E.ON Signs IT Outsourcing Services Agreement with HP to Create Flexible Infrastructure in Support of Company Growth
Hewlett-Packard GmbH and E.ON IT GmbH, the IT and telecommunications provider for Europe’s utilities company E.ON AG, today announced they have signed a five year $1.4 billion infrastructure technology outsourcing services contract. As one of the first major European utilities to outsource its technology infrastructure, E.ON chose HP for data centre operations and workplace services to support its global growth by strengthening its competitiveness and creating a more flexible, agile technology environment.
“E.ON demands consistent, innovative and agile IT services to operate in a competitive global industry. We expect our sourcing approach with HP and our other key suppliers to deliver significant value to our businesses,” said Edgar Aschenbrenner, chief information officer, E.ON. “HP has a proven experience in large scale IT outsourcing and a global presence. We have asked them to apply their broad experience and innovation capabilities and to act as operational integrator toward our other key partners.”
HP is helping E.ON become an Instant-On Enterprise, by embedding technology in every layer of its business to better serve customers, employees, and partners with whatever they need, instantly. HP will work with E.ON IT to lower E.ON’s technology investment by creating a consistent, optimized and cost-effective technology infrastructure for the E.ON Group.
“Utility companies need to remain stable and deliver excellent client satisfaction while adapting quickly to changing regulations and energy sources in the coming years,” said Jan Zadak, senior vice president, HP Enterprise Business, EMEA. “HP’s experience in managing complex outsourcing engagements, leading the management of multi-supplier environments, will enable E.ON to focus on delivering better business results and drive growth.”
Under the terms of the agreement, HP will directly manage the data center services and workplace services for more than 80,000 employees. To reduce management complexity for E.ON, HP will also act as operational integrator, collaborating closely with E.ON’s other key IT suppliers. As a result, more than 1,100 employees will transfer to HP in April 2011.
HP currently supplies technology equipment, support services and managed print services for E.ON. The contract signature concludes E.ON’s ITO tender process which awarded 2 of 3 lots to HP.
