As a subsidiary of T-Systems International, the "Alpine Region" comprising of Austria and Switzerland is positioning itself as a top player in the field of digitization, with revenues of more than €300 million (2018) – the highest revenue for any region outside of Germany.
We see this cooperation between Austria and Switzerland as a great opportunity to play a major role in shaping the future of T-Systems. We are creating synergies for companies through the joint-customer structures in the sectors of industry, logistics, automotive and healthcare.
Combining forces makes the international portfolio even better available locally. The two countries are similar, with their structures and portfolios complementing each other excellently. Through close cooperation, we are creating a leaner organization, taking advantage of cross-border synergies, pooling our expert know-how and thus making our market presence more competitive.
With a digital portfolio, T-Systems supports its customers on the path of real, end-to-end and scalable digitization, focusing on the four areas of Multi Cloud & Infrastructure, Connectivity, Digital and Security. T-Systems Austria and Switzerland focus on cloud services, security, SAP, connectivity and automation.
In general, T-Systems expects increased demand in the areas of Big Data Analytics, Business Intelligence (BI), IoT and security solutions in 2020. In this area, companies have recognized the signs of the times and are placing a focus on security concepts. T-Systems sees another focus in the orchestration of multi-cloud solutions. The year 2020 will be of interest for everything to do with 5G, especially real-time applications and industrial campus networks.
In 2020, T-Systems’ operations in Switzerland will split between Deutsche Telekom Global Business Solutions Schweiz AG (DTGBS) (10 employees) and T-Systems Schweiz AG (560 employees). TC operations will move to DTGBS, under Telekom Deutschland, whilst IT solutions will remain part of T-Systems. Both companies continue to have their headquarters in Zollikofen close to Bern.
