Meet our colleague Ralf Krebs, an expert for IoT and Smart Retail at T-Systems.


What I do

I work for the T-Systems IoT unit. Plus, I'm a member of a squad team called Smart Retail. We work on the digitization of retail trade and evaluate data with artificial intelligence. My personal task is to ensure the strategic partnership with the field service providers. With these services, such as maintenance or installation auf IoT devices, we make sure the best IoT service solutions reach our clients.

Why I do it

Almost everything surrounding the topic of digitization also has an impact on society – it’s a transformation that influences everything and everyone. And this is true especially for the Internet of Things that will help many people in their everyday life, in medicine, mobility, at their work place, just to name a few areas. IoT will be part of everything we do and has to be centered around the people who use it. That is why it’s a great responsibility and pleasure to create these technologies.

What pushes me

There are many training courses and offers at Telekom that help you familiarize yourself with new input and inspiration. In addition, it is always a possibility to change jobs every 
2-4 years. This helps to stay agile and hungry, reinvent yourself and in the end always stay the best employee you could possibly be.

How I shape the digital forefront

The digital world is changing at a fast pace. And I’m part of digital transformation, I can influence this future. Not many jobs can offer such a progressive, interesting and impactful field of work. I’m proud that we accept this challenge and do our best every day to keep up with new trends and make them accessible to our clients.
