Convios was founded in 2006 by Dr. Oliver Gausmann – a well-regarded global IT-Management professional, respected speaker internationally and author of several high-level publications on improving business value through Information technology.
Convios is organized in three key main competence centers covering a wide variety of topics. These centers collaborate strongly and often topics overlap significantly. Our customers range from startups after seed financing stage up to large scale organizations acting globally.
Our Investment & Entrepreneurship center supports companies in building and establishing structures, processes and technologies that help to succeed. We are (technology) founders and entrepreneurs and know what matters – hands-on mentality, low-cost approaches and a view on extensibility. No technology for the sake of technology – no bells and whistles.
This center has also been invested in several successful startups with an exit volume of greater 3 million in the last 5 years. Latest successes include the purchase of Minerals Value Service GmbH – a company specialized in raw-material pricing – through McGrawHill Financial / S&P Global Platts (S&P Global acquires MVS).
Companies are now more than ever are faced with the pitfalls of technology. Legacy IT-systems and technologies are a heritage CIOs have to take care of while similarly key organizational stakeholders & customers quite rightly demand state of the art products and services. Digital Transformation is a continuous effort that requires sensitivity and instinct for the needs of all stakeholders. IT-Managers in bigger organizations face significant challenges by adjusting their technology landscape to the agile requirements of a modern IT-organization.
We help companies to navigate through these challenges. We know the IT-landscape and what companies drive today. We know that despite all the differences in products, services and markets the technology challenges are very similar.
We have developed proprietary tools, technologies, process models and certified trainings to help your organization getting through the digital jungle. With our partner Eberhardt & Partner Consulting in Switzerland we have successfully introduced a proprietary WAGILE framework in many large-scale organizations with a significantly positive impact on flexibility, agility and IT-generated customer value. WAGILE is a project delivery framework combining waterfall and agile principles of IT-product delivery and has shown to be highly successful in helping companies to succeed in the global market place.

Even experts in their fields are unable to perceive the possibilities of change driven by technology that has become a commodity for everyone with a computer. Companies started by some students not long ago have become billion dollar businesses disrupting whole industries – unthinkable just a decade ago. Technologies such as blockchain and bitcoin as well as recent innovations in machine learning or the big data trend are rattling not only the financial industry and are promising significant, yet unknown potentials.
Customer demand has changed significantly and social media has a tremendous impact how customers interact among each other or with companies. Instant Messengers have gained importance as a direct line of communication with the customers and mobility is a prerequisite in every aspect.
We are innovators. We love solving problems, providing efficiency, being disruptive and gaining revenue through technology. We love to make your company being on the forefront of innovation. Not by telling you what & where to innovate but by helping you to set-up the organizational structures that support innovation and by conducting the research needed to transform your business in the right direction.
This center has e.g. established Europe’s longest-lasting and biggest market study on communication in the digital age and is still executing it. Since 2009 this representative study has summarized the results of more than 1000 yearly interviews with internet users on their communication behavior. The success of this study is shown through numerous mentions in the worldwide press.
