T-Systems is extending its collaboration with Google Cloud to innovate jointly on end-to-end services using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

The partners are targeting industries such as public sector, healthcare, automotive and public transport.

By joining forces, both aim to help companies and government institutions in their digitisation efforts by combining Google’s data and industry portfolio with T-Systems’ footprint, expertise and understanding of user needs in strategic focus areas.

Users should benefit from a range of scalable and production-ready offerings that accelerate both their journeys to the cloud and their overall digital transformations. In addition, T-Systems is now certified by Google Cloud as a managed services provider.

“The partnership with Google Cloud is an excellent fit with our strategy,” said Adel Al-Saleh, CEO of T-Systems. “Integrating the strength of Google Cloud’s leading capabilities, especially AI and ML, with our industry-specific solutions and know-how will bring significant value to our clients. While we’re currently focusing on the public sector, health, automotive and public transport sectors, over time we will expand to other industries.”

Since announcing their partnership in 2020, Google Cloud and T-Systems have been working together to deliver managed services to help enterprises and public institutions digitally transform with the cloud.

The certified managed services provider status will help T-Systems deliver Google Cloud offerings. Moving forward, the joint focus will be on delivering value at scale by solving user’s problems in driving business transformation through data-powered innovation.

“We’re excited that we will combine T-Systems’ industry expertise and vast consulting experience together with our leading capabilities in AI, ML, data analytics and more, to solve joint customers’ most critical problems,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. “Customers are seeking a partner to not just lift-and-shift applications to the cloud, but also to help them digitally transform, and that’s what this partnership with T-Systems will bring to the industry.”
