It should be noted that T-Systems is a German multinational whose parent company is Deutsche Telecom and this allows them to work with other large companies and administrations, both public and private, not only nationally, but also internationally. Moreover, part of its leadership in the technology sector is due to the development of network projects, so that they communicate with clients globally without losing competitiveness. Rather, the other way around, since all workers focus on a clear objective: attracting talent.

Currently, these digitization services and access to the cloud are required in industrial sectors, the public sector, insurance companies, retail companies, etc., because “these applications allow them to be more competitive, they favor them to provide supplies, in the sale and production, to improve health or promote services to the citizen”, explains David Oliva. The proximity that T-Systems fosters with its customers has made them see how any field is evolving. And for that reason, preferences have changed when hiring new staff.

Redessa, a technological cluster

That is the philosophy with which they have always worked in the Reus offices, in these 15 years, through the Value Center of the city and, mainly, in the offices located on Camí de Valls street and in the Redessa buildings. In fact, from the company they consider that the area “is a cluster ICT of the South Cataloniaso it is very interesting for them to maintain the consistency of their growth in the demarcation».

In addition, at the local level, they collaborate with municipal initiatives of the City Hall of Reus or Tarragonaas would be the recent case of the Digital Innovation Hub.

Projects of this transversal nature place them in parallel with other European countries and, consequently, position them in the Agenda 2030 and with its objectives for technological and sustainable development. David Oliva expresses that “they are convinced that they have to achieve the goals in terms of green energy and control the emissions of their activity, even reaching 0% before 2030.” In addition, he proposes that sustainability and digitization can and should go hand in hand, since both have a positive impact on society – if done correctly.

In T-Systems, municipal projects and European expectations about sustainability come together

“Our belief in creating jobs and promoting this ecosystem of the Camp de Tarragona with different institutions, both public and university as well as private, is our contribution to the growth of the territory”, concludes Oliva. Although there are other institutions that are already leading a “metropolitan area” project, the objective of T-Systems Iberia is to transfer its leadership in digital transformation to the business world as pioneers.

This will justifies their involvement, not only when relating to large multinationals as clients, but also in startups and other initiatives in the environment as collaborators. With this, T-Systems is not only concerned with business growth or international horizons, but also with reaffirming the territorial cluster.

What’s more, from the outset, they help foster constant learning among the different ‘players’, continuous training –given by the changing reality itself– and the acquisition of new knowledge that speeds up the transition to a business model that, in a future, they foresee that it will be 100% digital.
