dbi services establishes Bern office

Delémont, December 4, 2018 – dbi services – a Swiss firm specialized in middleware solutions – is expanding its presence in Switzerland by establishing an office in the capital city. The Bern office will open its doors on 15th December 2018 at Marktgasse 45. It will be headed by Kurt Meier, who will be in charge of developing operations in the Bern region. Delivery and project management will be handled by Michael Wirz. This fourth subsidiary matches the expansion strategy of dbi services, aimed at being closer to clients. It will entail the creation of five positions in Oracle and Open Source technologies within 18 months.

A new location and five newly created jobs

To meet the demand of its ever-growing client base in the Bern region, dbi services is settling in the city of Bern in modern, fully equipped premises. Kurt Meier has been hired to head the subsidiary and to develop business in this part of the country. His experience and skills, particularly in relation to the launch of the Zurich office of dbi services, make him the ideal candidate for this mission. He is also in charge of setting up the consulting team that will serve the firm’s clients in the region, thus generating five new positions by mid-2020. Delivery and project management as well as quality assurance will be handled by Michael Wirz, Database Analyst and a seasoned Oracle specialist.

Proximity at the heart of the approach

Operating since 2010 on the middleware infrastructure markets, dbi services is already present in Delémont, Basel, Zurich and Nyon, and is experiencing significant growth. The launch of the Bern office is part of an expansion strategy aimed at getting closer to clients and becoming their preferred partner.

David Hueber, CEO of dbi services: “Our office in the city of Bern meets a client demand and our desire to offer a locally-based service. This region is also strategic given the presence of the many federal administrative entities and major companies that are likely to be attracted to our cutting-edge offering.”

dbi services becomes Red Hat Advanced Business Partner

To better meet the need of Open Source technologies, dbi services strengthens its partnership with Red Hat – the world’s largest non-proprietary technology provider – and moves from the status of “Ready Partner” to “Advanced Business Partner”. This evolution allows the company based in Delémont to provide its customers with the latest solutions along with the certified experts for building and operating cutting-edge infrastructures based on Red Hat solutions

For some months now, dbi services is moving forward down the path of non-proprietary technologies. In February 2018, the company created an Open Source team headed by Daniel Westermann and established partnerships with suppliers such as EnterpriseDB, Severalnines, Cloudera and Docker.

To extend its network, dbi services initially became Red Hat Ready Partner, the first level of partnership proposed by the Raleigh-based firm. To be able to serve its customers with increased efficiency, dbi services recently took one step further in this partnership and became Advanced Business Partner. This status allows the Swiss company to have direct access to Red Hat as well as the required certifications for providing customers with state-of-the-art infrastructure based on Red Hat solutions.

By entering this level of partnership with Red Hat, we demonstrate our will to diversify our solutions as well as our commitment to Open Source solutions in order to offer price-attractive and high-value solutions to meet the needs of our customers.” explains Daniel Westermann, Senior Consultant & Technology Leader Open Infrastructure at dbi services.
