Series success: Citrix and Splunk virtualisation awards
Spring 2017 was a successful one for Bechtle with the group able to scoop up a total of nine awards. All in the virtualisation sector. Amongst these, four personal awards were given to employees who had performed exceptionally well.

The IT Systems Integrator Bechtle Steffen Schweiz won the award for Most Influencing CSA Partner Switzerland, New Business Creation.

Mauro Di Vincenzo, Head of Team Workspace at Bechtle Steffen was particularly proud: “This award is recognition of our Citrix expertise which we were able to incorporate not only in existing Citrix environments, but also in several new projects.”

Personal successes.

Four awards were presented to Bechtle Group employees who were singled-out for their expertise and implementation skills. Michael Schowald from Bechtle’s Austrian IT Systems Integrator secured the award for Partner Sales Manager of the Year Austria. His colleague Alexander Dietrich was named System Engineer of the Year. Eckart Gutzeit and Christophe Beaugrand walked away with the title of Best System Engineers in Switzerland.


Employees at Bechtle Austria were also rewarded for their hard work on Citrix projects.

“We are delighted to have received this recognition of our performance in the DACH region. Comprehensive certifications together with our colleague's high level of commitment are essential to us being able to continue offering first class solutions for workspaces, networking and mobility with Citrix technologies in the future,” says Roland König, Managing Director at Bechtle Munich/Regensburg and Head of Virtualisation at Bechtle.


Bechtle Germany is very pleased to receive awards for the best performance of all partners in the networking sector and for the growth achieved in the solutions business.

Splunk EMEA Award.

Bechtle also received an award from Splunk. Bechtle’s partner presented the award in April as part of the Bechtle Competence Days in Neckarsulm. “Being awarded Splunk EMEA Rookie Partner of the Year is an honour for us and shows that we’re on the right track. We want to be at the forefront in virtualisation in the EMEA region – and stay there,” Roland König explains.

Splunk’s is headquartered in California and offers log, monitoring and reporting technology for IT system administrators. As a leading platform for operational intelligence, Splunk makes data visible that would otherwise remain hidden, helping to make companies more productive, profitable, competitive and safe.

Dr. Gregor Klos, DACH Partner Account Manager at Splunk, on the partnership with Bechtle:



In the first ten months of their partnership with Splunk, the Bechtle Group successfully completed its first customer projects and also built up a solid project pipeline. The level of commitment that is reflected in over 30 sales and technical certifications is extraordinary. Bechtle is therefore well equipped to advise new customers on operational intelligence with Splunk and to develop new use cases for existing customers. We’re very proud of that! We are looking forward to a promising partnership with Bechtle—especially in new market segments.

Bechtle Competence (C) Days 2019.

More than 3,500 participants made the two-day in-house fair at Bechtle Platz 1 another flagship event based around the most important current business IT questions.

Digitalising the construction industry.

While there is broad consensus in the construction industry that digitalisation is the way of the future, surprisingly little action is being taken. Large construction firms and planning offices are well on their way, but small and medium-sized firms—which make up 95 per cent of the industry—are finding it difficult to get started. Most of them are stuck deciding how best to optimise their investment while minimising risk, taking into account their specific circumstances. But taking a business digital doesn’t have to entail an enormously complex project. So how does one go about it effectively?

A vision to behold.

What is it that drives a company to success and motivates employees to give their all? A clear vision. Visions are gleaming aspirations calling out to us, sparking enthusiasm, encouraging and inspiring us. What starts out as a beacon of light in the distance eventually becomes an attainable goal within our reach. Our path is shaped by the confluence of vision and strategy—both focused on a desire to transform.
