The new contract ensures the operation of the entire IT infrastructure. This includes computer center and storage services as well as server operation for the central workplace services. The contract has a term of six years and a volume in the mid three-digit million Euro range.

Georg Buttner, MD of gkv informatik
The decision in favor of T-Systems was based on the fact that T-Systems meets our requirements for an efficient and experienced partner. T Systems impressed us with its quality, cost-effectiveness and security.

Bernd Wagner, Head of the 'Sales Germany' Business Unit
This new contract deals with operating social data. These data are particularly sensitive and especially protected. This is why security together with quality and price play such an outstanding role. The fact that gkv informatik entrusts us with its sensitive data is of special importance. It shows how much trust we have earned in the industry.
