T-Systems and Microsoft join into a strategic partnership to push Public Cloud services focusing on four pillars: SAP applications, managed services on Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365, digital solutions fueled by artificial intelligence (AI) and mixed reality and Internet of Things (IoT).

“As a company, we decided to invest massively in IoT,” Jean-Philippe Courtois, Executive Vice President of Microsoft, said at the press conference on the occasion of Hannover Messe 2018. Consequently, both companies will intensify their co-operation in the field of IoT in a first step.

“One of the central building blocks in the realignment of T-Systems is our 'Public Cloud first' strategy,” explained Adel Al-Saleh. “I am all the more pleased that we further combine Microsoft's Cloud offerings with our services and products and synthesise our strengths as a service provider for the European industry on the one hand and globally operating Cloud provider on the other.”

According to T-Systems, cloud services are becoming increasingly important in the solutions business for large customers. T-Systems plans to heavily invest in the area of Public Clouds, Al-Saleh said. (ros)
