Philips to rely on IT technology from T-Systems. The Telekom subsidiary will provide services for Philips via a ‘private cloud’
The outsourcing contract is part of a global program in which the electronics corporation is consolidating and modernizing its IT infrastructure with the aim of achieving lasting cost reductions. As of January 1, 2010, T-Systems will assume responsibility for the infrastructure of Philips' data centers. Among the centers are locations in the U.S. and the Netherlands, as well as centers in Germany, in other European countries and in South America and Asia. In connection with the outsourcing contract, some 185 of the company's staff will move to T-Systems.
SAP services tailored to requirements
T-Systems will provide SAP services for Philips via a "private cloud", a separate, secure network. In future, Philips will receive all – and precisely – the data center services it requires via the network and from T-Systems’ global data centers. "This way, we can draw on resources dynamically, as necessary, while paying only for the computer and storage resources we actually use. That will enhance our flexibility and lower our costs," notes Maarten de Vries, Chief Information Officer (CIO) of Philips. "I am delighted that in T-Systems we have found a strong partner which thoroughly understands this innovative technology and which can serve us worldwide."
The contract with Philips is the third –following contracts with Shell and Heineken – that T-Systems has landed in rapid succession with global corporations based in the Netherlands. "The contract is another important milestone in our international growth strategy. And it confirms that we, as a European services provider, are the number one choice for globally operating corporations based in Europe", notes Reinhard Clemens, Member of the Deutsche Telekom Board of Management and CEO of T-Systems.
