Rosenberger OSI realizes modern data center for DVAG at new location
The Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG (DVAG) has been on a course of growth for many years now. As a result of this, it has 6 properties throughout Frankfurt. The new company headquarters offers enough room for all workspaces. For the planning and realization of the new data center, DVAG is relying on the expertise of the cabling specialist Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), which is based in Augsburg.
Since it was founded in 1975, the Deutsche Vermögensberatung (DVAG) has been at home in the financial metropolis Frankfurt. The largest independent financial advising group in Germany offers comprehensive, multi-class, all-round financial advice for a large section of the population, in line with its corporate motto “Wealth Accumulation for Everyone!”. With more than 3,400 administrative and branch offices, the DVAG supports and advises around 6 million customers in relation to finances, pension provision and insurance. Since it was founded, the company has been on a course of growth. Due to the ongoing development, the company has had to lease additional external office space over the years, in addition to its headquarters.
These were spread across Frankfurt. This spatial separation proved to be inefficient and made it difficult for the staff to exchange information with one another. As a result of this, the decision was made to move away from decentralized locations and set up a new corporate headquarters, which would offer enough space for all employees of the group. In spring 2015, the DVAG therefore purchased an office complex in the Gutleutviertel in Frankfurt. However, in order to fulfill the requirements of the finance company, significant restructuring measures were needed. One huge activity within the construction project was the new data center, in which the entire IT department of the DVAG was to be housed.
