To improve performance and quality levels of key application support services

By CBR Staff Writer

HP Enterprise Services said that Optus, an Australia-based telecommunications company, has signed a three-year agreement to improve the performance and quality levels of key application support services.

Under the agreement, HP will provide applications management for a number of applications including customer billing, data warehouse and other systems. Outsourcing these applications to HP is expected to help Optus improve applications performance and quality.

Lawrie Turner, chief information officer of Optus, said: “By streamlining our applications environment, we expect to achieve significant service level and operational improvements across our IT portfolio, which will result in a better experience overall for our customers.

“The new agreement represents a significant commitment in our relationship with HP. We selected HP for its operational capability, flexibility, security compliance and experience in managing complex transitions.”

Combining HP’s deep telecommunications and applications expertise with global Best Shore delivery capabilities will help Optus to improve application quality and achieve cost savings.”
