Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has won a contract to run German energy and mining group LEAG’s IT estate.

T-Systems will run LEAG’s complete IT infrastructure in the cloud and provide Germany's fourth-largest energy supplier with the likes of SAP services, digital workplaces and T-Systems’ ServiceNow management software.

Financial details of the contract were not disclosed, but Deutsche Telekom said it had beaten 18 competitors to win the deal.

Frank Strecker, SVP of T-Systems Cloud, said: "Thanks to our proprietary data centers and extensive ecosystem of cloud partners, we can offer highly standardised cloud solutions reliably and with top security.”

LEAG Chief Executive Helmar Rendez said: "A focus on the future is a crucial factor for us.

“We are facing up to the digital transformation and want to embed digitization as a firm corporate value in our DNA.”

Earlier this month, Deutsche Telekom announced it had hired a new CEO for T-Systems as it looks to reboot the underperforming business unit.

However, the operator did not reveal the identity of the new leader, who is slated to replace Reinhard Clemens in January next year.

Revenues at T-Systems fell by over five percent to €3.4 billion in the first half of this year and by 3.5 percent to €7.9 billion in 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA slumped over 24 percent to €232 million in H1 2017 and over 21 percent to €582 million last year.
