Illutas GmbH was founded in 2016 to assist companies in their IT challenges. Illutas delivers tailored IT strategy and management services, complete with approaches, methods and tools.
Our approach is not focused on the delivery of technology solutions, but on the solving of business problems through the right use of information. Efficiency, simplicity and transparency are key in the delivery of our services as well as the solutions we propose.
Information Technology changes a lot, and these changes often offer opportunities. The underlying business principles, however, are mostly not affected. This makes it difficult sometimes, to recognise the right opportunities and to take advantage of these in an economically sensible way.
Illutas gets you on the right track

The Illutas principles and approach are derived from these experiences, industries and roles.
This experience shows that simple solutions, that have been aligned with people, their motivations and their processes, and that are delivered in clear, value-adding steps, often work best. And well defined, focused information management plays a key role in these solutions.
This is supported by a clean IT investment strategy, ensuring that the right money is spend on the right investments, and efficient and effective procurement, development and operation of IT.
Illutas addresses these issues in a structured approach, so that our customers can find rapid, structural and long term solutions for these challenges.
