Capgemini launches new technology services arm in Europe

by Editor 9/15/2008 4:27:00 PM
Capgemini's SAP Business Solutions unit in Germany and Switzerland will join forces with sd&m software design & management AG to form a new services arm, Capgemini sd&m. The unit will be helmed by Edmund Küpper, currently CEO of sd&m AG, and employ about 2,000 people at ten locations in Switzerland and Germany.

“From a branding perspective, the integration into the extended Capgemini sd&m unit is a logical step for sd&m and a clear message to the market,” says Edmund Küpper, the future chief executive. “As a holistic IT service provider, together with Capgemini's SAP Business Solutions unit, we will serve the increasing demand for process consulting and hybrid solutions covering both custom and standard software applications.”

“We aim to create competitive advantages for our clients by offering an ideal combination of increasing differentiation and efficiency. To achieve this, we will increasingly leverage near-shore and offshore development capabilities as well as the global resources of the Capgemini Group.”

sd&m, a subsidiary of the Capgemini Group since 2001, has until now operated independently in Germany and Switzerland. It specializes in the development and implementation of software solutions.

Capgemini’s SAP Business Solution branch provides consulting services in the area of processes and standard applications.

The new technology services brand will operate in Switzerland and Germany and cover a wide range of services, from process and IT consulting to IT architecture and implementation.

Küpper explains: “Combining these offers will create further growth potential for Capgemini sd&m, which the two units would not have been able to fully tap into independently. Especially against the background of the increasing internationalization of clients and service provision in the IT service industry, we will leverage the strengths of the Capgemini Group together and demonstrate this by our new name.”
