Toulouse likes to regard herself as the French capital of rugby. And quite rightly, the legendary Toulouse team, Stade Toulousian, has brought the city worldwide fame in the world of sports, through their great achievement during this year’s European Championship.
Despite the ongoing COVID-pandemics, SII Deutschland has succeeded in closing a series of new framework agreements over the past two quarters and stabilizing her order intake. By the end of the first half of the ongoing fiscal year, a positive overall operative result was achieved, along with a promising prospection on an enlarged field of activities.

July 31st is Sysadmin day. Since July 28th, 2000, this day is celebrated on the last Friday of July. It was invented by the system administrator Ted Kekatos. He was inspired by an advert posted by Hewlett-Packard, thanking a system administrator for installing a printer, with flowers and a fruit basket.
More than ever before, in the “Corona-year” 2020, this day is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to those people who usually perform their duties in the background and most times, receive little notice. However, their contribution is key in overcoming the crisis. Thanks to them, we remain fully operational, connected over long distances and able to work together across all our German locations, despite the ongoing physical restrictions.
Our system administrators manage our computer and communication systems through a complex system of access rights. They plan, install, configure and maintain the digital infrastructure of our company and link us to our Clients and Partners, whilst facing the ever increasing demands on data volume, data protection and information security.
They execute their tasks with professionalism and with the right dose of humor: even when a user rants and raves, after entering a wrong password for the third time…😊 (more…)
The Corona crisis has heavily impacted public transportation as we knew it until now. Many people avoid buses and trams for fear of an infection. But how can individual transportation be reconciled with the mandate to create carless and environmentally friendly inner cities?

Over the past years, how often has the transporter A400M been under the crossfire from the public eye? Too complex, too expensive and who needs a new military aircraft today anyways…?
In times of Corona, this transport plane shows its true colors! As a matter of fact, the A400M is currently playing a key role in countless humanitarian missions targeting the transfer of COVID-19 patients, worldwide.
Ever since 2001, the “Girl’s Day” has become one of the biggest professional orientation events for young women in Germany. The aim is to encourage girls to consider professions inappropriately viewed as a being part of a typical “male domain”. Particularly, practical insights into technical jobs are meant to help girls to abolish any reservations about said type of professions. In addition, this provides the opportunity to establish useful contacts with the industry, when searching for an apprenticeship or a practical training during university studies.
As in the past, this year, SII in Germany opens her doors for young female candidates, interested in learning about the development process of aircrafts.
Since 2012, the SII Group evaluates its Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) practices through the Ecovadis standards.

- Maintained an “Advanced” CSR performance
- Obtained GOLD Medal status recognition
TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) aims at establishing a company wide recognition of information security assessments for the automotive industry, based on a common verification and exchange mechanism.
Consequently, a wide number of German car manufacturers and suppliers of automotive components expect from their business partners to be accordingly certified. The basis for this certification is a catalogue created by the members of the German Automobile Association (Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V. in short: VDA) which was derived from the international industrial norm ISO/IEC 27001 and reflects the specific requirements of the automotive sector. (more…)
