Today at Digital X, T-Systems announced a deeper focus on their partnership with VMware, making it simpler, faster and less costly for organisations to move to the cloud. This new multi-cloud powerhouse will see T- Systems create a VMware Cloud Center of Excellence, giving customers access to VMware’s portfolio of Infrastructure, application modernisation and security services. As a result, customers will be able to build, deploy, better secure and manage any application over any cloud more easily. According to T-Systems migration experts, customers may benefit from up to 40 percent lower operating costs, and 'time to production' could be reduced by half.
The VMware Cloud Center of Excellence combines T-Systems' and VMware's proven migration processes, expertise in modernising IT systems and managing multi-cloud landscapes into an end-to-end solution, now all available from a single provider. “We have jointly invested in this powerhouse to provide customers with even better support for their digitisation, ”Telekom Board of Management member and T-Systems CEO Adel Al-Saleh explained at Telekom’s Digital X event on September 13. “Customers now have exactly one point of contact for the extended VMware portfolio with T-Systems. We have also combined our entire expertise for cloud migrations with VMware organisationally in a Center of Excellence.”
T-Systems and VMware have been working closely together for many years. With Future Cloud Infrastructure (FCI), T-Systems already offers customers a migration tool based on VMware technology for any IT infrastructure. T-Systems is currently managing the migration of 450 SAP systems to the cloud for customer, Continental AG, a German automotive parts manufacturing company. The technical foundation is FCI. “We are pleased to continue working with T-Systems,” said Christian Eigler, Group CIO at Continental. “The decisive factors for us were the reliability of the applications, the flexibility of the solutions and, above all: end-to-end service – one SAP, one contact person. For all trades from consulting, migration and transformation, operation to the German-speaking hotline.”
