iteratec – the success story
Klaus Eberhardt and Mark Goerke founded iteratec GmbH on July 1, 1996. One year later, the young company already had a staff of 16 IT specialists. With demand for its services consistently strong throughout its history, the company has an unbroken record of growth. Today, iteratec employs over 160 people at five locations.
iteratec stands for iterative software technologies. Our name is our philosophy. Our founders were convinced that the right way to go about software engineering was through a spiral model as proposed by Barry Boehm: through iterative and incremental development, with a key focus on risk analysis. Over the years, and over the course of many projects, iteratec has developed its own process model from this original approach.
Software engineering on the basis of object orientation is another contributor to success. Clean, tidy work is paramount, in both programming and project management. Many methods that are today standard practice were part of iteratec’s toolkit years ago – when others still viewed the techniques with suspicion.
Successful projects and good references are key to driving the growth of any company. Yet it’s equally important to make sure we recruit and retain the high quality staff who will keep the company on its growth trajectory. iteratec recruits staff through rigorous selection procedures. Anyone who wants to join the iteratec team must have a solid educational background, as well as the potential and drive to grow and develop with the company.
Years teach more than books.
