The right skills for a successful future
Employees and their skills have strategic priority
The IT service provider T-Systems is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG and operates in more than 20 countries worldwide. 28,000 employees must always be up to date, because they accompany the digital transformation of major companies around the world. This includes industry-specific consulting services, reliable multi-cloud services, innovative digital solutions and strong security services – from concept to implementation. At T-Systems, industry expertise meets perfectly integrated solutions from a single source. Following a comprehensive transformation into a specialist service provider for multi-cloud and digitization solutions, the Telekom subsidiary is on course for growth. T-Systems’ portfolio is highly technology-heavy. Today, the IT company employs data scientists, experts in artificial intelligence, blockchain, IT and cloud architects or digital engineers and tech consultants. Learning as well as skills and resource management have been key topics and firmly anchored at T-Systems for many years. On the tool side, this process has been supported by decídalo from Data Assessment Solutions since 2014. During this time alone, markets and technology have undergone disruptive change. As a result, the skills required of employees have changed rapidly.
A marketplace about all projects creates transparency
At T-Systems, project requirements are published on the decídalo marketplace. Employees have transparency about open project positions and receive suggestions that fit their profile and development goals. The marketplace is not only an important tool for project staffing and workload management, but also enables effective skills development “on the job”. Employees don’t have to wait until the next project comes their way. The company also benefits from a positive effect on overall capacity utilization.
For T-Systems’ customer projects, it is important to quickly find employees with the right skills. “Our experts are constantly putting their skills to the test in customer projects – sometimes for just a few days, or over many months, as with the Corona Warn app”, explains Günter Greulich.
A WIN-WIN partnership
Günter Greulich appreciates the cooperation with the team from Data Assessment Solutions as a good partnership:
“We got what we needed and can provide impulses for a meaningful further development of the tool.” The software is now in use in 13 Deutsche Telekom Group units – with a total of 80,000 users. The marketplace will play an even greater role in the future. The plan is to create an overarching pool of project tenders that can be accessed by all Telekom units.
