With the company growing 95% year-over-year and recording an overall profitability of 22%, Managing Director Drahomir Hruby has launched Cegeka Czech Republic on an ambitious path – with even more to come in 2017.
After a smooth rebranding, Cegeka Czech Republic embarked on a large-scale and ambitious project in 2016 for J&T Banka, which will continue in 2017. VÚB Banka was also a major client in the last year, for which Cegeka Czech Republic provided an end-to-end virtualization solution. In this project, Cegeka was responsible for migrating the bank’s application Rebecca from Bratislava to a cloud environment in Milan – with exemplary results. The company provided professional services to NCR’s Prague office featuring mobile development on multiple platforms. In addition to this new business, Cegeka Czech Republic has focused heavily on strengthening its nearshoring division, building up two new Sitecore teams to offer digital transformation partnerships to local and international clients. Internally, the new Cegeka website was built by Cegeka Czech Republic using Sitecore.Building multimodal competency
In 2017, Drahomir intends to orient the Czech Republic business toward building a multiplatform, multitalented team ready to tackle both Java and Microsoft development projects. “Not only are we strengthening our Microsoft CRM expertise; we’re also planning on bringing tangible blockchain solutions to the local market,” he elaborates. Other upcoming projects include a Jupiter initiative for a large investment funds player. Resulting in valuable talent acquisition in 2016, the university outreach program of Cegeka Czech Republic will be continued in 2017 to add fresh new approaches and innovative minds to the company’s agile development toolbox.Niche market insights for digital transformation
Drahomir has high expectations for the potential of digital transformation projects at the local level, especially in the financial sector. “We are unique in that we profoundly understand the environments and needs of financial institutions,” he adds.
“That, in addition to our extremely customer-centric approach makes us the leading supplier of cutting-edge financial solutions. We don’t use the term ‘digital transformation’ lightly; we’re grounded, and our approaches and solutions are tangible, innovative and highly-specialized.”
