Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has teamed up with Microsoft in its latest effort to win more of the public cloud market.

The partnership between T-Systems and US company will focus on four areas: SAP applications, managed services on Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365, digital solutions based on AI/mixed reality and the Internet of Things.

The IoT will be the first area of collaboration, with a new “Cloud of Things – built on Azure” offering.

This will see the likes of remote monitoring for logistics, after sales solutions in the automotive space and track and trace solutions offered on an "out of the box" basis.

Additional features such as device and user management and analytics are also included.

In a statement, the two companies said those who took up the offering could achieve global scale thanks to the 50 “regions” in which Azure is available.

T-Systems CEO Adel Al-Saleh said: “One of the central building blocks in the realignment of T-Systems is our 'Public Cloud first' strategy.

"I am all the more pleased that we further combine Microsoft’s cloud offerings with our services and products and synthesize our strengths as a service provider for the European industry on the one hand and globally operating cloud provider on the other.”

Meanwhile, T-Systems also announced it was combining its Detecon, Multimedia Solutions and Global Systems Integration units into a new digital-focused division.

This aims to bring together consultants, platform and architecture experts, DevOps specialists and data analysts into agile, interdisciplinary teams that will help customers with digital transformation.

Peter Klingenburg, Managing Director of T-Systems Multimedia Solutions, said: "The number of digital projects in companies is constantly increasing and so are the requirements.

“At the same time, digital experts are becoming increasingly difficult to find.

“With 4,800 digital experts, we are bundling our power for digital client projects of all sizes.”
