Systems Solutions



High-profile DT networks executive Axel Clauberg (left) left T‑Sys, where he was VP of Strategic Portfolio Management & Chief Technology Officer (CTO). He has moved to key Group rival Amazon Web Services as Solutions Architect Leader for Germany.

Clauberg is most prominent in the industry as Chairman of the Facebook-backed Telecom Infra Project (TIP). It is understood that he has stepped down from that role, too, and that a new TIP Chairman will be announced in the coming weeks. For DT, Clauberg’s seat on the TIP board will be filled by Abdurazak Mudesir, SVP for Technology Innovation& Architecture.

While offering Clauberg an exciting change of scene, his move could also be linked to the recent transfer of T‑Sys’ Telecommunications Services business to TDE (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #86 and #89). Clauberg was ostensibly drafted into T‑Sys to reshape its enterprise networking portfolio and partnerships, but the shift to TDE’s management may bring a further revamp.
