Google and T-Systems Partner on Managed Services and Cloud Competence Center

By Laura Stotler

Google Cloud and German digitalization and ICT specialists T-Systems have teamed up to offer managed services to the enterprise. The companies are partnering and will leverage Google Cloud capabilities to help enterprise customers with their digital transformations and migrations to the cloud.

T-Systems, the business services division of Deutsche Telekom, will offer consulting services, migration support and a variety of managed services to enterprise customers through the new partnership. The company will also create a new Google Cloud competence center, focused on helping enterprises evaluate their business needs as well as build and implement custom cloud solutions.

“Our joint goal is to support organizations in their digitization and to improve business processes with the cloud,” said Adel Al-Saleh, CEO of T-Systems. “This partnership is a core element of our strategy, generating value add for our clients with managed cloud services.”

The new Google Cloud competence center will focus on solutions for a variety of enterprise industries, including manufacturing, automotive, the public sector and logistics. It will be staffed by T-Systems’ business transformation experts, who will focus on a number of managed services. These include large-scale workload migrations to the cloud, development of new AI and machine learning solutions, cloud analytics and SAP application modernization.

“T-Systems’ experience in the management of enterprise IT environments and its expertise in business transformation will be an asset to customers evaluating and implementing cloud solutions,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.

The partnership should give Google Cloud a boost in its increasingly aggressive competition with AWS and Microsoft Azure. T-Systems is already a Microsoft Gold Partner as well as an Amazon Web Services Advanced Consulting Partner. The company also works with Cisco Systems, SAP, Salesforce, ServiceNow and VMware.

T-Systems has been working to expand its business as a digitalization and managed services powerhouse, and already has locations in more than 20 countries. The company recently helped Asian healthcare services group Zuellig Pharm migrate to Microsoft Azure and implement SAP HANA.

Late last year T-Systems also opened a new Cyber Defense Center in Singapore, designed to help international customers achieve a high level of cyber defense globally.
