The afternoon thematic sessions were opened by Vilmos Vályi-Nagy, the newly appointed Minister of State for Infocommunication at the Ministry of National Development.At the first Symposium of the renewed T-Systems Hungary, renowned Hungarian and international experts demonstrated the trends and solutions that determine the present and future of infocommunication and telecommunication.In his lecture president and CEO of Magyar Telekom, Christopher Mattheisen stated that as its priority objectives the company wishes to respond to changes in customer requirements and market challenges flexibly and in a timely manner, and capitalise on new, innovative service provision and business opportunities in addition to increasing its competitive edge.Thus with the establishment of T-Systems Hungary and through the services provided by it, Magyar Telekom will enhance the competitiveness and improve the efficiency of large Hungarian companies and public sector operation. Strongly committed to Hungary but supported by an international background, Magyar Telekom and T-Systems Hungary make considerable contributions to the country’s economic growth simultaneously creating high added-value jobs, Christopher Mattheisen added.

In his lecture the CEO of T-Systems Hungary, Róbert Budafoki outlined the strategic directions of the new, integrated company.The long-term corporate strategy focuses on the preservation of values, in other words, the existing expertise and customer basis, which gives the foundation of four strategic pillars. The first pillar is the positioning of the company as a partner in transformation, as in addition to performing system integration the company may have a major impact on the strategic operation of the particular customer, since it is capable of preparing the customer for the future challenges and thus play a central role in ensuring competitiveness. The second pillar is the provision of integrated solutions and synergies. The third one is the “ICT as a service” approach, which considers, among others, outsourcing solutions and cloud service as regular services.In relation to the latter, Róbert Budafoki made it clear that starting from December 2012 T-Systems Hungary would launch its own large corporate cloud service. The fourth pillar is the international reference system represented, on the one hand, by Telekom, a company that is able to offer a secure professional background, and T-Systems Hungary’s openness to a regional role.

In his address, vice-president for research of IDC, Steve Frantzen gave an outlook for the next decade in the infocommunication sector. He suggested that as the most important elements in the future ICT were the cloud, mobility, social business and big data, future corporate managers must adjust to these challenges. Steven Frantzen added: the next generation corporate executives will no longer have specific technical knowledge, as the guarantee of success will lie in the person’s appropriate integration capacity.
