Ericsson Extends IT Outsourcing Contracts with HP, IBM

Ericsson has signed a five-year IT outsourcing contract with HP including infrastructure services, application hosting platform, helpdesk, desktop support and output services for Ericsson. The new contract is an extension of a contract signed in 2003 and which ends in fall 2008.


Carl-Magnus MÃ¥nsson, CIO and Head of Group IT at Ericsson, says: "We gain significant benefits by outsourcing our IT operations. It helps lower overall IT spending, reduces total cost of ownership and makes our IS/IT structure more efficient. It also ensures we are flexible and able to adapt to changing IT demands. Our supplier has demonstrated it is the best-in-class provider and we are pleased to enter this long-term partnership."


Separately, Ericsson signed a five-year IT outsourcing contract with IBM including application maintenance and development for Ericsson.
The new contract is also an extension of a contract signed in 2003. The responsibility for Ericsson's internal, global, corporate voice and data network is not included in the outsourcing contract. This will be managed by Ericsson's business unit Global Services, who will also handle delivery of some business-critical applications and infrastructure services from its own Global Service Delivery Center.http://www.ericsson.com
