HCL Technologies (HCL) announced a large contract with New Zealand dairy co-operative Fonterra to modernise and manage the technology infrastructure.
The partnership with HCL Technologies will consolidate Fonterra’s technology suppliers and bring together the Co-op’s IT infrastructure services under one umbrella. The technology edge services provided by HCL will enhance Fonterra’s employee experience, to navigate through their business operations.
This partnership will extend HCL’s New Zealand presence to three offices within the country and will bring around 60 new jobs to the Waikato region, as the local support services for Fonterra employees will be based at its Hamilton Delivery centre.
Piers Shore, chief information officer at Fonterra, said: “This partnership will enable us to improve our cyber security framework and strengthen our critical IT foundation. We are consolidating external IT suppliers and we expect to make significant savings relative to our existing infrastructure IT spend.”
