Royal DSM has signed a five-year contract with Orange Business Services for global wide area network (WAN) services, connecting DSM’s 180 offices, data centres and production facilities in 50 countries all over the world.
In addition, DSM granted Orange Business Services the status of A-supplier for the next six months, a status that is only applicable to high-performing ICT suppliers to DSM. Orange Business Services has been providing DSM with global WAN services since 2005.
Aloys Kregting, CIO of DSM, said: “We are acting in a quickly evolving business, with a continuous need to innovate, become more agile and reduce our time to market. One of the trends fueling DSM’s strategy is continued growth in emerging markets, especially in China and India.
“DSM’s ICT department needs to enable this growth in a flexible way, and Orange can support us to do so. DSM ICT supports the sustainability agenda of DSM in the most optimal way. The reliable network that Orange Business Services delivers helps us to contribute to this.”
