Daten und Werkzeuge in einer Cloud zur Verfügung zu stellen, bringt Vorteile und neue Möglichkeiten.

Cloud Services

Access at any time and from any location, improved team work between internal and external employees, individual customer service – Storing data and tools in a cloud provides advantages and new possibilities. Are you considering stepping into the cloud? Let us show you the advantages.

What does cloud mean?

A cloud is when IT services are outsourced to external service providers, from computing services and storage capacities (Infrastructure-as-a-Service = IaaS) to the provision of platforms (PaaS) or the use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in various forms.




Are you unsure whether cloud or on-premises is the right solution for you? Read the interview with Philippe Lindegger to find out what questions companies should ask themselves.

Public, Private or Hybrid?


  • Public: Openly accessible via the internet (Dropbox, Google, Microsoft 365, Adobe CC etc.)
  • Private: Own or externally operated services that are made accessible to a company’s own employees only for reasons of data protection and IT security.
  • Hybrid: Mixture of public and private cloud. Certain services are run via the internet by public providers, whereas applications and data that are critical to data protection (e.g. in accordance with ISO) are operated and processed within the company.
