Deutsche Telekom AG - Interim Group report - January 1 to September 30, 2015

30 Interim Group management report Deutsche Telekom. Interim Group Report 9M 2015. Development of business In the first nine months of 2015, T-Systems concluded new contracts in Germany and abroad; nevertheless, order entry decreased by 22.5 percent year-on-year. This is due on the one hand to the large-scale contract won in the prior-year period to set up and operate a satellite-based toll collection system for trucks in Belgium and to other major contracts in the automotive sector. And on the other hand, the decline can be attributed to the realign- ment of the business model with the aim of ensuring sustained profitable growth. In this connection, we tightened up the profitability criteria for the acceptance of new orders: In the future, we will offer services with a persistently low level of profitability via specialized partners or discontinue them completely if demand is not lucrative enough. Strengthened by the realignment, our standard solutions from the growth area of cloud computing in particular won out over strong competition. For our customers, this means that they can access an ever greater range of services from the cloud and at the same time profit from our expertise in transformation services for bringing our customers to the cloud securely. Another key component in the expansion of our cloud business is strategic partnerships. This means we offer our partnersʼ services from our data centers in Germany in order to meet our customersʼ needs. The aspects of security and high availability play a key role for T-Systems and our customers. Tomeettherequirementsfromthenewdeals,wearecontinuouslymodernizing and consolidating our ICT resources. The number of servers managed and serviced increased by 1.5 percent compared with the prior-year period as a result of the further expansion of the growth areas. At the data centers, technical advances made it possible to set up ever larger and higher-perfor- mance units, which had a positive impact on our cost efficiency. The number of workstations managed and serviced increased by 6.4 percent to 1.67 million compared with the prior-year period.
