By CBR Staff Writer

HP has signed a seven-year infrastructure services contract to reduce operating costs, improve flexibility and accelerate business growth for Celesio, a German pharmaceutical distribution company.

Under the agreement, HP will provide standardized services and hardware across Celesio’s 14-country operation. This includes managing Celesio’s data center environment, including storage and server management for approximately 4,500 servers.

Additionally, HP will manage a full range of network and voice services that connect Celesio’s employees with each other, partners, customers and vendors. HP also will standardize and manage Celesio’s employee computing environment, which includes global helpdesk, end-user support, incident and problem management, as well as asset and change management for 23,000 workplaces in more than 100 locations.

HP also will implement HP servers, storage and PCs. Under the terms of the agreement, approximately 200 employees are expected to transfer from Celesio to HP.

Christian Holzherr, CFO and management board member responsible for IT at Celesio, said: A standardized technology infrastructure is critical since we operate in several European markets and cover the entire spectrum of pharmaceutical distribution. HP will help us achieve more integrated business processes and efficiency improvements company-wide. HP’s proven business technology and industry expertise makes it the ideal partner to help us meet our business goals.
