Cloud solutions, SD-WAN and Cyber Security Services - digital solutions for a company whose business is based on paper. The Austrian group Prinzhorn recycles paper and cardboard and produces packaging made of corrugated board. This requires complex IT and network operations, which Prinzhorn has outsourced to T-Systems. Manfred Ofner, CIO at Prinzhorn, wanted to achieve greater transparency of IT services through outsourcing. In an interview with BEST PRACTICE, he explains that Prinzhorn can now use local monitoring systems and dashboards to assess details such as bandwidth utilization and even the overall status much better. Ofner and his IT professionals can detect attacks almost in real time with the Security Operation Center, SOC for short.
A campus network is a combination of a private and a public network - for example for industrial companies.

“Agricultural subsidies are not only a highly complex topic, but also one that attracts a great deal of public attention,” says Gottfried Milde, spokesman for the WIBank management. "Hessian farmers need planning security and financial leeway for important investments. They are dependent on prompt disbursement of the subsidies." The development bank, part of Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen (Helaba), provides development programmes for Hessian companies, founders and private individuals and facilitates their access to state, federal and EU development funds.
SAP provides a number of proven basic constructs that are very useful for the development business. At the same time, our platform is open for country-specific and subject-specific adaptations and at the same time ready for HANA," says Uwe Ackermann, project manager at IBYKUS AG, which developed the solution. The software carries out the conveying processes individually and at the same time in a standardised way. It thus dramatically reduces the administrative costs for subsidy management.
