REDMOND, Wash. — March 9, 2011 — Deutsche Telekom AG subsidiary TSystems International GmbH today announced it is migrating its managed desktop services to Windows 7 Enterprise. The decision to move 250,000 managed seats to Windows 7 was part of the company’s decision to standardize desktop deployment on the latest information technology, which will provide increased security, reduced costs and greater productivity to Deutsche Telekom PC users around the world.
“The new technologies available in Windows 7 are relevant for information and communication technology systems, and we’re excited about the numerous features we can pass along to our customers,” said Dr. Ferri Abolhassan, member of the T-Systems Board of Management and head of Production. “With features like BitLocker and DirectAccess, for example, customers will get increased efficiency for their processes and IT platforms.”
By upgrading to Windows 7, T-Systems is providing greater flexibility and productivity to its external and internal customers at Deutsche Telekom.
