TietoEnator signs major telecom agreement with Siemens IT Solutions and Services in Italy
TietoEnator has signed a major agreement with Siemens IT Solutions and Services regarding the streamlining of business critical and customer-related processes and services for mobile telephony (Mobile Business Support Systems Application Operation services). This is the extension of an agreement TietoEnator signed with Siemens in July 2006. The value of the contract is estimated to MEUR 40 and the contract period of the new agreement is three years. The agreement strengthens TietoEnator’s presence in Italy and its position as a leading supplier of services to the telecom industry.
Ari Vanhanen, Head of TietoEnator Telecom & Media, said: “This is a strategic breakthrough for us on a relatively new market. An agreement of this magnitude strengthens our European presence and gives us a stronghold in Italy. Our cooperation with Siemens is very important to us and together we will be able to add significant value in the customer’s business critical processes”.
TietoEnator will be responsible for maintenance of core processes for mobile telephony. The common goal is to reduce the cost of operation and support, and at the same time fulfil customer demands for qualified services. Cost-reduction is achieved partly by streamlining the core processes, and partly by coordinating a large number of sub-suppliers on Siemens behalf.
TietoEnator’s business area Telecom & Media has a broad service portfolio that covers R&D services, consulting, IT system development and integration for the telecom and media industry. The company operates in close partnership with its global customers, assisting them in the development of their products and business processes.
