T-Systems South Africa is relocating to new premises in Rosebank in January 2020, in a move that will drive workforce collaboration and heighten efficiencies. This will allow the company to align its work environment with its 2020 Business Transformation Strategy, positioning the business for growth, stability and agility.
Driving higher performance
As the company moves towards a ‘leaner’ model that focuses on customer-centricity and partnerships, it requires a new open, flexible workspace that fosters transparency, agility, collaboration and accountability to drive higher performance. The office space is also geared towards comfort, wellness and convenience with an open plan design that enhances communication.
Supporting the strategy
Dineo Molefe, MD at T-Systems South Africa, says, “As we move forward, embracing a new way of doing business, this requires a new working environment that supports our goals. Our people are central to achieving our Business 2020 Transformation Strategy and play a pivotal role in creating an innovative, dynamic and agile environment for the growth of the business, not just in a profitable way but also in a meaningful manner too.”
Molefe is transforming the business to drive growth and stability for the business amidst a challenging marketplace and a changing client base. She explains, “This has driven us to create a strong focus on our core competencies and identify new opportunities where we can leverage our strengths, expertise and international muscle. We are continuing to drive business in our areas of excellence, identifying what no longer serves our customers and our business, pursuing opportunities for us to jointly succeed with our partners and customers and ensuring we conduct business with integrity.”
Transforming for success
T-Systems has transformed its business in order to assist its customers to streamline and improve performance across the enterprise, strengthening agility and security whilst simplifying the integration of new technology with existing infrastructure. To achieve this transformation, T-Systems South Africa has streamlined the organisation to focus on the following four enablement areas for its customers.
- Connectivity – the basis for successful digitisation, we apply highest quality standards and operational excellence offering fast, agile and secure access to data and applications worldwide.
- Digital – building tomorrow needs a trusted and skilled digital services provider that can integrate cloud, IoT, security and networks with an agile end-to-end approach.
- Cloud and Infrastructure – harnessing the potential of cloud for a business: use the experience of a multi-cloud orchestration provider and a cloud pioneer with more than 10 years of experience.
- Security – with Europe’s largest integrated Cyber Defense and Security Operation Centre we create the Cyber Security Protection Shield for our customers. We offer the same high, professional standard “Made in Germany” with which we protect ourselves.
Molefe explains further, “These are the foundations that deliver value in our customers’ business, creating the underlying framework to thrive in a digital economy where innovation and disruption is fundamental to success and sustainability. Our goal is to evolve our customers’ business and resolve their greatest challenges, enabling them to better manage complexity and focus on opportunities to accelerate their success.”
“We are also tightening our strategic vendor partnerships and integrating our sales and delivery areas to create more value and deliver seamless services.”
The company’s Business 2020 Transformation Strategy will continue to support its Nation Building Initiative that is aligned with the National Development Plan 2030, boosting education, skills transfer and employment opportunities for South Africa’s youth.
Molefe concludes, “I am excited about the strategy, transformation and relocation to new premises and the possibilities it creates for a more focused organisation. This strengthens our ability to resolve critical business issues for our customers in a competitive environment and enabling them to thrive.”
