STACKIT – Origin and Vision.

The Schwarz Group covers the entire value chain of the food trade like no other trading company, from production to sales to materials management. Digitalization and its pressure to change are noticeable in all business areas. To continue to successfully serve rising customer needs, new digital business models must be iterated even faster – and this while the data and system infrastructure becomes increasingly complex. As the number 1 in the European retail business, the Schwarz Group knows that those who do not digitize will lose market share in the long term.

In this challenging market environment, the cloud serves as an enabler of digitalization. That’s why the Schwarz Group is taking an active approach to transformation. STACKIT was founded in 2018 to drive the digital transformation within the Schwarz Group with its own high-performance cloud and colocation infrastructure.

The innovative unit focuses on finding solutions for the operation of its own retail divisions Lidl and Kaufland as well as the companies of the Schwarz Group. With STACKIT and the establishment of its own cloud infrastructure, the company is creating the basis for keeping fit for the future and independent.

STACKIT services are currently offered to the Group’s internal customers and are continuously optimised according to their requirements. In the future, it is also planned to offer the services on the external market.

Particularly during the CORONA period, the number of business-critical dependencies on external cloud providers has increased. We would like to counteract the strong growth of external cloud revenues with our own strategic project STACKIT in order to realize savings potentials in the future.
