IT Engineering

The foundation for every digital solution is a powerful, scalable IT infrastructure. It facilitates the automation of processes, thus increasing productivity.

The basics

Our IT infrastructures form the basis for big data platformsmobile applications, scalable web architectures, high-performance shop systems, and much more. We are technology-agnostic and are guided by the needs and wants of our customers.

From network automation to infrastructure and cloud deployment, our IT Engineering & Operations team provides comprehensive, integrated expertise in all requisite technology and methods. We work very closely with project development teams to tailor the infrastructure extremely precisely to the software. This creates modern, dynamic IT environments which scale faster and thus form the necessary basis for agile operations.

Sustainable infrastructure engineering

Behind our IT engineering team are infrastructure experts with more than 10 years of experience in the development, construction, and operation of state-of-the-art, highly scalable infrastructures.

Our offerings range from infrastructure and data centre automation using technologies such as Foreman, Puppet and Ansible to design and operational process implementation – including continuous integration and continuous development, monitoring, security, logging, alerting, and patch management. This approach ensures that our customers receive a sustainable infrastructure from a single source.

Customised infrastructure development

Upon completion of every project, we perform a structured handover and the necessary transfer of knowledge to your company team, often in the form of training courses and coaching sessions. This ensures that each project is put into operation in a sustainable, future-proof manner.

Our developers’ expertise enables us to develop highly individualised solutions. Our IT system engineers’ experience extends far beyond merely expanding and administering existing structures. Our experts have internalised the infrastructure-as-code principle and have a deep understanding of how state-of-the-art (cloud) infrastructures are constructed. Not only, therefore, can our teams utilise existing infrastructure components, but they can, where necessary, make custom adjustments or develop entirely new tools.

In order to provide our customers with a tailor-made IT infrastructure, therefore, we do not only use existing components from infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, or software-as-a-service (IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS) solutions. If necessary, we also develop completely new components and services or modify structures which are already in place.

As a full-service provider, therefore, inovex offers the complete range of knowledge and services that our customers need to ensure the flexible, cost-optimised operation of digital services, whether in the data centre (on-premises) or in the cloud.

Case Studies

dm-drogerie markt: Development of a Fully Automated Data Centre for the Online Shop

When a major brand like dm strategically enters the online market, it creates high expectations. For this reason, their IT subsidiary FILIADATA, which has been responsible for all dm’s IT systems since 1988, launched a project in 2013 which was aimed at laying the foundations for reliable, fail-safe IT operations for dm.de. These included creating a large, fully automated Linux infrastructure in the data centre on which sophisticated web services like the online shop can be operated.


ProSiebenSat.1: DevOps for the Channel Portals

ProSiebenSat.1’s online portals are among the most frequently visited networks in the German Internet market. The sites belonging to the group’s popular TV programmes receive more than 1.3 million visits every day. Behind this success is a sophisticated IT landscape which owes its setup, control and operations to the knowledge of inovex’s IT Engineering & Operations specialists. A close collaborative partnership between the two companies ensures a high level of quality.
