Paessler has acquired German company qbilon. In the process, it aims to expand its software suite with a solution that collects, analyzes and optimizes hybrid IT environments.
Four former computer science students founded qbilon in Augsburg in 2019. The company does not have to move to Paessler’s headquarters in Nuremberg. The acquired company provides IT automation services to BMW and companies in the facilities and manufacturing industries, among others.
Paessler’s offering will now be able to do more with the systems it monitors for customers. For example, it processes data sets within the IT environment to arrive at insights about the best options for management and cost management and security policies. qbilon’s services already integrate with Paessler’s PRTG platform and third-party services such as AWS and Azure.
According to qbilon’s CEO Melanie Langermeier, the acquisition of its business is a logical step. “We are looking forward to providing our joint customers with comprehensive knowledge about their IT landscapes to help drive efficiencies and save resources.”
It is Paessler’s first acquisition. CEO Helmut Binder sees it as an exciting milestone. “We are passionate about giving customers the visibility they need of their IT landscapes to optimize resources, and qbilon is a natural fit with both our culture and what we are aiming to achieve. Both companies will benefit from mutual synergies in development & technology, sales and marketing as well as in operational areas.”
