  • Arvato Systems wins contract for IT back-end services and data center operations
  • EWE is one of the significant energy service providers in Germany

Gütersloh - In a sophisticated Europe-wide tendering process, EWE Aktiengesellschaft in Oldenburg has been looking for competent service providers to supply various services in the IT area. Arvato Systems won one of five lots for "IT back-end services and data center operations" and was awarded the contract. "We are very pleased to expand our existing partnership with EWE and swb," said Olaf Steinbrink, the managing director at Arvato Systems responsible for the energy sector.

As a digitization and IT partner to the energy industry, Arvato Systems is one of the most experienced players in the market and supports numerous large municipal utilities and network operators in optimally setting up their processes, organization, and services. The company has been advising the energy industry for more than 30 years. It supports the Digital Transformation of utilities - from strategy and process consulting to cloud solutions and platform solutions as well as IT and infrastructure services.

The current contract win is an excellent success for Arvato Systems. "Being able to support EWE as one of the major energy service providers in Germany makes us extremely happy," said Olaf Steinbrink. With the contract for "backend services", Arvato Systems secured the most extensive block of tasks in the Europe-wide tender. The service contract with EWE, which has now been won, runs for several years. For EWE's subsidiary swb, the company has provided relevant IT services for many years.

Olaf Steinbrink concludes: "The energy industry is an important business segment for Arvato Systems, which we continuously develop. In this respect, the cooperation with the EWE Group is also precious for us in strategic terms."
