June 6, 2003 - Steria, a leading European provider of Managed Services is further consolidating its market position by bringing together its twelve European data centers into a single entity, “The Steria European Delivery Center". This move will further enhance the Group’s delivery capabilities providing the European market with one of the most efficient IT hosting and production services in Europe.
All the production methods linked to the outsourced managed services contracts handled by Steria's 10 European subsidiaries will be brought together in this new entity.
This move ties in with the Europe-wide setting up of performance indicators with commitment to results (SLA), total cost control and technology watch in a bid to optimise service to its customers.
François Enaud, chairman and CEO of Steria said: "Last year Steria became acknowledged as one of Europe’s leaders in IT services. The creation of The Steria European Delivery Center is further evidence of Steria's investment in ensuring best in class service delivery to our European customer base. It is also our first pan-European operational unit, testament to the success of the Integris Europe acquisition operation."
Over 500 people are now part of the delivery center, providing multi vendor services on a large number of platforms including IBM, Bull, ICL and Unix-NT. This new initiative will ensure Steria's customers enjoy a comprehensive optimised, streamlined and industrialised service with commitment to results. A service that has already been chosen by key clients such as Lloyd's of London , Honeywell, Norwegian Customs Authorities, the French Post and Saint Louis Sucre, to name but a few.
