In conversation with: T-Systems director of finance, Stephan Hardt
Shereen Ali from the online magazine Financial Director interviewed Dr. Stephan Hardt, T-Systems’ Director of Finance, about the future of new business models. He explores the influence of digitalisation in relation to the changing nature of businesses in the digital age. The interview also explores the changing role and responsibilities of financial directors.
Stephan Hardt warns: “The environment is a very dynamic one in which we live and work as an ICT provider.
“We have lots of competitors. If you think about ten years ago when I started to work for Deutsche Telekom, the Googles and the Amazons were not seen as competitors, now they are competitors.
“That’s why we have to think about this long-term view, this mid-term view. The environment is entirely changing.”
