The Chief Financial Officer Technology at Deutsche Telekom speaks exclusively to Business Chief Europe
Embracing a new wave of digitisation, Deutsche Telekom has ambitious plans to remain Europe’s leading telecom provider.
Converging its network technologies (NT) and information technologies (IT) into one department, the firm has fostered innovation and efficiency.
On top of this, the German telecom is undergoing one of the biggest network modernisations in its history and has restructured some of its department teams.
“Digitisation is inevitable, it simply will happen, so it’s better that you take it in your own hands rather than let it happen to you passively. Ask any player out there and they will tell you that digitisation is mission critical,” said Kai-Ulrich Deissner.
“We strategically see ourselves as the leading European telecom.”
