The Cloud Integration Center (CIC) provides companies a T-Systems solution for migrating their Cloud applications, using additional standard applications as well as commercializing own developments on the service catalogue via a shared project and a standardized process.
The T-Systems Cloud Integration Center offers a joint platform – covering both self-managed and managed services – for Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS) operations. In the Cloud Integration Center, Companies can use the Cloud in three different ways – obtaining applications as required out of the Cloud, migrating their own applications to the highly secure T-Systems private Cloud and developing their own Cloud offerings, which they can also make available to other companies.
The pre-configured applications in the service catalogue can be put in operation in a short time. Companies can also scale the applications as required. The portfolio includes wide-ranging Infrastructure-as-a-Service (e.g. MS Windows, Linux), Platform-as-a-Service (e.g. Tomcat, MS SQL Server, MySQL, MS IIS) and complex managed services (e.g. Sharepoint, Enterprise Search) solutions. T-Systems checks the quality and security of newly developed applications before they are released as Managed Services in the Cloud Integration Center.
Rapid access to necessary specialized applications
Faster implementation of new business models
Needs-based pay-as-you-go process
Managed Services free up staff for other tasks
Variety of pre-configured, security-tested applications
Independent ordering and configuration subject to the appropriate authorization
IT department’s costs and Application Management budgets are lower and used in a more targeted way
Modular service booking
Depending on the companies wishes they can manage their applications themselves or assign all these tasks to T-Systems as Managed Services. The service configuration can be customized for each application. Specialty and IT departments with the appropriate authorization can configure, start and stop all applications by using a self-service portal. The company’s authorized unit releases assigned services before they are available to use. Services are invoiced after being occupied.
Secure and reliable
The Cloud Integration Center is part of the highly secure T-Systems private Cloud. The certified data centers ensure availability of up to 99.98 percent and are amenable to the strictest German and European security standards and privacy regulations. MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) or VPN (Virtual Private Network) ensures a secure connection to the customer network.
Running applications in the cloud
Business applications can now be configured, operated and scaled easily in the cloud as IaaS, PaaS or SaaS.
Migrating applications to the cloud
Alongside pre-configured applications you can also migrate your existing applications to the Cloud Integration Center and operate them securely there.
Wide choice of applications
You will find the most diverse applications in the Cloud Integration Center which enable you to respond quickly to business requirements. Deploy a database or application server, for example, in just a few minutes.
Applications as business model
You can also use the Cloud Integration Center to market your own applications. You decide yourself whether the application should only be available to your own company or to all users of the Cloud Integration Center.
Pay as you go
In Cloud Integration Center you only pay for the resources you actually use (pay as you go). This allows your IT department to cut costs and make more targeted use of its budgets.
