Deutsche Telekom (DT) has decided to seek a partner for the international expansion of its IT unit rather than invest directly in new operations.

The business model of T-Systems International is "relatively stable compared with that of its competitors", said Kai-Uwe Ricke, DT's newly appointed chief executive officer. He added, however, the unit required "an international dimension" to deliver both IT and telecommunication services to large enterprise customers.

"The financial situation of Deutsche Telekom, however, means that it is not possible for us to expand internationally in both areas on our own," Ricke said. "We are, therefore, prepared to work with partners to expand our IT service activities."

The IT services arm consists largely of the former Debis Systemhaus, which DT acquired from car manufacturer DaimlerChrysler. In addition to IT services, T-Systems manages DT's global communications network.
