- German cloud marketplaces must be able to support the integration of business cloud and on-premise applications
- T-Systems is offering an integration platform within its German datacenters
- elastic.io is delivering pre-defined adaptors for cloud and on-premise applications as well as ready-to-use integration solutions
Bonn, 05.05.2015 – T-Systems and elastic.io make available to the corporate clients a cloud-based integration service that, legally and technically, is compliant with the highest security standards. The elastic.io integration platform provides an interactive solution for the synchronisation of data between different applications, databases and platforms. T-Systems is introducing the solution to the T-Systems and Deutsche Telecom’s clients as part of its Partner Program and in accordance with the most rigorous data protection regulations. Furthermore, T-Systems will soon offer the integration platform as-a-service on its Business Marketplace for Enterprise.
It’s important to create a homogenous cloud-ecosystem out of scattered cloud islands
The partnership between T-Systems and elastic.io solves the integration issue which cloud users are increasingly confronted with.
“Cloud and Software-as-a-Service solutions are considerably changing the today’s IT-landscape, IT purchasing behaviour and software usage. The next logical step in this trend is in the cloud marketplaces. But one of the most important success factors for each company is not only having a wider range of services and manufacturers to choose from, but also far-reaching integration possibilities that would shape scattered cloud islands to a homogenous cloud-ecosystem.”
— Renat Zubairov, CEO and Co-founder elastic.io
The elastic.io integration solution is a bridge between on-premise applications, private and public clouds. Thanks to the pre-defined adapters to numerous cloud- and on-premise applications, complicated and usually cost-intensive internal integrations are no longer necessary. T-Systems and elastic.io offer, therefore, not only an ideal and exceptional integration environment for IT system houses and software developers, but also allow a considerably faster and more cost-effective applications integration.
“On the today’s IT market, there is an almost unmanageable amount of solutions, both on-premise as well as in the cloud, that are supposed to optimise and automate business processes. However, their usage gives to the companies a truly appreciable advantage only if data between various applications can be synchronised and updated continuously. The elastic.io integration platform with it numerous interfaces and components for software integration facilitates multi-functional combinations between cloud and on-premise applications. We are glad to have a Germany-based integration expert on board now.”
— Frank Siemon, responsible for cloud partnerships with ISVs (independent software vendors) at T-Systems
“The partnership with T-Systems is a very important step for us. The clients of T-Systems and Deutsche Telekom have now full access to our technology and our experience. Our integration platform is hosted by T-Systems and is, therefore, compliant with the world’s most strict data protection regulations. We are looking forward to joint projects we will run with T-Systems.”

Faster and more secure connection of various applications
Thanks to the elastic.io iPaaS-Technology, cloud and on-premise applications and databases are integrated and connected with each other faster, more secure and cost-effective. The pre-defined and re-usable interfaces between applications optimise the digital workflows in the cloud and reduce the integration costs by up to 75%.
The support of several programming languages, the intuitive integration mapping and transfer protocols ensure a rather rapid learning curve. The elastic.io integration platform is now a part of the T-Systems product portfolio, that already offers a diverse cloud ecosystem. T-Systems will be offering 30-days free test version of the elastic.io integration platform via its Business Marketplace for Enterprise.
