ISG Provider Lens™: Cloud Transformation/Operation Services & XaaS, Germany 2019

In its latest study, ISG (Information Services Group) evaluated 128 business cloud providers and their services in Germany. Deutsche Telekom, together with Telekom Deutschland and T-Systems, is not only rated as "Leader" in nine categories, due to its attractive portfolio and strong market position, it is also rated as the German alternative to US American hyperscaler clouds. In the cloud comparison, the corporate client division T-Systems was particularly convincing in the four areas of "Public Cloud Transformation", "Managed Public Cloud Services", "IaaS – Enterprise Cloud" and "aPaaS – Application Development Platforms", thus holding its own against industry leaders such as IBM, Atos and Capgemini.

Outstanding performance: "IaaS – Enterprise Cloud"

T-Systems has been the leader among business cloud providers for many years in the category "Public Cloud Transformation". The Telekom subsidiary is also pursuing an international course of expansion in the "Managed Public Cloud Services" sector, making it one of the market leaders in Germany according to ISG. In particular, the analyst firm highlights its expertise in public cloud transformation, the development of cloud platforms and related operations services, and the provision of best practices for building IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services in private, hybrid and public cloud environments. The analysts therefore view T-Systems as top dog under the business cloud providers when it comes to "IaaS – Enterprise Cloud".
