SYSGO now AG (Public Limited Company)
The overall economic situation of the last two years has strengthened SYSGO against the trend. In particular, the use of Linux in the embedded market developed very positively.
Still self-financed, SYSGO is now faced with the task of strategically aligning itself for the future. "The change of name to SYSGO AG was the first milestone for us on our way to becoming the European market leader in the embedded software market", Jens Alsleben explains the step. "It opens up the possibility of integrating strategic partners into our company, who will accompany us closely with their international experience and know-how in the coming years."
