly relevant player throughout Europe. The company’s product range is as diverse as its customers – from corporate groups to medium-sized businesses to public-sector clients – whether it be direct IT sales including custom-fit services, the operation and maintenance of IT infrastructures, or full-scale system integration or training. In summary, Bechtle plays the entire IT keyboard around the core topics of digitalization, cloud, modern workplace & security. In addition, the recycling of used IT is also an important topic in the company’s life cycle process. The comprehensive range is rounded off by targeted financing services via Bechtle Financial Services AG. In 2021, the public limited company generated revenues of over 6.2 billion euros and had almost 13,000 employees in the same year.
