Valora inks ICT deal with T-Systems

Involves upgrade of the entire information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure

By CBR Staff Writer

The trading company Valora has awarded a contract to Switzerland-based information and communication technology (ICT) systems provider T-Systems to operate its data centres and ICT infrastructure.

Under the deal, the Deutsche Telekom unit, T-System will implement a uniform offering transnationally which will help reduce costs and offer an efficient infrastructure platform to support the growth strategy of Valora.

The outsourcing contract is for eight years and involves modernising the entire ICT infrastructure including all servers, networks, end user devices and the helpdesk.

The deal also includes centralising the infrastructure of all of Valora’s European data centres, which include sites in Austria, Germany, Luxemburg and Scandinavia.

The central application management within the competence centre for the different business platforms will be run using Valora’s own resources.

Valora said the contract will lead to savings and transparency in ICT costs as well as an increase in the efficiency of its planning and control.
