Quickly and reliably supplying cars with data from the cloud makes driving safer.
The cloud makes digital life easier. Data, computing power, and IT programs are all going online and can be accessed there as needed – almost as easily as getting electricity from the socket. We are specialists for cloud-based services. T-Systems, our corporate customer segment, offers professional IT services and our national companies operate the network infrastructure for speedy and reliable data transmissions.
We already have a leading position on the cloud market thanks to our tailored solutions for large companies, practical solutions for SMEs, and free offers for consumers. We operate data centers around the world, including the largest and most cutting-edge in Germany (in Biere/Magdeburg). We also make a unique promise to our customers: to provide them with all services from a single source, from the server center, through the network, software offers, 24-hour service, and all the way to invoicing.
All of this puts us in a good position to succeed in a seminal area. According to our estimates, the global market for cloud-based services is growing by about 25 percent annually and is set to reach a volume of 230 billion euros in 2017.Socially relevant projects like “connected driving”, e-health, the energy transition, and Industry 4.0 are not feasible without cloud-based services. To realize their full potential, we have made the cloud a strategic priority and reorganized our T-Systems segment.

We don’t back up the data.
We back up the entire data center.
The security of our customers’ data is always a top priority for us. It starts with the construction of our data centers, which have the strongest possible protection against physical and hacker attacks. To be completely save, we build twin data centers in which the data is mirrored and synchronized continuously. This allows the information to remain available even if one server suffers an outage. Beyond all construction measures, however, the key to our security guarantee is that 600 experts are constantly working on protecting the infrastructure and customer data at T-Systems.
That’s why even international firms trust us to operate their IT landscape. To meet these corporate customers’ special speed, security, and availability requirements, we offer them the “private cloud.” This is where all of their data is encrypted and transmitted over insular lines. In addition, all the data lines are redundant and we guarantee an agreed-upon connection quality in the private cloud.
Our customers appreciate this quality control program, as the third consecutive increase in customer satisfaction shows.

Location, location … data privacy
Many people in Europe are worried about whether their user data stored on foreign servers is sufficiently protected. Our location is a real advantage in this regard, because our cloud-based offers are “made in Germany.” In practice, this means that our services run over German data centers that comply with strict German data privacy regulations at the customer’s request.
We provide around
users with cloud-based SAP services.
That’s why groups like Microsoft store the data of their German customers with us, and we act as custodians of this information. If a cloud-based application we offer is not operated in Germany, we advise our customers of this fact.
