Atos Origin signs 10-year contract with Brakes

To manage its IT infrastructure and applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Atos Origin, an IT services company, has signed a 10-year contract worth more than £50m with Brakes Group, a supplier to the food sector in the UK, Ireland and France.

The new contract builds on the longstanding partnership with Brakes and Atos Origin to extend the IT contract originally signed in 2003. It will enable Brakes to make better use of new technologies, such as virtualisation and cloud computing in order to continue to support its growing business.

Under the new contract, Atos Origin will manage all of Brakes IT infrastructure and applications including servers, service desks and its SAP business support systems for HR, finance and supply chain.

Matthew Fearn, Group CFO of Brakes, said: “As our IT partner, we need Atos Origin to play a critical role in supporting and enabling our business growth as we expand into new markets. We are hoping that by stepping up Atos Origin’s management of our IT, we can focus on delivering great food to our customers.”
