With IP technology, we can build standardized platforms into which our partners simply plug in their
services as they would with a power strip. We all benefit: partners, customers, and ourselves.
The partners can focus on developing their products and services while we operate in the background,
taking care of technical issues, managing the processes, and integrating their offerings in our portfolio.
The customers can choose from an extensive range of innovative products and services and buy the
partner-developed options directly from us. We're the face to the customer. We handle invoicing, customer
services and - when selling to business customers - any maintenance services for partner solutions.
Consumers can pay for the partner services, such as Dropbox, Spotify or Evernote, through their Telekom bill.
The same simple ordering and payment system applies to business customer services and solutions from the cloud,
too. Deutsche Telekom´s growing partner ecosystem includes solutions from SAP, Microsoft, Cisco, Salesforce, VMWare,
Oracle, Informatica, and others. In addition to the classic network and IT infrastructure options, Deutsche Telekom
offers three cloud portals with a wide range of partner solutions to meet all needs.
