SAP solutions with T-Systems in BT’s cloud ecosystem
BT and T-Systems today announced a collaboration agreement focused on the delivery of SAP cloud services. The agreement will enable BT to connect its customers to T-Systems data centers hosting SAP cloud capability, providing access to Dynamic Services for SAP® solutions.  BT customers will benefit from access to SAP business applications and operational services for SAP HANA “as a service”.
BT customers can access the SAP services hosted in T-Systems datacentres via BT Cloud Connect. Cloud Connect builds on BT’s coverage to more than 198 countries and territories with specific points of presence located at major internet peering and business hubs around the world. This also leverages Connect Applications, BT's managed services portfolio, for SAP customers. Cloud Connect already provides high performance and secure network connectivity to cloud services from leading providers such as Microsoft, Amazon, or Salesforce as well as from BT’s own Cloud Compute offering.

New service – experienced hosting

BT Compute for SAP is a platform-as-a-service offering that takes full advantage of the T-Systems heritage as one of SAP’s largest platform and hosting partners. It will be delivered as a managed service, through a single service desk and supported by highly qualified technical desks that proactively manage and assure quality of service.
Luis Alvarez, Global Services CEO, BT, said: “The strength of BT’s ‚Cloud of Clouds’ portfolio strategy relies largely on the combination between the quality and expertise of our ecosystem of partners and our own cloud services integration capabilities. T-Systems are one of the world’s leading experts when it comes to SAP in the cloud, and we are very happy to combine their SAP capabilities with our own global network and cloud services integration strengths into a unique offering for the benefit of our customers."
Reinhard Clemens, CEO T-Systems said: “This collaboration between BT and T-Systems will deliver a high quality end-to-end service to customers, leveraging both organisations’ strengths in IT and networking. As the world’s largest service provider of SAP solutions, T-Systems will bring the expertise of our dynamic, cloud-based SAP services to BT’s extensive customer base in the UK and Continental Europe.”
BT Compute for SAP solutions will be available to customers from early 2017 in the UK and Continental Europe.
