T-SYSTEMS TAKES A RADICAL APPROACH TO DIGITISATION AT ITS ‘INTOUCH TECHNOLOGY 2016’ EVENT

T-systems South Africa hosted its second annual ‘InTouch Technology’ event in June 2016 , taking a radical spin on digital transformation, and showing how the ICT leader is abandoning traditional rules to ICT outsourcing – in favour of lower-risk, flexible partnerships with customers and guaranteed cost-savings. Within this re-imagined outsourcing framework, known as “un-outsourcing”, clients enjoy new levels of freedom, reduce the risk of exploring new technologies – and can finally burst free from the shackles of lock-in.

explains Gert Schoonbee, MD of T-Systems South Africa.“This new style of partnership shakes-up the IT outsourcing landscape. We realise bold steps need to be taken to enable our clients’ rapid evolution towards new digital business models.” The event’s structure – a fast-paced series of half-hour discussions, demos, keynotes and customer stories – will cover a wide spectrum of industry innovations and topics relating to digital disruption.‘In Touch Technology 2016’ takes place in Midrand, Gauteng on 12 May, and in Cape Town on 19 May.
