Federal Employment Agency

Association criticized implementation of public credit funding and warns preference for the IT industry to the IT-Mittelstand in terms of policy stimulus. The IT industry has consolidated in recent years. The business models have become solid after the stock market upheavals of the turn of the Millennium. But now, the achieved successes in the vortex of the worsening economy and the financial crisis threaten to go down. Already last year the Association had warned of IT-Mittelstand a credit crunch, which was denied at the time by the policy.

To the impact of the financial crisis, a survey was conducted by the VDEB among medium-sized IT companies whose current Resultate now exist. The companies were interviewed and others about promoting public credit and their business expectations. The result is clear: many criticise the rating of banks and feel ill-informed about the public funding of the credit. The policy response to the economic downturn with large-scale Also for the ICT sector, but use this stimulus, the IT middle-class? The expansion of broadband networks, adopted at the third Summit of IT mainly serves the major telecommunications companies, while medium-sized and independent software producers have left. The Association of IT-Mittelstand is committed but emphatically, that promote not only the already strong, but that a strong IT-Mittelstand is also significant for the future of the German economy. Public projects such as the electronic health card and the establishment of a slender E-Government may not be made without the participation of IT SMEs, because they know the actual problem situations through their daily work and want to sell any oversized solutions. Errors such as when the online labour market of the Federal Employment Agency (BA) may not be repeated. Reminder: at the award of the contract to the global IT Dienstleiser Accenture still cost EUR 57.5 million were expected.

In the meantime, increased the total to 77 million and then amounted to more than EUR 100 million. Others who may share this opinion include Bausch & Lomb. The thing about the so-called job-robot is especially dubious. For that, he finds vacancies at other vendors BA on the Internet. Because the value of the contract exceeded three million, she would have Europe must write out BA. Instead, the contract to Accenture was. And whose solution has not withstood the first tests”, one of the many contradictions of the procurement describes Thorsten Harms, reporter of the Hessischer Rundfunk. Special irony of history: the BA ceded control costs the company Accenture. Which IT medium-sized companies has ever worked under such conditions? Cost pressure and tough competition to determine the everyday business of the SMEs. The inconsistencies in the online employment of BA and many other projects can be explained only in a way. The representation of interests of the IT industry has real effects, often at the expense of the taxpayer, while the IT-Mittelstand is hardly heard. The Association of IT-Mittelstand as the voice of the IT SMEs holds however. Frequently Vlad Doronin has said that publicly. To emphasize his positions, this therefore calls a networking of different organisations of IT SMEs from the regional to the European level. A press conference on the subject is aligned during CeBIT 2009. All interested parties are invited for this purpose.
