How it all started

»From Leipzig to the world.«

The Softline Group started in spring 2010 with 6 employees at the main location Leipzig. There was a lot to do: preparing the onboarding of the future employees, ordering the hardware, setting up the office space, commissioning of service providers … The to-do list of our start-up company was extensive and challenging. An incredibly exciting and fascinating time, which we were able to celebrate properly with an office opening in June 2010 with approx. 45 employees.

Development of the House of SAM® to the House of ITAM®

»From the House of SAM® to the House of ITAM®«

Back in the day, we introduced the House of SAM®: our tried and tested approach, based on the ISO/IEC 19770-1:2012 standard for SAM. Translating the numerous pages and pages of the ISO standard to a model that organisations could actually follow whilst taking their steps to increase their SAM maturity level, was the birth of the »Softline’s House of«, our registered trademark of the visualisation of IT maturity models.

With the update of the »old« SAM ISO standard to the ISO/IEC 19770-1:2017 standard for ITAM, we welcomed the Softline’s House of ITAM®.

Security as a quality criterion

»We practice information security«

Security has been one of the top issues in the IT market for years. As IT infrastructures have become more and more complex, all areas of life have become increasingly digitalized, the number of cybercrimes has risen and, as a result, laws have become stricter, we have continually sharpened our portfolio and adapted it to meet these new challenges.
