Deutsche Telekom’s business solutions division, T-Systems, has won a landmark deal with BP Plc.
T-Systems will provide the energy group with voice and data services over a period of five years.
It will carry out a transformation programme to simplify BP’s network by reducing the number of suppliers.
This is expected to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
A multi-sourcing model will be introduced which will allow BP units to chose communications services that best meet their needs.
Reinhard Clemens, T-Systems’ CEO, said: “In the current economic climate, it is imperative that ICT providers demonstrate a clear ability to have a positive impact on their clients’ business performance.
“From today, it will be a priority for T-Systems to apply our combination of IT and Telecommunications capabilities to deliver strong business results for BP.”
T-Systems recently announced a new energy-efficient data center in São Paulo, Brazil which will house 2,000 servers.
