South African glass manufacturers Consol Glass has extended its contract with T-Systems in the country for a further five years.
Johan du Plessis, Chief Information Officer at Consol Glass, said: “We have worked with T-Systems for the past six years therefore our extension of the contract was a natural choice.”
In 2011, the partnership saw T-Systems assisting Consol to migrate its SAP business application infrastructure to T-Systems’ cloud computing platform.
du Plessis added: “Our working experience together provides them with a richer understanding of our organisation and thus enables us to effectively plan for our future requirements. They have proven to be a stable partner that has demonstrated their ability to deliver.
“There was no compelling reason to go to market again as our contract features a comprehensive business review process which also forms part of the new, extended partnership ensuring optimum value.”
Gert Schoonbee, Managing Director at T-Systems in South Africa, said: “The success of our relationship lies in our mutually beneficial business contract which is based on T-Systems’ history of innovation leadership.
“Consol is an early adopter of appropriate technology and together with our leadership position in technology and consistent delivery, made excellent business sense.”
