Frankfurt am Main, June 04, 2007
As one of the leading service providers of information and communica-tions technology (ICT) in Europe, T-Systems intends to double its share of international revenue to 30 percent by 2010 and assume a leadership position in key Western European markets. New international deals confirm this growth strategy.
T-Systems is modifying the infrastructure and integrating systems to create innovative e-government services in Barcelona. Together with Dublin and Helsinki, Barcelona has been selected to be set up as a model city for improved citizen service with the support of the European Union. The European Union is co-financing the international project ICING (Innovative Cities for the Next Generation) with around 5 million euros and an estimated duration of 30 months. T-Systems is developing new solutions for integrating IT and communications technologies for public institutions and offices in Barcelona. The ICT service provider was selected for the project due to its experience in successfully executing projects for the public sector. T-Systems is an ICT partner of over 500 public sector clients in Spain, including seven government administrations and over 50 major cities and communities.
In Austria, T-Systems has sealed two contracts for the global connection of company locations. The office furniture designer Bene AG uses a voice and data network based on the Internet Protocol (IP) to accelerate internal, cross-border communication at 46 locations. For the globally leading tile manufacturer Wienerberger AG, T-Systems is connecting locations in Germany, France, the US, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Estonia and Russia with the company headquarters in Austria. T-Systems has been an outsourcing partner for SAP operations at the company since last year, and, together with Telekom Austria as its partner, is now taking over the entire network for Wienerberger AG.
Together with T-Systems, the Graubündner Kantonalbank (GKB) in Switzerland has successfully concluded the biggest IT project in its history: migration to the standard banking solution by Finnova. At the same time, GKB has outsourced all of its information technology to the T-Systems Banking Competence Center in Chur, Switzerland. In the scope of this outsourcing project, Finnova and T-Systems also took on the bank's IT employees. Now, 100 experts work at the T-Systems Banking Competence Center for GKB and other banks.
