IBM and SinnLeffers in 5-Year, 8 Million Euro IT Services Contract
IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced a 5-year, 8 million euro IT services contract with German retailer SinnLeffers GmbH under which IBM will provide a range of IT infrastructure services to help the company to maintain its leadership in the market. SinnLeffers is one of the biggest German retailers in the textile industry with 47 fashion stores in Germany and annual revenues of EUR 500M.
SinnLeffers required a flexible IT-infrastructure solution to be able to respond quickly to the changing demands in the market. The company chose IBM to host all their IT systems at a high availability IBM data centre. The aim is to help SinnLeffers prepare for future growth in the German market and meet the company’s IT challenges.
“Within the repositioning of SinnLeffers, we are focusing on our core business and therefore handing over the IT infrastructure services to IBM. The IBM solution provides best services for all our locations with high availability,” explains Patrick Feller, CEO of SinnLeffers.
“SinnLeffers manages massive amounts of financial data,” says Michael Diemer, General Manager of IBM Global Technology Services in Germany. “IBM’s data center solution provides SinnLeffers with continuous access to their critical information assets and keeps this data safe inside industry-leading facilities designed to withstand the most extreme elements both natural and manmade.”
The data for SinnLeffers’ environment will be hosted at one of IBM’s data center, which is part of world’s largest commercial technology infrastructure with more than 8 million square feet of data centers on six continents supporting 2.3 million corporate users and billions more end users accessing everything from retail and banking applications to government systems. SinnLeffers will benefit from the latest technology while being able to concentrate on their core business.
The contract was signed in April 2007.
