Cloud Only Strategy With Apple Devices


Cloud Only Strategy With Apple Devices

With MacBook and iPhone, new employees of the car sharing provider SHARE NOW are ready to work from day one.

Modern Cloud-Based Infrastructure

After the merger of car2go and Drive Now, the newly created carsharing service provider needed a flexible, scalable IT infrastructure at locations throughout Europe. The guiding principle was the cloud-only strategy: the company did not want to buy solutions, but to follow the principle of its own business model, using them as a consumer and renting resources flexibly. To attract the best specialists, SHARE NOW also wanted to provide a modern IT workstation.



We created the complete system landscape together with Computacenter, Apple and Apple Financial Services - from hardware and software to services and implementation.

Erik Bak-Mikkelsen, Head of Cloud Operations, SHARE NOW


The carsharing provider had to integrate a standard, straightforward and high-performance software and hardware solution for its employees at locations throughout Europe. SHARE NOW has equipped its employees in seven countries - including Italy, Austria, France, Spain and the Netherlands - with the new solution.

SHARE NOW did not want to own any solutions, but only use them and thus follow the actual business model. With its car sharing philosophy, the company also relies on the fact that no customer owns a car anymore, but rather people reserve, unlock, drive and park a car directly via app.


SHARE NOW is independent of hardware and software and can assemble and equip teams very quickly. From their first day at work, new employees have access to a secure and immediately operational IT infrastructure, which is particularly attractive thanks to modern Apple equipment. Its modular structure means that the solution can be changed at any time, scaled and extended and adapted to new requirements. The leasing model ensures that costs and technological development are always in harmony.
