Central hub for development of digital business models

  • IT campus is new headquarters of Bosch global IT
  • Growth driver: IT goes from cost factor to core competence
  • Campus provides highly attractive working environment for IT and software experts
  • Prof. Asenkerschbaumer: “The new campus is a clear sign of our commitment to Stuttgart as a technological location.”

Stuttgart, Germany – With its new IT campus located in Stuttgart-Feuerbach, the Bosch Group has opened a center of competence that is dedicated to the coordination of global IT activities at Bosch. Around 2,000 of the operating unit’s 7,500 associates work at the state-of-the-art campus, which is set to further accelerate Bosch’s transformation process into an IoT company. “Web-enabled products and data-based services are making an ever stronger contribution to our growth. Accordingly, the role our IT plays is also changing. In the past, the unit’s main focus was on expanding Bosch’s global IT infrastructure, supporting users, and providing PCs and monitors. But today its tasks increasingly include promoting the advancement of innovative IT and software solutions,” says Prof. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer, deputy chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH, who is also responsible for IT. “The campus is our new central hub for the development of digital business models. It combines the best of both worlds: the products and experience of a technology company that has been an established presence for decades, and the dynamism of a young IT company. The new campus is also a further clear sign of our commitment to Stuttgart.”

The Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services. It employs roughly 400,500 associates worldwide (as of December 31, 2017).
