T-Systems continues to invest in the automotive industry, focusing on four areas: Vehicle software and connectivity, digital customer experiences, the digitization of the company, and secure cloud computing. To this end, the Telekom subsidiary plans to create around 600 jobs worldwide by 2023. Already, 4,000 experts are working on the digitization of the industry. T-Systems is recruiting around 200 new employees for the Wolfsburg site alone.
“Electromobility, autonomous driving, networking: in the future, the core competence of car manufacturers will be software,” says Christian Hort, responsible for the Automotive business area at T-Systems. “The challenge lies in managing the entire software lifecycle. In my opinion, this is even more complex than the pure electronics delivery cycle. No car manufacturer will manage to map the entire software supply chain on its own and also offer all services related to the car, the customer and production from its own resources.”
