iGATE has signed a new five-year contract with Orange Communications to transform the telecom provider’s IT infrastructure and rationalize its vendor landscape in Switzerland.
“Beyond demonstrating their depth and IP-led capability, iGATE showed that they understood our business requirements and responded with flexibility and innovation,” said Johan Hall, chief technology officer of Orange Switzerland.
The IT deal represents a significant win for iGATE as it reinforces its position in the European telecom sector.
iGATE will take responsibility for transforming and managing all enterprise systems, including ERP, Business Intelligence, Infrastructure and Data Network & Telephony services.
“Backed by our business model and global delivery capabilities, we look forward to partnering with Orange Switzerland to support and transform the way it serves its customers and manages its operations,” said Derek Kemp, head of Europe & Australia, iGATE.
iGATE will also provide Infrastructure as a Service for Orange Switzerland and specific partners – as well as a multilingual service desk to monitor and report all vendor performance metrics. The data centre is operated through Equinix in Zurich where iGATE also has contracts with other Swiss companies from the finance and insurance sectors.
