House of IT News: Datalynx Group maintains Focus on its Goal

With three companies under the umbrella of the «House of IT» , the Datalynx Group offers a wide range of IT services, always with the aim of fully satisfying its customers. In order to be perfectly aligned with changing customer requirements in times of digital transformation, it is sharpening its portfolio and adapting its strategy to the new challenges. Organizational changes in key management positions support this process.

Basel, 25 January, 2024. With its companies Datalynx AG, Primetrack AG and skillcloud AG, the Swiss Datalynx Group, which has its headquarters in Basel, covers the entire spectrum of IT expertise. The IT group is updating its portfolio and sharpening its strategy in order to meet the continuous change in customer needs in the context of increasing digitization and to consistently pursue its corporate goal. A restructuring of senior management functions will ensure that internal skills can continue to be optimally deployed in the future. The Group thus continues to consistently pursue its vision of always offering customers a competent, up-to-date, first-class and complete IT service from a single source and at the cutting edge of technology.

The Group's ability to continuously and dynamically adapt to market requirements and customer wishes is impressive, as is its wide range of IT services and products, which the three companies together can provide at a very high level.

Strategic adjustments in the Group

The Datalynx Group is setting a new focus and creating the necessary conditions to professionally meet the challenges of digitization and the continuous changes associated with it in the future through a change within the company management and the appointment of Stefan Heer, a long-standing member of the Executive Board and co-owner, to the position of Chief Technology Officer. This new function will play a key strategic role and enable the Group to move and present itself on the market with even greater agility. Stefan Heer is the ideal candidate for this position. He can now put his exceptional knowledge and immense experience in the field of individual software development and solutions at the service of customers, who can benefit even more directly from technological innovations and the associated contemporary software developments and service offerings.

In order to have sufficient capacity available for this demanding function, Stefan Heer is handing over the management of the «Digital Solutions» division to Stephan Fredrich, CEO of Primetrack AG and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of the Group. The management of skillcloud AG - previously Stephan Fredrich - will be taken over by Datalynx and Group CEO Serge Meyer.

Efficient communication through new management functions

Newly defined management positions and the integration of functions from all operational areas into management will ensure the smooth communication of company-relevant information and the efficient operation of the entire «House of IT» in the service of customers. This team includes Marco Blum (Head Marketing at Datalynx Group AG), David Papale (Head Business Development at Primetrack AG), Timo Seltmann (Head IT Service Center, Primetrack), Kai Peters (Team Lead IT Operations, Primetrack AG), Rainer Ansorg (Team Lead IT Service & Support, Primetrack AG) and Jan Schmitz (Team Lead Talent Acquisition, skillcloud AG).

Serge Meyer, CEO of the entire Datalynx Group, clearly recognizes the need for strategic adjustments to the portfolio and organizational changes, without losing sight of the corporate goals that have been set:

«In line with our corporate vision, we continue to strive for a leading position in the area of digital transformation and all associated fields of activity. We are therefore continuously expanding our product portfolio for the benefit of our customers and adapting it to new needs. We are convinced that the current strategic changes within the management team will bring us a big step closer to achieving our goals.»
