IBM signs IS infrastructure deal with ABB

Includes server and network management and help desk services

By CBR Staff Writer

ABB, a power and automation technology group, and IBM have signed an agreement to transform ABB’s information systems (IS) infrastructure across 17 countries in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.

Under the agreement, IBM will provide server and network management and help desk services for majority of ABB’s IS infrastructure operations. ABB is expected to benefit further from IS infrastructure and the new infrastructure offering positions ABB to take advantage of cloud computing in the future to reduce costs and increase the speed of IS resource provisioning.

The agreement is expected to enhance ABB’s IS energy efficiency, reducing carbon emissions by 9,000 tons annually through consolidation and virtualisation of ABB’s servers and storage.

Mike Daniels, senior vice president and general manager of global technology services, IBM, said: “This agreement further demonstrates IBM’s commitment to deliver to the highest quality services and the most advanced technologies which help our clients to transform their businesses.

“IBM’s green technologies are helping leading businesses like ABB to become more efficient in their energy consumption, not only in their data centres, but across all of their operations.”
