Deutsche Telekom – Leader in Business Network & IT Services in Europe, April 2019

Telekom always has an eye on the latest technology trends. GlobalData has confirmed this and again classified the telecommunications company as the leading communication and network service provider in Europe according to their latest analyst report on Business Services in Europe. In the benchmark, the Telekom subsidiary T-Systems is rated a leader in Business Network & IT Services in the categories Vision and Strategy, Momentum and Stability, and Service and Support. It also shows leadership in the segments Data Center and Cloud Services and Network Access and VPNs. In addition, GlobalData considers the offering in the areas of Innovation, Product Portfolio and Go-to-Market to be "very strong."
Decisive criteria for the evaluation include high credibility, outstanding quality and financial strength of the company in Germany and Europe. The Zero Outage Initiative and first-class network security make T-Systems a reliable partner – an aspect that their customer satisfaction surveys underscore. T-Systems also continued to develop its Enterprise IoT business and expanded its network and communications portfolio to address key technology trends in the areas of WAN, SD-WAN, LAN, SD-LAN and UCC as well as Enterprise Mobility, Managed Security and Cloud solutions.
