Centric IT Solutions has sold its Oracle JD Edwards business unit to fellow German firm Steltix, an Oracle Platinum Partner. Going forward, Centric will concentrate on its original SAP HCM business segments and its own solutions for the retail sector.
The Steltix group of companies focuses on the Oracle JD Edwards business and has 150 employees across Europe. Centric employs around 4,300 across Europe and generated turnover of €490m in 2018. JD Edwards specialist consultants from Centric will continue their projects as employees of Steltix Deutschland, and will “remain fully at the disposal of Centric customers in the usual manner”, said Centric.
Steven Wernike (pictured), managing director of Centric IT Solutions, said: “We are concentrating on our core business in order to keep up with the quickening pace of innovation of the product manufacturers. Centric and Steltix have been collaborating in a wide range of projects for some time, and our respective add-on product portfolios complement each other really well.
“By consistently pooling the expertise across the two companies, we can always offer our customers precisely the highly specialised product expertise and experienced expert teams they need for their projects, even as the demands of their system environment grow. ”
Fabian Klose, managing director of Steltix Deutschland, said: “The experienced experts from Centric really enhance our team. Of course, we are also looking forward to working together with the former Centric customers, whose projects we will continue seamlessly with the familiar contact persons.
“We are sure that all of our customers will benefit from the expanded team. This will allow us to offer the companies that use JD Edwards even more resources with pooled expertise for their projects of any size.”
