Engineering: leader della Digital Transformation

We Are Engineering

Our Story

40 years ago, we started to imagine a new future by working with data.


With approximately 12,000 professionals in 40+ locations (in Italy, Belgium, Germany, Norway, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and the USA), the Engineering Group designs, develops, and manages innovative solutions for the areas of business where digitalisation generates major change, such as digital finance, smart government & e-health, augmented cities, digital industry, smart energy & utilities, and digital media & communication.

In the course of 2020, Engineering has supported its partners in the continuation and protection of their businesses and key processes, assisting in the design of their 'new normal' and the mapping of new digital ecosystems.

With its activities and projects, the Group is helping to modernise the world in which we live and work, combining specialist skills in the final frontier of technologies, technological infrastructures organised in a unique hybrid multi-cloud model, and the ability to interpret new business models. With important investments in R&D, Engineering plays a leading role in research, coordinating national and international projects with a team of 450 researchers and data scientists and a network of scientific and academic partners throughout Europe. One of the Group's strategic assets is the expertise of its employees, whose development is promoted by a dedicated multi-disciplinary training school that provided more than 19,000 training days over the last year.

Our Story

Just under four decades of history are not many for a company, but they are an eon for a company that works in Information Technology. Engineering was founded in 1980 as a software house ready to take on Olivetti’s challenge of being a completely Italian IT company at heart, but with multinational arms and legs. A journey that began when computerization was moving its first steps in Italy and that now recognizes us as a global player in Digital Transformation with 65 offices and 12,000 employees around the world.




The current Chairman Michele Cinaglia founded Engineering Ingegneria Informatica in Padua. The company was created thanks to a management buy-out operation from Cerved, the IT company of the Italian Chamber of Commerce network, now InfoCamere.


Alongside the shareholder managers, industrial and financial partners with minority shareholdings, such as IBM, Benetton, Italcementi Group and IMI, have succeeded each other. In 2000, the latter accompanies our listing on the Stock Exchange.




Thanks to the arrival of new capital from the market, the growth of the activities is funded both internally and through acquisitions.


In 2013, One Equity Partners, an American fund that manages more than 10 billion dollars in investments on behalf of JP Morgan worldwide, becomes part of our shareholding group. In 2015 JP Morgan sells its holding in Engineering to OEP Secondary Fund. Il 2016 NB Renaissance funds (born from the partnership between Neuberger Berman and Intesa Sanpaolo) and Apax VIII acquire 44.3% of Engineering's share capital. The operation involves the launch of a mandatory takeover bid by the two funds which ends with delisting. The operation maintains the continuity of the managerial structure led by founder and Chairman Michele Cinaglia, who remains a 12.2% shareholder of Engineering.
