About Rheinmetall IT Solutions

Rheinmetall IT Solutions GmbH, headquartered in Düsseldorf, acts as an internal IT service provider and consulting company for the Rheinmetall Group worldwide.

The company was founded in 2020 with the aim of offering IT business, which was previously sourced in full outsourcing, fully within the company again and to make all IT core competences available to Rheinmetall worldwide.

In the medium term, Rheinmetall IT Solutions will ensure the operation of all local and wide area networks, the company's own data centres, all digital workplaces and the necessary infrastructures at the company locations. The colleagues on site are supported by a 24/7 Security and Network Operations Centre to ensure the highest possible system availability for our business at all times.

In addition, we are investing heavily in the development of our "Application Management (AMS)" and "IT Security" divisions. The focus of our work in AMS includes developments for SAP S/4HANA and Siemens PLM. Our own IT Project Management Office (PMO), in cooperation with the Enterprise Demand Management division, ensures that business requirements are recorded in a structured manner and that projects are successfully managed throughout all phases at all times.

IT is also a sparring partner for business in the development of new, innovative business fields and operates the necessary infrastructures and collaboration tools on behalf of Rheinmetall subsidiaries in Germany and abroad.
