T Systems is a global company with about 52,000 employees worldwide. It is an ICT company. ICT is for information and communication technology. T Systems had revenue in 2012 of about $10 billion euro. We at T Systems shape the connected future of business and society and add value for innovative ICT solutions for our customers.
We have developed, two years ago, a new portfolio element, which is called Fit for Collaboration. Fit for Collaboration is a standardized methodology for migrations from On Premise Exchange, Lotus Notes, or SharePoint, into the DCS cloud. DCS Cloud is a private cloud from T Systems. We analyzed several migration tools, and the decision was to use Dell Software migration tool because we have the own experience done with a large migration project. Round about 230,000 mail boxes we migrated. And the second thing, were technical aspects, for example, the coexistence, which is offered by these migration tools. We are currently working with very large customers. They need the coexistence, which is a real advantage of the Dell software migration tools.
The development effort for collaboration was done together with Dell software professional services. They supported us during the project phase, for example, in creating the migration concept, which is a standardized template, which we use for all our migrations and our guidelines and scripts, which are used by our technical colleagues. We minimize risk during the migration because we are working together with the professional services of Dell Software.
We have a very open and short way of communication with Dell Software. We can always contact them via phone or link, and we get the answers immediately. We are flexible and very fast to answer to the customer's questions and RFPs. The partnership between T Systems and Dell is a very strong one because we have the synergy between our standardized migration methodology and the market leader migration tools, like Migration Manager for Exchange or Notes and the coexistence. This is a perfect combination for being successful with our customers.
