SC has signed a five-year IT-operations outsourcing agreement with mobile operators Telenor Sweden.
To virtualise and modernise Telenor Sweden’s IT operations CSC will implement its on-premise private cloud offering, BizCloud. With BizCloud Telenor is benefitted from the agility and commercial flexibility of the cloud.
Under the agreement some Telenor employees will be transferred to CSC. The transfer process will be completed by January 2012, when CSC assumes full responsibility for delivery of secure, scalable and simplified services for Telenor.
CSC BizCloud is billed as a service from a standard rate card and it is built on the cloud fabric Vblock from VCE Company, a fully integrated offer featuring the VMware hypervisor, Cisco network and compute and EMC storage.
Telenor Sweden chief IS/IT and operations officer Martin Petersén said CSC has clearly demonstrated its capacity to deliver offerings that will contribute to both Telenor’s operations and overall objectives.
"We expect that CSC’s effort to modernize our entire server infrastructure will benefit both our customers and internal processes," said Petersén.
CSC Technology & Consumer Group president Mary Jo Morris said CSC is delighted that Telenor Sweden selected CSC as their partner in this strategic initiative and that Telenor recognise the unique value proposition CSC offer for cloud services.
"This new contract underpins our firm commitment to Telenor Sweden’s long-term success, and strengthens our position within the Telco industry," said Morris.
