Our journey into the South African ICT market starts just three years after the birth of our democracy. In 1997, T-Systems International, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom invested in South Africa bringing expertise, innovation and intellectual property of a global ICT provider. We are a company that transform our clients and our country by delivering innovative “ICT that Works”, in South Africa and for South Africa. We are entrusted to run our clients’ most critical ICT networks, applications and systems.
T-Systems guides customers on the way to digitalization. We offer integrated solutions from one source: from secure operation of existing systems and conventional IT and telecommunication services to transformation into the cloud, including international networks. From demand-oriented infrastructure, platforms, and software, down to new business models and innovation projects in the Internet of Things. The basis for this is the global reach of landline and mobile communications, high-security data centers, a comprehensive cloud ecosystem with standardized platforms, worldwide partnerships, and the highest security.
Use the experience of a multi- and hybrid cloud orchestration provider and a cloud pioneer with more than 10 years of experience.
Strategy first, always- The current global situation has forced businesses to develop new routes to market, new products, new business models and more. Agility is no longer a source of competitive advantage; it is the only way to survive. Cloud services is an invaluable tool in helping enterprises to be more efficient and adapt faster to change.
T-Systems is constantly developing its network infrastructure as a driving force of digitalization and invests billions into it annually. Internet protocol (IP) is an increasingly-popular technical basis. Next generation networks (NGN) and all-IP networks give companies the opportunity to offer their services and applications with new business models on the internet.
T-Systems focuses on the ongoing development of managed SD-WAN solutions – based on the technologies of market leading SD-WAN partners. T-Systems' own IP VPN platform will be expanded with SD-WAN functionalities. In this way, we can create an end-to-end solution for large companies with complex network requirements. Furthermore, we offer standardized solutions as managed SD-WAN overlay services.
Whether it's cloud computing, artificial intelligence, or big data – all of these technologies present entirely new requirements for IT security. In addition to this, cyber attacks on company networks and IT systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and have developed into a huge threat to the economy. As such, data protection and security are a decisive factor for success. For this reason, Deutsche Telekom founded the "Telekom Security" department under the umbrella of T-Systems. It collects all security activities together, along with the experience of around 1,700 security experts. In this way, the Group does everything it can to protect its own IT systems and networks, as well as the data from corporate and private customers, against online attacks.
T-Systems South Africa offers an advanced cyber defence portfolio of services, with the Cyber Defence Centre (CDC) in Rosebank at its core. One of 17 integrated facilities worldwide, the CDC represents 10 years of diligent investment in people, infrastructure, and technology aimed at achieving Zero Impact.
Disruptive technologies bring about entirely new requirements for IT security – not least thanks to the exponential rise in cyber crime.
T-Systems controls operative business according to business fields. These four subject areas are the main focus points: connectivity, the digital world, the cloud, and security.
To be more specific, this includes network services, infrastructure solutions based on public and private cloud platforms, SAP, high-security solutions for public clients, customer-specific system integration options, digitalization solutions and offers on topics like the Internet of Things, security and tolls, as well as health and smart cities. The respective business fields hold the operative responsibility starting with solution design, through specialist distribution, down to the total responsibility for delivery and customer service.
The offers are not only stand-alone, they can also be combined with one another according to different individual customer requirements. The individual portfolios also partly build on one another, like SAP solutions, for example. Not only can these be applied to public cloud portfolios, they can be applied to the infrastructure of the Managed Infrastructure Service offers too. The T-Systems company portfolio therefore offers the basis of an integrated IT services offer for our customers.
In the market for conventional information and communication technology, there is a huge amount of pressure in terms of competition and price. At the same time, trends open up new growth opportunities.
This strategic development of T-Systems is also supported by the Group strategy "Leading Telco", with its four focus points: "integrated IP networks", "exciting customers", "winning with partners", and "leading with business customers".
To ensure your company can also stay on the button, we design an integrated portfolio for you with our four constant focus points of connectivity, digitalization, cloud and infrastructure, and security.
In this way, we can support your company's transformation with high-performing assets: for a real, end-to-end, and scalable digitalization process.
