Since the advent of cloud computing in 2005, T-Systems have made yearly strides, driven by innovation to achieve cloud computing world leadership.

In 2004, T-Systems became one of the first companies in the world to work on cloud computing applications.  Shortly, thereafter in 2005, T-Systems started uploading these business applications (SAP) to the cloud with 15 customers using our dynamic platform.

Today, this figure is more than 600 and their cloud journey includes highlights such as:

  • The migration of Europe’s largest SAP system to the cloud;
  • The largest order in Shell‘s corporate history in 2009 (migration of 8,000 servers worldwide to dynamic data centers);
  • The biggest transition to a dynamic collaboration platform in 2011 (migration of 200,000 workstations worldwide from Lotus Notes to Microsoft Exchange and Lync); and
  • Operation of 15,000 cloud servers worldwide by T-Systems in 2012.

T-Systems is the only service provider with a dynamic portfolio of ICT solutions from a single source.

T-Systems will be demonstrating their leading technological industry advancements in a topical keynote presentation and interactive workshop session at the Cloud East Africa Summit. The summit offers attendees an invaluable opportunity to converse with IT industry peers in an attempt to understand, evaluate and find solutions to enterprise computing challenges, including public networks, data storage reliability, bandwidth management, data security, and enterprise computing models and processes.
