becon takes over the DATAGERRY software from NETHINKS

Unterhaching/Fulda – The DATAGERRY software developed by NETHINKS will be taken over by Munich-based IT service provider becon with immediate effect. The two companies agreed on the takeover in November 2022. With the operation of the DATAGERRY Configuration Management Database (CMDB), becon is expanding its product range in the field of digital documentation and administration databases, while NETHINKS will continue to position itself as a managed service provider following the transfer of the software.

Takeover of DATAGERRY by becon

Following successful negotiations, the acquisition of DATAGERRY software has now been officially confirmed. „We are very happy that DATAGERRY has found a new home. The software is in excellent hands with our partner in Unterhaching,“ says Uwe Bergmann, CEO of NETHINKS. The company from Fulda in eastern Hesse has established itself as a managed service provider in information and communication technology (ICT) and offers comprehensive services in the areas of IT infrastructure and communication. According to Bergmann, a strategic realignment also involves parting with successful projects at the appropriate time. Steffen Rieger, Managing Partner of becon, on the other hand, is looking forward to the addition to the family and adds: „We see DATAGERRY as a perfect addition to our service management portfolio. With the API Management Gateway OpenCelium and the Enterprise CMDB i-doit, DATAGERRY closes a previous gap for the generic recording of customer-specific object types. As a first step, we want to ensure support and seek contact with the community in order to subsequently plan and implement innovations.“ Headquartered in Unterhaching, becon specializes in the digitalization of IT processes and mobile communication infrastructures. According to Rieger, the acquisition of DATAGERRY therefore fits perfectly into the current corporate development.

Open source solution for managing IT environments

DATAGERRY is a generic configuration management database (CMBD) that was developed in 2019 as an open source solution by NETHINKS and leaves the definition of object types such as servers, routers, locations or maintenance contracts entirely up to the user. The software therefore provides an overview of all objects required to operate an IT environment. All important information is immediately visible to users in a central location and easy to find. This is particularly important if, for example, there are disruptions within the IT infrastructure as a result of a fault, and provides decisive advantages in comparison to data management via Excel lists. The special feature of DATAGERRY is that the various object types can be easily and intuitively integrated and adapted in the web interface using a drag & drop function. A connection to external systems and automated export are just as possible as an intelligent search for data or reporting based on existing data. As open source software in the enterprise sector, DATAGERRY can be downloaded for free.
