Hilversum, the Netherlands, 4 October 2021 – After crossing the border to Belgium in 2019, Xpirit now celebrates the start of Xpirit Germany.

Xpirit is a fast-growing Microsoft Consultancy boutique and proudly part of Xebia. Xebia is a house of brands that all complement each other in the field of Digital Transformation. Founded in 2014, Xpirit now consists out of over 50 experts today. Their expertise is amplified by the fact that 18 Microsoft MVPs and 3 Microsoft Regional Directors are now part of the Xpirit journey. Besides being a Microsoft Gold Partner, Xpirit is also the first GitHub Verified Partner in Europe.

They help their clients by offering services around Microsoft Azure, DevOps, and GitHub. Following Xpirit’s Customer intimacy principle they not always do exactly what the customer asks, but they really help by doing what the customer actually needs.

Xpirit hires the top talent in the market, that are independent thinkers and the best in their profession. They’re true advocates of DevOps and they live their principles. Meaning ship often, fail fast and continuous learning are the ingredients of all engagements.  Xpirit started a new Managed Services offering earlier this year, that promises an uptime of 99.95% and, at the same time, enables you to release multiple times per day. This is what they call Managed Services done right, providing stability and agility at the same time!

Over the past seven years, Xpirit gained a lot of expertise in moving companies to the cloud. This also resulted in a proposition of Cloud-Native Software Development. This is where Xpirit delivers a team of software engineers that help companies move their existing codebase to cloud-native or build new greenfield solutions born in the cloud.

Xpirit’s mission is to be the authority in Azure Cloud and DevOps. Based on a foundation of core principles, they are on a journey towards thought-leadership. Sharing Knowledge is one of these core principles. This is amplified with the weekly mandatory knowledge sharing sessions and bi-monthly innovation days. To keep being a front-runner, Xpirit supports their people in every way necessary to grow as a person, as a professional, and constantly learn and innovate, ultimately resulting in extra value for their clients.

Michael Kaufmann will head Xpirit Germany as CEO. In the near future, Thomas Tomow will join the Xpirit Germany leadership team as the CTO. He will be responsible for the technological strategy. A CCO for the commercial part has also be found and will join shortly after that.

Michael Kaufmann, CEO of Xpirit Germany: "I know Marcel and his Team for many years, and I believe it is a perfect fit. We share the same principles and the same agile mindset: people first, quality without compromise, customer intimacy, and knowledge sharing. In the beginning, we will focus on helping our customers to move to the Azure Cloud, adopt DevOps practices, and accelerate their software delivery. But with the growing team and customer base, we’ll also bring other products and managed services from Xpirit and Xebia to our customers. Many companies in Germany are on the brink of adopting Cloud and DevOps – and a team of international experts that already had helped other customers to succeed in their transformation will be of great value to them."

Marcel de Vries, CTO of Xpirit: “With the start of Xpirit Germany, we are strengthening our ambition to be the thought leader on Azure Cloud and DevOps. With the team headed by Michael, I am confident we can expand our thought-leadership and share our experience in cloud transformations also to the German region. Leveraging our experience together with the strong leadership and skillset of the new team, customers will benefit from this in their cloud transformation, by doing it first time right”
