Our success stories

Pilot Project with BMW

Introduction/The Case:

The BMW Group was interested in creating new IT business in Tunisia. During a Tech216-led discovery tour in Tunis, BMW was able to get an overview of the local supplier market and to quickly establish contact with potential Tunisian IT suppliers. Exceeding initial expectations from BMW, many IT companies in Tunisia already had established supplier relationships with other European groups the language barrier was smaller than expected and the high standards for cooperation, for example on data security, were already met in advance by some suppliers.

„The increasing number of IT companies (to over 2000 today) shows how dynamic the Tunisian market is.“

Dr. Andreas Bootz, BMW Group

Results/Solutions:

Since the beginning of the venture in early 2020, BMW has successfully completed

  • several IT projects with Tunisian partners (Think-ITWEVIOO) and
  • has been able to implement digital products for customers as well as internal business processes.

 

Skill requirements ranged from artificial intelligence, data science and data analytics to app development, cloud computing and cloud services.

„Regarding our commitment in Tunisia, we see a successful and satisfying partnership for both sides.“
