T-Systems Sovereign Cloud, powered by Google Cloud, acquires GovMarket as a customer since it has migrated its operations. After Lengoo, MindDoc and ENIO, the Berlin start-up GovMarket is now also migrating to the Sovereign Cloud from T-Systems, powered by Google Cloud. This makes GovMarket a new customer of T-System’s and Google Cloud’s joint platform.

The Sovereign Cloud offers controls and compliance with European data protection, guaranteed by T-Systems. It also provides the scalability and innovative potential of Google’s public cloud to bring digital providers together with public administration.

Through the trusted collaboration with Google Cloud and T-Systems, GovMarket is shaping a secure and innovative future for public entities by building a sustainable ecosystem for government technologies. Together, Google Cloud and T-Systems set new standards for digital collaboration between suppliers and public administrations.

“The public sector constitutes a key focus industry for T-Systems,” explains Deutsche Telekom board member and T-Systems chief executive Adel Al-Saleh. “Bringing GovMarket onto our unique, sovereign cloud platform is an important step towards our vision of a fully digitalized public sector.”

The joint T-Systems and Google Cloud offering is being continuously expanded. T- Systems takes responsibility for a range of operational measures and control mechanisms to maintain sovereignty. These include encryption and identity management. In addition, T-Systems will control relevant parts of the German Google Cloud infrastructure. Any physical or virtual access to facilities in Germany, such as routine maintenance and upgrades, will be under the joint supervision of T-Systems and Google Cloud.
