New Siemens IT Operations Center in China enhances global IT support
Munich, Germany, With the opening of its new IT Operations Center in Chengdu, China, Siemens IT Solutions and Services continues to expand its service offerings in the area of IT outsourcing. The center enables Siemens to provide an even wider spectrum of IT support services across multiple time zones for Asian and other international customers. In the first phase, the new center will house roughly 100 specialists by the end of 2010. They deliver IT support for desktops, servers and networks as well as for software and systems engineering, along with service desk support in several languages including English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. The investment volume amounts to roughly €3.5 million.
“The new center in Chengdu will play an important part in our global IT service delivery network and provide Siemens IT Solutions and Services with better access to global projects,” said Robert Demann, head of Siemens IT Solutions and Services in China. Together with the company’s existing facilities in Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing, the new center further improves the company’s availability of resources at strategically relevant locations in China. The IT Operations Center will also support locations of Siemens IT Solutions and Services in other parts of Asia - such as Mumbai, Manila and Singapore - in all aspects related to its Managed Workplace offering.
