This strategic partnership will address the digital transformation of industrial and commercial customers.

ALE, operating under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise brand, has today announced the expansion of its partnership with T-Systems International, a leading global provider of IT solutions and services, to bring technology advances to German businesses. The new strategic agreement joins two leading technology organizations with a goal to advance German businesses as they take advantage of the new wave of communications and digital innovations driving enterprise mobility and the adoption of new business models via the cloud. Together, both companies will closely work with customers to integrate technology developments such as Internet of Things (IoT), Unified Communications (UC), and Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) with traditional communications and IT. 

T-Systems and ALE have an established presence and proven success in public sector projects across Germany. The expanded partnership will look beyond this to target new customers in industrial, transportation, commerce and retail sectors by offering the full ALE portfolio of advanced cloud, hybrid and on-premise communication and networking solutions. Additionally, the two companies will explore mutual involvement in major sales and partner events in 2018.

Alfons Hoyer, Channel Account Manager, ALE Deutschland GmbH

It will build on the close cooperation we already have on multi-million Euro customer projects in Germany, by bringing together our salesforces to work on new projects and focus on new markets.”
