DextraData – Top Innovator 2018

Innovation leader in the sector of German small and medium-sized businesses

DextraData awarded Top Innovator 2018

Those who work in the IT industry regularly witness new developments. Innovation is a central component of the IT world. Therefore it is not surprising that in the TOP 100 Innovation Award, IT development companies accounted for the largest group of participants with just under 14 percent. We are all the more pleased that DextraData's innovation rating is way above average in direct comparison and exceeds all our expectations.


We say "Thank you" for the excellent rating of "A+".

The TOP 100 Innovation Award

Since 25 years in the name of innovation

For the 25th time, compamedia’s competition takes place and awards the TOP innovators of German small and medium-sized businesses. Like in the past years, the companies compete in three different size classes and face the extensive innovation analysis under the scientific direction of Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke from Vienna University of Economics and Business.

Five areas were subject of evaluation:

  • Innovative processes and organization
  • Innovation climate
  • Innovation-promoting top management
  • External orientation/ Open Innovation
  • Innovation success

The prize is awarded to the 100 companies per category with the highest innovation index and are then allowed to call themselves "Top Innovator".

This year's award winners were honored by the science journalist and mentor of the TOP 100 Award Ranga Yogeshwar.

DextraData – TOP 100

Dextradata hits the ground running

From zero to the top 10

As one of the top 100 rookies, DextraData has proven to be a model student with an overall rating of "A +", the best possible placement for innovation management. In two rating categories, we immediately managed to take up leading positions.


Courage, trust and the freedom to break new ground

With an "A +" rating in the area of "Innovation-promoting Top Management", we even made it into the Top 10 of this year's award in this category.

Motivation is a motor of new ideas

With the top grade "A +" we were also certified for an excellent innovation climate, which also ensured us a Top 10 ranking.

Without structure even the best ideas fall by the wayside

In the category "Innovative Processes and Organization" we were also rated "A +". We are very happy about the above-average performance.

Courage to take risks, have ideas and do the right things

To give the core business a new direction means taking a risk. To develop something new, without neglecting the old, costs strength and works best when everyone is convinced that they are doing the right thing - when the energy and the commitment for change are present in the whole team.


The "TOP 100 Innovation Award" is proof of the success of past decisions to which the whole DextraData team and many of our clients have made a valuable contribution.

The excellent overall result and our positive innovation result confirmed our potential for future innovation.
