Big Data, Cloud Computing, Digital Transformation and Mobile Applications — with experience from more than 750 successfully completed Projects in the field of business applications, ARCONDIS offers significant added value to the IT departments in global corporations within the agricultural, chemical and food industry.

Our interdisciplinary Consulting Teams have the rare expertise to implement even the most complex requirements into perfect technological solutions: from value-adding research and development to regulatory affairs to commercial operations. Because we know that only scalable and agile systems can meet the dynamism and global self-conception of corporations, we rely on flexible solutions that are based on state-of-the-art technology.

One-hundred percent compliant.

In the process, we also incorporate regulatory challenges into the project planning right from the start.

In the case of the probability that a system should require validation, we make the process 100% compliant. And that is only marginal: It shows time and time again in our work that even companies in a regulated environment can benefit from mobile business applications and cloud concepts.
