K-Businesscom becomes CANCOM Austria: Uniform appearance for CANCOM in the DACH region

CANCOM, a leading hybrid IT service provider, has been even more present in the DACH region as well as in Romania and the Czech Republic since the beginning of the year. Austria's leading ICT solution and service provider and digitalization partner K-Businesscom (formerly Kapsch BusinessCom) became part of the CANCOM Group in June 2023. Since the turn of the year, the company and its subsidiaries have been operating under the CANCOM brand in Austria, Romania and the Czech Republic. With the uniform brand identity, CANCOM is strengthening its own positioning and the presence of the brand with a focus on DACH customers. The CANCOM Group grew sustainably in 2023 - to more than 5,600 employees at around 80 locations in the DACH region and beyond. The acquisition of the Austrian ICT solution and service provider K-Businesscom in June 2023 - the largest takeover in the company's history to date - was a key factor in this growth. With the turn of the year, the scope and breadth of the CANCOM brand has now also been expanded, as the company is now also operating under the CANCOM brand for the first time in the Romanian and Czech markets - after Switzerland, where K-Businesscom was already renamed in October. CANCOM has been represented on the Austrian market since 1994 with CANCOM a+d IT solutions GmbH. The competencies and market access of the former K-Businesscom will strengthen and expand CANCOM's presence there. The change of name from K-Businesscom to CANCOM is the next logical step in the course of the operational merger. At the same time, the change of name underlines the joint growth in the DACH region. "The merger has brought together two companies whose values, culture and core competencies harmonize perfectly. We are a team that pulls together. Our customers receive cross-border solutions and services from a single source - and we want to make this visible both internally and externally under one brand. Our common purpose 'We transform for the better' is our guiding principle," says Rüdiger Rath, CEO of CANCOM. DACH customers benefit from the bundled product and service portfolios of both companies, but also from new synergies through complementary additions, such as in the areas of AI, digital solutions & software development. With a broad workplace solutions portfolio, CANCOM a+d IT solutions GmbH in Austria offers holistic solutions with device lifecycle management and employee choice programs for end devices from a wide range of manufacturers. The former K-Businesscom, now CANCOM Austria, brought extensive capabilities in the areas of Intelligent Networks, Data and IoT to the CANCOM Group portfolio, in addition to existing joint strengths in the business areas of Public Cloud, Managed Services and Security. CANCOM Austria's range of IT solutions is therefore very similar to CANCOM's portfolio in Germany and includes a holistic offering consisting of consulting, implementation, services and the operation of IT systems. CANCOM Austria also develops its own software solutions and platforms for innovative business models. Thanks to its Kapsch roots, CANCOM in Austria combines 130 years of innovative strength with many years of experience as a market leader for network, data center, security, collaboration and managed services. About CANCOM: As a hybrid IT service provider, CANCOM accompanies companies into the digital future. We support our customers in reducing the complexity of their IT and expanding their business success through the use of state-of-the-art technology. In order to meet the IT needs of companies, organizations and the public sector holistically, CANCOM offers tailor-made IT from A to Z from a single source. The CANCOM Group's range of IT solutions includes consulting, implementation, services and the operation of IT systems. Customers benefit from the extensive expertise and a holistic and innovative portfolio that covers the IT requirements necessary for a successful digital transformation of companies. As a hybrid IT integrator and service provider, we deliver a range of services and solutions that includes business solutions and managed services such as cloud computing, analytics, enterprise mobility, IT security, hosting and as-a-service offerings. The more than 5,600 employees of the internationally active CANCOM Group with around 80 locations in the DACH region, Belgium, Slovakia, Romania and the Czech Republic as well as an efficient partner network guarantee market presence and customer proximity. The CANCOM Group is managed by Rüdiger Rath (CEO), Jochen Borenich (CSO) and Thomas Stark (CFO). The company is headquartered in Munich. CANCOM generated annual sales of around 1.3 billion euros in 2022. The Group parent company CANCOM SE is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in the TecDAX and SDAX (ISIN DE0005419105).

"As a sparring partner, KBC brings the cloud to Austrian soil and is also a strong partner for topics such as AI, Azure infrastructure and cybersecurity." KBC's expertise in the field of IT security will be used together with Microsoft technologies to better protect companies in Austria against cybersecurity threats.

Herba Chemosan - SAP - K-Businesscom

Herba Chemosan Apotheker-AG, Austria's leading pharmaceutical wholesaler and logistics expert, left the US group McKesson in 2023 as part of a management buy-out. This also involved a strategic realignment with regard to IT infrastructure, applications, solutions and cybersecurity. Herba Chemosan is relying on a cloud strategy with "RISE with SAP" and K-Businesscom's expertise in the areas of networks, IT security and digitalization. RISE with SAP is a comprehensive service package that supports companies in their transformation into the digital age. Business Process Intelligence also offers a comprehensive toolbox for process analyses that can be used to better understand processes, compare them with industry standards and optimize them accordingly. "With Herba Chemosan, we were able to implement a "lighthouse project" for RISE with SAP in Austria," explains Christina Wilfinger , Managing Director of SAP Austria. "With RISE, Herba Chemosan has not only clearly opted for a future-proof cloud strategy, but can now also tailor the transformation to its individual business requirements and has access to migration tools, business process intelligence and business technology platforms on the way to becoming an intelligent company." K-Businesscom (Member of CANCOM Group) joined forces with SAP to deliver a holistic approach for a sustainably successful solution for Herba Chemosan. "We are pleased that we were able to contribute our ICT expertise in maintaining critical infrastructure, which we have already proven with numerous other customers," explains Jochen Borenich , Member of the Board CANCOM Group and Member of the Board K-Businesscom until August 2023. "The IT security services from our own Security Operation Center, the KBC Cyber Defense Center, ensure permanent security of all process data and information - not insignificant for a distributor who was responsible for the disposition and distribution of vaccines in Corona, among other things. Furthermore, the partnership with Herba Chemosan will enable us to plan and implement digitalization steps together in the future. We usually work across sectors, bring companies together and develop new use cases or business models together. The logistics sector is of course particularly exciting." Maximilian von Künsberg Sarre , CFO/COO at Herba Chemosan adds: "Having gone through a similar process with the spin-off from the Kapsch Group over the last 1.5 years, K-Businesscom understands the special requirements that we are currently facing at Herba Chemosan. This enables them to provide us with holistic advice on IT architecture, infrastructure, cloud transformation and many other topics." Herba Chemosan Apotheker-AG decided to switch to RISE with SAP as a flexible cloud ERP solution. In future, processes in the supply chain are to be continuously optimized through additional services based on the data obtained. "As a result of the spin-off from the US company McKesson, we were and still are faced with the challenge of restructuring our IT architecture and services. And under relatively high time pressure. At the same time, we have the opportunity to completely redefine our digitalization strategy for the coming years. With SAP and a highly available ERP solution from the cloud and K-Businesscom as the leading local Austrian system integrator and service provider, we have found two strong partners who can support us in these steps," explains von Künsberg Sarre.

Red Bull and K-Businesscom take action against cyberattacks

SOC Vienna recognizes 1.2 trillion potential threats "Cyber risks have reached a new dimension," says Jochen Borenich, CEO CANCOM SE/CSO (until August 2023 CEO at K-Businesscom). "Our Security Operation Center in Vienna alone identified and managed an incredible 1.2 trillion potential risks for our customers in 2022. We were able to successfully fend off critical attacks." Today, practically all companies, from small and medium-sized enterprises to large corporations, are confronted with attacks from the internet. The attacks are directed against IT infrastructures, but increasingly also against production, which is often still inadequately protected. If the criminals succeed in paralyzing operations, it takes an average of 30 days before the threat is averted and production is back to normal. The downtime costs and reputational damage in such cases are enormous. IT professionals take over cyber defense In view of the potential damage and the increasingly complex threat scenarios, companies are professionalizing their cyber defence. K-Businesscom's external specialists take on the task of identifying potential risks as early as possible and averting dangers before they occur. Unlike traditional in-house IT in companies, the specialized IT professionals are able to counter the fraudsters "at eye level" - for example by using artificial intelligence. Red Bull relies on cyber defense from K-Businesscom Consumer goods group Red Bull, for example, relies on the expertise of K-Businesscom. The global market leader for energy drinks pursues a holistic security strategy and at the same time focuses on particularly vulnerable areas. The Vulnerability Management module from K-Businesscom's Cyber Defense Center provides this building block. This is a leading Security Operation Center in Europe. In the specially protected high-security environment, the experts operate a central scanning and management infrastructure: Red Bull's global network environment is automatically scanned for unknown IT assets and tested for known software IT vulnerabilities. If unknown devices are detected in the network, Red Bull is informed immediately and receives recommendations for action. The primary goal is to identify potential threats as early as possible and track them until they have been neutralized. Digital fire department ready for action at any time "Like a digital fire department, our employees are on standby around the clock, seven days a week," says Borenich. "Our job is to prevent cyberattacks and keep the damage as low as possible in an emergency." Security concept can be expanded on a modular basis If the worst comes to the worst, speed and transparency are top priorities in order to reveal the fraudsters' patterns of movement. "The continuous checks provide us with the necessary transparency and enable us to take important precautionary measures," says Jimmy Heschl, Global Head of Digital Security, Red Bull. As threat scenarios are constantly evolving, it is also important for the Group to have an adaptable and expandable security concept. This is ensured by the individual modules in the Cyber Defense Center. "KBC's services are an important building block in our security toolbox and offer us the opportunity to maintain and continuously improve our security level," says Heschl. In future, K-Businesscom will offer customers the combined expertise of two leading ICT providers in the area of cyber security. This is because K-Businesscom will become part of the CANCOM Group." K-Businesscom operates Security Operation Centers (SOC) in Vienna, Klagenfurt and St. Gallen in Switzerland. CANCOM has Security Operation Centers in Germany. Conclusion The risk of companies in Europe falling victim to cyber attacks is increasing. At the same time, the threat scenarios are becoming increasingly complex. In this situation, it is important to meet criminals "at eye level" and to professionalize cyber defence. Small and medium-sized companies as well as corporations such as Red Bull rely on the expertise of K-Businesscom. The modular components in the ICT provider's Cyber Defense Center enable an adaptable and expandable security concept to counter potential threats as far in advance as possible. About K-Businesscom: K-Businesscom AG (formerly Kapsch Businesscom) is Austria's leading ICT solution and service provider and digitalization partner.

K-Businesscom wins the HPE Central Europe Service Provider of the Year Award with HPE GreenLake-based Workload-as-a-Service

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced the winners of the HPE Partner of the Year Awards 2023. The awards recognize HPE partners who have demonstrated commitment and success in delivering value to their customers on their digital transformation journey. This award was given to HPE partners who have achieved exceptional results in terms of financial performance, innovative solutions and meaningful business outcomes. "It is a privilege to honor the winners of the 2023 HPE Partner Awards. These partners have successfully demonstrated the ability to innovate and execute business outcomes and outstanding experiences for customers," said Gilles Thiebaut, SVP of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem and Business Development, HPE. "Our partner ecosystem continutes to be a top priority at HPE and these awards are one way we highlight some of the partners that are driving impressive results and outcomes for customers". "Workload as a Service (WaaS) enables companies to outsource their workloads to KBC, which takes care of the entire infrastructure, scaling and maintenance. This leads to a significant reduction in internal workloads and allows companies to focus on their core competencies. With WaaS, companies can scale resources quickly and on demand to cope with peak loads or implement new projects without having to invest in hardware. KBC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise are working closely together to ensure that customers in Austria benefit from this innovative solution. The combination of K-Businesscom's expertise in the field of local infrastructure and HPE's leading technologies makes it possible to offer customized solutions that meet the specific requirements of customers. HPE GreenLake provides customers with a consumption-based billing model that offers the flexibility of a cloud with the advantages of on-premise infrastructures. KBC can therefore offer its customers elements of an on-premise cloud infrastructure from the standard portfolio with HPE. This includes storage solutions, servers and network components, among other things. Challenges that arise in connection with bandwidth, data security or latency can thus be overcome. Customers also benefit from faster provision of the infrastructure thanks to a fixed contract, as there is no need for a quotation process involving several rounds of negotiations with the manufacturer. Price hedging over the term of the contract can be used to counteract price fluctuations on the market. For customers, there is no need for price negotiations in the event of license extensions. A significant added value of the HPE GreenLake package is the price reduction through economies of scale. With higher call volumes, a price reduction can be achieved by scaling price bands upwards. What makes HPE Greenlake unique is its sustainable approach. Companies can scale their IT resources according to demand and only pay for the resources they actually use. This enables optimal resource utilization while reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions. HPE GreenLake thus helps to reduce the environmental impact and supports companies in achieving their sustainability goals. "The collaboration between K-Businesscom and Hewlett Packard Enterprise enables our customers to offer services with the flexibility and speed of the public cloud combined with the security and control of a local infrastructure. The long-term cost transparency and the availability of buffer capacities are the basis for the rapid and reliable provision of different workloads. This approach, which is unique on the Austrian market, ensures a particularly high level of customer satisfaction thanks to individual concepts and the simultaneous realization of economies of scale," says Christian Neuhauser, Vice President System Integration at K-Businesscom.
