The ICT market in Germany

The German ICT market is very broad of course and many different type of ICT companies exist. We are active in various fields of ICT and see various trends via our contacts with business owners of ICT companies. Some trends over the last years in the German ICT market have been:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Mobile Apps
  • IT Outsourcing
  • Virtualization
  • IT Security
  • BPM (Business Process Management)
  • Business Intelligence
  • Home Technology and Automation
  • Social Media (services)

Here we focus on one of the items with a lot of attention which is IT Outsourcing. Outsourcing is gaining more acceptance in German speaking countries. More than 80% of companies from the DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) region outsource (part of) their IT services. This means that outsourcing has become more common in the German speaking region. This can be an interesting opportunity for buying a German ICT company active in this field. Especially more standardised services are being outsourced. At the moment IT services are still mostly outsourced to providers onshore. IT application development and customisation is a specific field with opportunities to outsource.Like in many other countries there are quite some different ICT clusters in Germany. It is understood that the free sharing of knowledge between ICT companies in similar fields can have a positive effect on the progress of the whole group or cluster. These ICT clusters and networks keep on developing and get bigger. Here you find an overview of some of the most important ICT clusters in Germany:

  • Software Cluster Rhein Main (Hessen)
  • Bwcon (Baden-Württemberg)
  • Networking for IT Innovation (Saarland)
  • Mobile Solution Group Bremen (Bremen)
  • Regina Aachen (North Rhine - Westphalia)
  • IT Cluster BICC - NET (Bavaria)
