T-Systems is strategically repositioning itself with cloud services. With “Cloud First”, the company will focus on cloud computing in the future – from private cloud to public cloud to hybrid cloud. To this end, T-Systems has deepened its partnerships with Amazon Web Services AWS and Microsoft. In addition, the Telekom subsidiary is increasingly training cloud experts and expanding its Open Telekom Cloud. In total, investments sum-up to a three-digit million euro amount in the expansion of cloud services.
Everything is becoming cloud. The trick is no longer to operate data centers, but to map work processes intelligently in highly automated infrastructures, which we call cloud computing. We are consistently aligning our company to this.
For example, T-Systems has expanded its strategic cooperation with Microsoft and AWS in recent months. Customers now receive a cloud solution based on Microsoft Azure from a single source with a single invoice. Customers also now benefit from faster migration to the cloud on AWS infrastructure. The range of services also includes the Google Cloud. T-Systems can thus manage multi-cloud landscapes for customers. For all cloud solutions, the IT service provider also offers data security. For customers with the highest compliance and data protection requirements, T-Systems is also expanding the capacities of its own public cloud, the Open Telekom Cloud.
More than 3,000 cloud architects and experts work for T-Systems. The IT service provider plans to equip 5,000 additional employees with deep cloud capabilities.
