Since January 1, 2023, fme AG has been offering its customers an expanded portfolio with the business units »Collaboration & Modern Workplace« and »Cloud Technology & Data Analytics« in order to increasingly support small and medium-sized companys as well as corporations in these focus areas with a broader range of services to meet the challenges of digital transformation. The new business units will be managed by Dennis Gräff and Tobias Stein as business unit directors. We are delighted that we have been able to recruit experienced colleagues with many years of experience for the new positions.

»The workplace of the future is digital. Employees need – and want – to work when and where they want. Remote, hybrid and asynchronous working is the new normal. The Modern Workplace must take this into account, and companies are challenged to offer solutions that help their employees master this situation. This is where the offering of our additional business unit comes in. In addition, Employee Experience Management is becoming increasingly important to ensure employee satisfaction and loyalty, which drives customer satisfaction«, explains Daniel Pelke, Member of the Executive Board. Microsoft 365 offers a wide range of services that – when used correctly – help to close the physical gap and bring employees, customers, co-workers and the company closer together. With Microsoft Teams as the central enterprise hub, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for collaboration and content services, and Microsoft Viva products to enhance the employee experience, Microsoft 365 addresses all of these issues in the modern workplace. Our experience of nearly two decades has been incorporated into our services portfolio for Microsoft SharePoint.

Due to the pandemic, many companies quickly transitioned office work to remote using Microsoft’s readily available tools. We helped our customers implement the tools, customize them to their needs, transform their processes, and use them efficiently and effectively. With our experience in ECM, SharePoint, communications services and project management, we have identified the needs of the market and will address these more strongly in the future with the new business unit »Collaboration & Modern Workplace«.

Dennis Gräff | Director Business Unit Employee Experience Management

After completing his studies in computer science at the TU Braunschweig, Dennis Gräff joined fme AG in March 2005 as a developer in the area of Enterprise Content Management and later assumed the role of project manager here. Starting in 2015, he led various teams and was responsible for the delivery of projects. Since January 2023 he is responsible as Business Unit Director for the newly founded business unit Collaboration and Modern Workplace with Microsoft 365 technologies.

In the area of Business Intelligence & Advanced Analytics, we rely on a strong partnership with Qlik. »Qlik values our expertise around their products, especially in cloud topics. In more and more projects, access to data in the cloud and cloud services such as machine learning play an essential role. Data engineering and data science are now based almost exclusively on cloud services. They use the sometimes large volumes of data in companies, enrich them with freely or commercially available data from external service providers and create new insights for our customers with the help of algorithms«, Daniel Pelke continues. With the new business unit »Cloud Technology & Data Analytics«, we offer our customers almost unique expertise. We support them in the design, development and implementation of state-of-the-art business intelligence (BI) and data science solutions in the cloud, enabling them to make fast and informed decisions at any time and everywhere.
