Leading IPTV business channel MeetTheBoss TV, a business unit of GDS International, and Germany's largest IT Services company T-Systems are to undertake a unique broadcast series focused on IT Transformation on March 21st, 2013.

A virtual business TV channel with a global membership base exceeding 107,000 senior-level executives across a spectrum of mature industries and job functions - from CEOs, CIOs, CFOs, CMOs, and COOs to SVPs, VPs, Directors and Business Unit Heads - MeetTheBoss TV provides a unique value proposition, allowing its members to become part of the conversation through a combination of public-facing broadcasts and private, knowledge-sharing virtual roundtables.

Post-broadcast, the German IT Services giant will work with MeetTheBoss TV to identify 10 of the channel's most applicable CIO members looking to build their own Transformation Plan, and formally invite them to sit in on two, ninety-minute roundtables led by T-Systems and moderated by MeetTheBoss TV's Editor-In-Chief, Adam Burns, to enable a balanced conversation and encourage knowledge-sharing on a range of pre-defined topics.

T-Systems manage multi-sourcing contracts for Deutsche Telekom's corporate customers such as Shell, Daimler and Old Mutual, and hold responsibility for overseeing voice and data communication infrastructures as part of a wider transformation strategy.
