Unterhaching/Fulda – The software DATAGERRY developed by NETHINKS will be taken over by the Munich IT service provider becon with immediate effect. The two companies agreed on the acquisition in November 2022. With the operation of the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) DATAGERRY, becon expands its product offering in the area of digital documentation and management databases, while NETHINKS continues to position itself as a managed service provider after the handover of the software.


Acquisition of DATAGERRY by becon

After 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 the information and communications technology (ICT) and offers holistic services in the areas of IT infrastructure and communications. A strategic realignment also includes divesting successful projects at the appropriate time, Bergmann added. 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-doitDATAGERRY closes a previous gap for the generic recording of customer-specific object types. In the first step, we want to ensure support and seek contact with the community in order to subsequently plan and implement innovations.” The company becon headquartered in Unterhaching, specializes in the digitization of IT processes and mobile communication infrastructures. According to Rieger, the acquisition of DATAGERRY therefore fits perfectly into the current development of the company.

Open source solution for managing IT environments

DATAGERRY is a generic Configuration Management Database (CMBD) developed in 2019 as an open source solution by NETHINKS that leaves the definition of object types such as servers, routers, sites or maintenance contracts completely to the user. The software thus provides an overview of all objects that are necessary for operating an IT environment. All important information is immediately visible and easy to find in one central location for users. This is particularly important if, for example, there are disruptions within the IT infrastructure as a result of a malfunction, and provides decisive advantages when comparing data management via Excel lists. The special feature of DATAGERRY is that the different object types can be integrated and customized very easily and intuitively with a drag & drop function in the web interface. A connection with external systems and an automated export are just as possible as the intelligent search for data or a reporting based on the existing data. As open source software in the enterprise sector, DATAGERRY can be downloaded and used free of charge.
