Connectivity is key to SEAT’s future success. To become a leader in this field, SEAT went in search of the ideal partner to implement its vision of a pioneering mobile ecosystem. It opted for T-Systems due to the two companies’ long-standing project collaboration and to the speed and reliability with which T-Systems implements environments in the cloud and provides corresponding support.
