Government of Catalonia Agency Awards HP $40 Million Contract for Applications Services
BARCELONA, March 27, 2013 — HP Enterprise Services Spain today announced that Generalitat de Catalunya (CTTI), an institution of the Government of Catalonia, has signed an agreement valued at $40 million for HP to modernize the organization's applications environments, supporting economic growth in the region.
Under the terms of the six-year agreement, HP will provide applications services that will help the Government of Catalonia improve efficiency and productivity, transforming the way the organization delivers, manages and evaluates its applications. With a modernized applications environment, CTTI will have a technology infrastructure that is more flexible and able to adapt to current trends while increasing quality of services.
HP will use its Transformation and Integration Services and Applications Management Services to optimize and manage the CTTI applications. CTTI employees use these applications every day to manage contracts and other business as well as access portals and oversee web content. As a result, CTTI expects to better align the applications portfolio to the government's priorities with the potential to reduce its expenses.
HP will provide these services from its facilities in Spain. VASS, an IT consultancy specializing in new technologies, and product and service integration, will assist HP in delivering these services.
"Governments worldwide are challenged to provide more services to a growing number of people with fewer resources," said Enrique Solbes, general manager, Enterprise Services Iberia, HP. "The HP team will build on our long relationship with CTTI to modernize its technology environment using best practices in applications management so that the organization can achieve its goals and be more cost effective."HP Discover, takes place June 11-13 in Las Vegas.
