Telekom wants to grow with Cloud for all

At the fair’s opening on Sunday, Telekom announced that it would generate revenue of 600 million euros by 2018 for small and medium-sized business customers. Now, the TK Group presented concrete solutions, with the help of which the targeted growth is to be achieved.

After TK investments in SMEs are expected to stagnate down to the areas of M2M and mobile data, Telekom intends to significantly increase spending on IT and, in particular, cloud solutions for SMEs . As Dirk Backofen, Head of Marketing Business Customers at Telekom, said at a CeBIT press conference, there is still enormous growth potential for his company: Thus, the telecom with 52.3 percent market share in small and medium-sized companies barely grow However, they claim only 2.3 percent of the German IT SMB market for themselves.

Telephone system from the network

The SME initiative focuses on secure cloud solutions and integrated modular products. New cloud offerings include the hosted DeutschlandLAN telephone systems based on Swyx or Microsoft Lync, “Managed Workplace”, hosted desktops from the private cloud, and “TeamLike”, a secure social corporate network from the German partner Mindsmash, with the help of employees internally and collaborate with partners and customers.

New for larger SMEs is the “secure data center network” offering, which enables companies to link their data centers at different locations based on EthernetConnect at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The security of the data ensures a dedicated line. At CeBIT, there are also a number of products on the market that companies, regardless of size and industry, can use to digitize their business processes. This includes software for document management (“Saperion” and “DocuLife”). In cooperation with ISEC7, Telekom also offers mobile SAP solutions that should also be suitable for small and medium- sized enterprises .

Even though Telekom cooperates with numerous partners, the Bonn-based companies provide solutions from a single source and thus take on the end-to-end responsibility. In addition to the provision, this includes operation, data transport, billing and service. In this way, according to Backofen, one wants to take the customers the fear, laboriously to look for contacts, if something does not work. And in general: As for the often reported awe of medium-sized businesses in front of the cloud, so the telecom manager, the question is no longer whether, but when the business processes would be digitized. Ultimately, cloud services with flexible and purely Opex-related costs for German SMEs would also offer the potential to catch up with Asian and US competitors.

In addition, the Bonn continue to build their networks. From the third quarter, the Telekom wants to equip the first cities with 300 Mbit / s fast LTE +, concretely according to oven thereby the radio cells are upgraded, where already already 150 Mbit / s range are possible. Corresponding speedboxes will be available from June.
