- Cloud Computing helps Everything Everywhere to achieve business plan.
- Dynamic Platform offers innovative customer services.
Around 200 IT staff and contractors from the ‘Orange’ side of UK mobile operator, Everything Everywhere, transfer to T-Systems today. The majority of these employees are based in Bristol with others based in Hatfield, Darlington, and Leeds and they will all remain in their current locations. The transfer is the result of a seven-year outsourcing contract signed on March 2011, that sees 40 per cent of Everything Everywhere’s IT estate migrate onto T-Systems’ dynamic service platform within three years, starting from 1 July 2011.
Fotis Karonis, CIO, Everything Everywhere, said: “The move to cloud computing will accelerate the transformation of Everything Everywhere’s IT capability, enabling it to flex its IT requirements up and down in line with business volumes. Outsourcing will bring Everything Everywhere closer to realising its business plan, and also create a platform for offering innovative services to our customers moving forward.”
Sam Kingston, Managing Director, T-Systems, said: “This is the dawn of new relationship between two customer centric organisations. T-Systems will play a critically important role in delivering cloud computing capabilities to meet Everything Everywhere’s challenging Information and Technology requirements. The contract enables a solid foundation for Everything Everywhere to continue to serve their customers with an attractive portfolio of services in a very dynamic marketplace.
T-Systems has strong experience and integration expertise for private cloud services in Europe, based on having offered cloud computing services as its Dynamic Services offering since 2004. More than 500 customers already use these services and some of them have been doing so for as long as seven years.
