We are increasingly more eager to use smart solutions and smartphones are with us almost always and everywhere. Thanks to this, the Internet of Things is slowly becoming a part of our reality. One of the fastest developing trends related to the Internet of Things is smart home. Solutions dedicated to intelligent homes increase the comfort of their residents, which makes our lives easier and more pleasant. You can find more information about the popularity of this technology and about new products in the ABC Data offer in the Manager magazine, which we kindly invite you to read.
Software as a Service is currently the most popular model of cloud computing. It means offering software which a client can use without storing it on their disc; in fact, the software is with a supplier. SaaS offers services such as, among others, security services, which allow to ensure the maximum level of protection against threats for an individual or for a company – without high costs of construction and maintenance of internal infrastructure. Software as a Service has a lot of advantages and is definitely worth paying attention to. Why? You can find more information in a new article by Damian Przygodzki, ABC Data Value+ expert. The article has just been published in the WPROST weekly.

ABC Data, the leader in the IT equipment distribution in the CEE region, has been contributing to the continuous development of the Polish IT market for over 25 years. As part of the activities carried out, the Company supports the initiatives aiming to strengthen and to promote Polish companies. ABC Data has recently become a Strategic Partner of the “EAGLES OF WPROST” Mazovian Gala – the event at which the WPROST magazine recognised the outstanding enterprises in the region and in the whole country.
The winners of the Mazovian edition of the “EAGLES OF WPROST” ranking were announced at the Gala in Warsaw on Wednesday, June 8th. Among the recognised companies there are: PGE, GPW, 3M Poland or DPD Poland. Jacek Pochłopień, Deputy Editor in Chief of the WPROST weekly, chaired the gala. Granting the statuettes to the award winners was the key point of the event. This part of the gala was initiated by Ilona Weiss, President of the Management Board of ABC Data S.A. – a Strategic Partner of the Gala. In her speech to the audience Ilona Weiss stressed the fact how important for the development of Poland, both local and global, the recognised companies, persons and all those who support them are.
– These Eagles are the leaders who develop dynamically, who constantly search unobvious solutions and to whom innovativeness is not an empty slogan, but a natural way of day-to-day performance – explains Ilona Weiss, President of the Management Board and CEO of ABC Data – Without such companies, our economy would not have achieved what it has already achieved. We are not chasing after Western Europe anymore. We are catching up with it. I believe that, when the situation so requires, the entrepreneurs should be supported in order to develop not only in Poland, but also abroad. With the state support we can do much more – adds the President of the Management Board of ABC Data.
The “EAGLES OF WPROST” are prestigious awards granted to the outstanding companies with impressive results and operating in Poland. It is important that these are not the largest, the best-known enterprises, but also those which do not appear on the press covers. The award winners are elected in two groups: among companies with the highest average net profits and among those with the highest financial results growth. The “EAGLES OF WPROST” can also be granted to entrepreneurs, local government officials or personalities with especially meritorious contributions to their regions. At the Gala in Warsaw the awards were granted to the companies and persons from the Mazovian region. Earlier, the “EAGLES OF WPROST” were granted in Pomerania and in the West-Pomeranian Voivodeship.
Ilona Weiss, President of the Management Board of ABC Data – the leader in IT distribution in Poland and in the CEE region, was awarded “IT Market Personality of the Year 2015” by the opinion-making CRN magazine. This award constitutes an acknowledgement of the achievements of Ilona Weiss so far for the development of ABC Data which is one of the most important companies on the Polish IT distribution market and for over 25 years has been successfully determining the directions of its development.
The award ceremony was held on June 7th at the CRN Magazine “Business Tech Trends 2016” Gala. Among many distinguished guests who attended the event organised in the Intercontinental hotel, Warsaw, there were representatives of the most important IT companies operating in Poland, i.e. Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo and ABC Data. The meeting aimed to award two prizes for “IT Market Personality of the Year 2015”. The editors of the CRN magazine elected Ilona Weiss, President of the Management Board of ABC Data.
– CRN Poland has been the genuinely opinion-making voice of the B2B sector in the Polish IT industry for years. It is a great honour to be recognised by such a distinguished magazine. Although I received the award for my personal acievements, I would like to dedicate it to the whole team of ABC Data – said Ilona Weiss – For over 25 years we have been the leading equipment, software and computer accessories distributor in our country. Among all countries in the CEE region it is the Polish IT market that resembles the most the market in Western Europe. This is, among others, thanks to ABC Data which, over all the years of its acivity, has been playing a significant role in the process of developing this market – added the President of the
Management Board of ABC Data.
CRN is the leading magazine on the Polish market, dedicated to the distribution industry of the IT equipment in the broad sense. The magazine analyses the market trends on an ongoing basis and provides its readers with always the most recent, valuable information and adequate commentaries related to the IT industry. The award from the editors of this magazine is another recognition for Ilona Weiss this year. In February, the President of the Management Board of ABC Data was awarded “Man of the Year 2015” by the publishers of the Mobility magazine at the “Mobility Trends 2015” Gala.
Pervasive opinions persist that the IT equipment distribution market is a difficult one; however, it does not implicate at all that being successful on this market is not possible. ABC Data sets the best example in this field, as Ilona Weiss, President of the Management Board of ABC Data proves in the interview for the “The Point of View”, a part of the Harvard Business Review monthly. The President of the Management Board of ABC Data discusses, among others, opportunities for business growth in Central and Eastern Europe, current M&A-related plans of the Company and why, unlikely to most distributors, ABC Data decides to lease rather than build the warehouses.
