Looking back, 2023 was a year of achievements for SodiusWillert. And those achievements follow a plan: to bring more value to our customers! So, what has SodiusWillert been up to, you ask? Well, let’s jump right (back) into it!

We’ve expanded and welcomed 321Gang

Last summer, we had the pleasure of welcoming the 321Gang team the SodiusWillert family. The integration of 321Gang marks a milestone on our path.

With the joint expertise, know-how, and market position of 321Gang and SodiusWillert, the new SodiusWillert Group will generate increased value for you, our customers. We bring together a diverse portfolio of offerings, including market-leading engineering tools from IBM and other selected vendors such as Atlassian, GitLab, pure:systems, and more, along with add-ons, key technologies, and services.

Together, we are enhancing the engineering and development of large, mission-critical systems and software, bolstering customer support in both Europe and the US. Curious to know more about 321Gang? Here’s where you can find them:

We’ve met you in person

Our experts are around for you at events and conferences, to listen to you and learn about your challenges, and to share experiences and feedback we get from customers. We are convinced that the challenges of engineering complex systems and software require joining forces and leveraging communities of experts. This is the guiding principle behind our presence at events. We share our expertise as speakers and meet you at events in the US as well as in Europe, e.g. at GDPIS in Phoenix, Arizona, at REConf and MESCONF in Munich, Germany, or the ESE conference in Sindelfingen, Germany.

Our annual Automotive Day was a success

Driven by the idea of establishing a base for community building we hosted the Automotive Day 2023 in Munich, Germany, with a renowned speaker panel of customer speakers and industry experts and attended by even more customers and industry experts. Those two days were packed with insights, discussions, inspiration, and fun. 

See what you missed!

Follow-up community activities were already agreed on-site to continue the exchange among the experts until we meet again: at Automotive Day 2024 on Nov 5/6 in the IBM Watson Center in Munich, Germany.

Staying on top of IBM ELM expertise

As an IBM partner, we are proud to have achieved IBM Platinum Partner status in 2023. With decades of expertise in engineering complex systems and software, we maximize the benefit for our customers from their investment in IBM tools.

As an IBM partner SodiusWillert is focusing on delivering the complete engineering solution: tools, training, customization and configuration, coaching, and ongoing support. Since we are developers ourselves, we know exactly the capabilities and behavior of tools in real projects. We have developed proven add-ons and extensions that enable customers to use tools, methods, and processes in a way that meets their needs.

Furthermore, our CTO Walter van der Heiden has been awarded the IBM Champion – 3 Year Milestone issued by IBM – very well deserved, Walter! 

So, what’s left?

Thank you all for your trust in SodiusWillert, for your support, and your loyalty. We take pride in developing long-lasting relationships with you, our customers. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to provide you with the tools and help provide you with the tools and help that you need to turn your engineering projects into successful outcomes.  

Happy holidays, stay safe and healthy, and all the best for 2024!
