Deutsche Telekom is expanding its cloud services for Central and Eastern Europe. Together with Microsoft, it will provide highly standardized cloud acceleration services for the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform, Dynamics 365 and Office 365 services across nine countries, from Poland to Greece.
It is the next step in the strategic partnership announced by Microsoft and Deutsche Telekom last year. Telekom's goal is to provide cloud services as an accelerator of digital transformation in the region. The automated services will enable cloud adoption within minutes, saving customers between 30-50 percent of IT operations costs, compared to on-premise solutions, claims Deutsche Telekom.
The cloud experts will therefore be offering highly standardized services based on Office 365, Microsoft Azure and Dynamics 365 with support from Microsoft. This also includes an assessment of the current state of IT, migration to the cloud and managed services. Deutsche Telekom complements Microsoft products with its own security packages.
The cloud offers cover Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Greece. Telekom makes the resources available across the board, as required, in a mix of on- and off-site.
