Collaborate to Innovate

Our partner ecosystem

Together we create more possibilities

Bringing you more choice through our partner ecosystem
Like people, organisations rarely achieve great things alone. They need people with experience to help them reach their goals. People with specialist expertise to identify and fine tune the details. People who can challenge them to push the boundaries of their capabilities. They need teams. And they need partners.

At BT we have built strong, strategic partnerships because we recognise that proactive partnerships are the future of the IT industry and the cloud. Collaboration with other organisations can be crucial for our customers. By working with others we can achieve more than we believe to be possible - more than we could on our own and bring you more of the services  you need.

BT’s partnerships allow us to provide the solutions you require, delivering end-to-end service without the headache of having to deal with multiple suppliers and budgets. By working with other companies we take away the complexity of the cloud so you can work with one supplier while we work with our partners to create even more possibilities for you.
