diva-e gains a place and continues strong growth / Revenue increased to 95 million euros in 2022 / Growth through integrated digital services from a single source / Office opened in North America

In the current Internet agency ranking of the Bundesverband Digitale Wirtschaft (BVDW), diva-e gains one place this year and climbs to 7th place. With 2022 sales of 94.78 million, diva-e continues to hold its own among Germany's leading digital agencies, recording growth of 9.8 percent despite the sale of its data center business in the fourth quarter. This result confirms the strategy of focusing on the high-growth core business in end-to-end e-commerce, digital consulting services and cloud platforms.

For this year, diva-e founder and CEO Tilman Au expects a further leap in growth to more than 100 million euros in revenue. "With the successful support of our customers on the global markets, new technology partners and our holistic strategy, we are ideally positioned for the future," says Au. This is also confirmed by the Lünendonk study on the market leaders in digital experience services, which positions diva-e in a league with the top international companies in the industry such as Deloitte, Accenture, IBM and PwC.

Global at the side of German world market leaders

Internationalization initiated: The opening of the U.S. office in Cincinnati, Ohio, enables diva-e to align the digital commerce platforms of its global clients even better with local user habits, their culture, logistics and best practices. In building and maintaining online platforms for the U.S. and other international markets, diva-e assists major German retailers and industrial companies. "This step will not be the only one to accompany companies on global markets," explains diva-e founder and CCO Sirko Schneppe. "We already offer our application management services in different time zones in a 24-hour service."

Successful with holistic customer projects

In the intense competitive environment, diva-e was not only able to expand its relationships with long-standing customers, but also win many new clients. With dmTECH, the IT subsidiary of the drugstore chain dm-drogerie markt, diva-e launched new projects after now more than ten years of cooperation. A new online store solution for ordering spare parts, accessories and software was created for photovoltaic manufacturer SMA Solar Technology AG, and a 360-degree portal was set up for a better customer experience. Similar projects were carried out for many customers, including European pet food market leader Fressnapf Group, sensor manufacturer Ifm and automotive supplier ZF Friedrichshafen AG. In the automotive sector, with customers such as Continental, Bentley and Mazda, diva-e has built up a strong footprint.

Companies demand holistic digital solutions

In recent years, the number of shopping and information channels has increased so much that the necessary technologies have become unmanageable. To reduce complexity, better align sales channels and technology, and enable a comprehensive brand experience, diva-e has developed a holistic digital strategy for different scenarios. With its omnichannel platform strategy, data management, hosting and other services, diva-e has the answer to the growing customer need for integrated solutions from a single source, from strategy and design to implementation and operation.

"Our holistic approach covers the entire digital value chain," explains CEO Au. "This is how we enable our customers to stay competitive and become digital champions in today's increasingly complex digital world."

Future challenges in sight

From supporting companies in the area of e-commerce and digital platforms, diva-e has expanded its offering to include integrated digital experience processes that, supported by artificial intelligence, allow completely new implementation concepts. "As a result, we now offer integrated business model, experience and technology consulting from a single source and ensure more online transactions for our customers," says CCO Sirko Schneppe.

As a leading company in the field of digital commerce, diva-e is a focal point for the developer community. At the end of April, diva-e hosted the "Time to perform" festival to great acclaim. Here, executives, digital marketing managers, experts and interested companies were able to discuss new trends, discover performance solutions and try out successful online marketing in practical workshops. And for September, diva-e, as official organizer and host, invites you to Europe's most important AEM developer conference adaptTo() in Berlin after a one-year break.
