Based in Essen, Karstadt Warenhaus GmbH has 82 department stores and a total of around 8,000 IT users.

Originally, the company stored its data on an internal server. The IT department was focused on modernizing IT services while simultaneously cutting operating costs. An essential aspect in this process was to identify all of the various dependencies early on. utilitas converted the company’s entire e-mail environment to Exchange Online, and replaced the file service storage with a managed StorSimple from utilitas – which resulted in practically no changes in operation for IT users.

The best thing for Karstadt: In addition to considerably cutting its operating costs, choosing our Managed Services means that the company doesn’t need to worry about a thing.
