Technology Adoption Brings Public, Private Sectors Closer

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 12:18

Q: What opportunities have you recognized in the Mexican market that can stimulate the growth of T-Systems?

A: Technology is transforming the global economy and Mexico is no exception. In the public and private sectors, T-Systems can help to create a more agile, efficient and inclusive society. Technology can help the government to save on resources that can then be directed to necessary social programs. It can help the private sector improve operational performance and further advance its digital transformation. T-systems breaks with traditional IT paradigms to offer customized solutions to both sectors.
The public and private sectors believe it is better to have their own IT technologies but this approach represents a large investment in maintenance and qualified labor. T-Systems delivers savings for its customers while increasing the functionality and efficiency of processes. Companies and institutions that hire us can be certain that T-Systems will provide an efficient solution and will work hand in hand with them to achieve their digital transformation goals. 

Q: T-Systems offers a wide range of cloud-based management solutions. How does the company guarantee that its clients have the best solution for their needs?

A: The cloud is now at the top of every business IT agenda as the world faces a rapidly changing IT landscape. Companies increasingly require a cloud system that is specifically tailored to their needs and that can simultaneously run their native applications. Most of our clients, like SAT, belong to the premium segment and have shown interest in using hybrid cloud environments that have the ability to integrate public and private platforms. With T-Systems’ services, companies can handle a wide range of options, such as improving safeguards, adjusting cloud expenditures and relieving the pressure of using complex IT infrastructure. Each company can use the type of cloud that best suits its operations and budget in a cost-effective way, avoiding underutilization of the same technologies.
T-Systems’ solutions can be adapted to any business model and allow a client to move from a traditional model to a hybrid version. Thanks to their integration efforts and the centralization of T-Systems solutions, our clients can organize their entire IT processes and synchronize their communication networks, while also centralizing their data management. This in turn allows them to focus on their core business. 

Q: What benefits can T-Systems offer to clients?

A: Companies with their own IT infrastructure often do not have the experience, investment and specialization to deal with digital management problems. In the long term, this generates unplanned costs and makes the use of technologies more expensive. Therefore, outsourcing IT services can generate savings that are inaccessible to those that own their infrastructure. T-Systems’ business model is designed to ensure its clients pay only for the capacity they use. Additionally, the level of security is considerably higher than owning their IT infrastructure. Beyond these benefits, T-Systems is primarily useful in helping companies quickly become digital businesses that can easily and rapidly navigate a continuously changing IT environment. T-Systems believes the cloud represents the future of corporate IT but it can only be considered a benefit if a company is ready to employ it and migrate to a digital model. 

Q: What are the company’s growth expectations for the short and long terms?

A: We are awaiting the ratification of USMCA. We hope to continue supporting the manufacturing sector and especially the automotive industry. On the other hand, in past years, T-Systems has been working with government institutions like SAT and we would like to continue this collaboration. 
In the long term, the next opportunity for T-Systems will be the next great change that is coming to Mexico in terms of technology through blockchain, which will have a similar impact on democratization of technology as the internet had on communication.
