Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY.PK) announced Catalan government has signed new deals with Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems worth more than 400 million euros in total. Catalonia invited bids for its entire IT and telecommunications systems with the aim of reducing the number of ICT service providers it uses from 200 at present to less than 20. Under the contracts with the Generalitat, the Catalan government, T-Systems will be responsible for operating workstation computers and applications, and providing user support. In addition, T-Systems is to network the public administration sites and provide telecommunications services and the data center infrastructure.
CEO of T-Systems, Reinhard Clemens, said, "The deal with Catalonia is one of the biggest deals we have won outside Germany so far. The economic situation in European countries is creating a favorable climate for big deals. When longer-term contracts come up for renewal, more and more large enterprises are looking to move partly over to cloud computing. And in Europe we are among the top players in this area."
