These values have defined the way we work since our foundation in 1994.
As scientifically educated practitioners, we know exactly what we are doing. Research is part of our DNA. We clearly see how close solution-oriented thinking and superior solutions are to one another not only in terms of language. This understanding has made us the inventors of Reverse Business Engineering and SAP application experts. We therefore offer our customers outstanding performance in testing logic and complex rules & regulations.
No one wants to stop halfway. Therefore, we realize far more for our customers than just pure analyses. With our sophisticated testing logic, we evaluate their results. From this, our business IT specialists derive goals and recommendations for action in customer workshops. In this way, IBIS Prof. Thome AG links the relevant areas of technology, business and science for the benefit of its customers.
The IT world: always on the move. To always be state of the art in one’s area of expertise requires constant curiosity and investment. But our role still goes beyond that. For more than 25 years, we at IBIS Prof. Thome AG have been adept at being pioneers. We therefore know exactly what it means to place your own ideas on the market and thus create genuine innovations. We do not forget our daily business; we have learned to improve it.
We analyze highly confidential data systems for our customers and partners. We ensure that information remains only in our reliable hands. On the one hand, by extracting data in a targeted and economical manner and, on the other hand, through our information security management system (ISMS). This is aligned to the international safety standards and is continuously checked and certified annually according to the requirements of ISO 27001. This is how we make security as safe as possible.
Since our start as a think tank, we have built up expertise, both within the company and within the framework of our large partner network. We are therefore well established in the market. Well acquainted with SAP systems, experienced through analyses with more than 1500 international customers, strengthened by many best practice cases and supported by our Reverse Business Engineering Tool. No surprise that IBIS Prof. Thome AG is the market leader in its field.
The goal is always to enhance the process and system efficiency of our customers. Teams with cross-generational experience carry out comprehensive IBIS RBE Plus Usage Analyses at short notice – without any investment of time for our customers. We are fast due to short decision paths, constant updating of our expertise in current developments of information processing and detailed knowledge of the latest SAP innovations.
Working for IBIS America right out of college was intimidating at first, especially since I didn’t have any prior exposure to the SAP world; however, after the entire European team (IBIS Prof. Thome, the parent company) welcomed me with open arms, I instantly felt like a part of their family. On top of the collaborative company culture, the decentralized structure has allowed me to comfortably and freely voice my opinions with the assurance of being heard. In addition, the sheer flexibility relieves unnecessary stress making IBIS America a paramount company.
