Lünendonk list: T-Systems is number one for IT services

T-Systems has retained its top position in the Lünendonk list of leading IT service companies in Germany. As in the previous year, the Telekom subsidiary placed just ahead of Atos. In its ranking, market research company Lünendonk & Hossenfelder compares IT service providers that generate more than 50 per cent of their revenue from IT outsourcing, hosting, managed services, and other data center services.

High demand for digital experts

The ranking is part of a study titled "The Market for IT Services in Germany". Sales in the market as a whole also increased significantly in the second year of the coronavirus. 2021 saw average growth of just over 13 percent. Mario Zillmann, partner at Lünendonk, says the driver behind this is the pressure for digitalization and transformation in companies: "They require external expertise – often due to a lack of in-house experience – and the demand for IT experts is higher than ever before." Demand was particularly high for services related to the cloud, IT modernisation, and data analytics.

Ranked in the Top 5 for IT consulting and system integration

While the Telekom subsidiary is in the lead for IT services, it holds fourth place in the Lünendonk list of leading IT consultants and system integrators in Germany – again, just like last year. Accenture, Capgemini, and IBM came out on top. This market also saw strong overall growth: The 25 leading IT consultancies in Germany grew by an average of 14.5 percent in 2021, bringing their total revenue in Germany to EUR 15.8 billion.* By comparison: in 2020, growth was just under 5 percent.
