BT and Deutsche Telekom have expanded their enterprise portfolios as they look to boost their struggling business arms.
BT Global Services has launched a platform-as-a-service offering for the enterprise market as it looks to help companies to develop new digital products.
Developed in partnership with management and technology consultancy BearingPoint, the BT Personalised Compute Management System (PCMS) comprises two key features.
First, it enables businesses to resell existing digital ecosystem services from the UK-based operator, such as Cloud Compute, Compute Storage and Apps from BT.
Second, PCMS offers more than 45 business support processes, including product management, customer management and user authentication, that companies can use to create new business models or sell directly to their end customers.
The platform will be available globally during the final quarter of 2017, BT said.
Neil Lock, Vice President Compute at BT Global Services, said: “PCMS brings to life a vision of how businesses can innovate in the digital economy.
“It is a ready-made platform that allows new ways for companies to digitalise, manage and build profitable business models from their own vibrant ecosystem of consumers, producers and innovators.”
Meanwhile, Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has revealed its public cloud service is now available to customers in Asia-Pacific.
On offer in Europe since March 2016, T-Systems has launched Open Telekom Cloud via a data centre in Singapore.
The service enables companies to buy IT infrastructure, such as storage and security, on a pay-as-you go basis.
T-Systems promised to “gradually expand” the range of Open Telekom Cloud features available in Singapore “based on customers' needs”.
Both Global Services and T-Systems have struggled of late.
Global Services saw profits dive following an accounting scandal in Italy last year, while T-Systems registered a 5.2 percent fall in revenues in the first six months of 2017.
