The speed of innovation in IT and Telecommunications is getting faster. For several years, Deutsche Telekom has been successfully focussing on close cooperation with its partners, using an Open Innovation strategy.

Partnering is an essential part of the Group’s strategy.

Netflix, Microsoft, Huawei, Mojio, as well as numerous other innovation partnerships illustrate Deutsche Telekom’s ability to cooperate with a variety of different partners. It is our stated goal to become the number one operator for Partnering, thus complementing our core assets, such as network, sales, service and brand.

Partnering is an essential part of the Group’s strategy, guided by the principle of “simplifying, digitalising, speeding up”. By means of strategic partnerships, Deutsche Telekom wants to provide valuable solutions to its customers faster and simpler. Moreover, digitalised and automated production processes will lead to an increase in productivity.

Different types of partner cooperation models create win-win situations. Both sides benefit from the other’s strong market and brand presence, working together on successful new products. By offering the latest developments and services, Deutsche Telekom is able to distinguish itself from its competitors.
To achieve this goal, Deutsche Telekom is searching the innovation hotspots of the world for the best national and international partners for its ecosystem. This means that small start-ups can just as well become partners at eye-level as the large, globally operating corporations.

Our concept is: open the door to explore synergies and intensify cooperation.
