HP Recognizes Telefónica with 2011 Technology Services Customer Achievement Award

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At its Technology Services Leadership Summit, HP today named Telefónica S.A. the 2011 Technology Services Customer of the Year for successfully using HP expertise over the past year to drive its business forward.

HP has been collaborating with Telefónica, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, for more than 30 years.

Over the past seven years, Telefónica has expanded its relationship with HP from basic reactive services to multivendor support and infrastructure consulting. HP recently initiated an effort to help Telefónica migrate individual email platforms from multiple countries to one centralized global email platform, providing greater flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

“As a leader in the telecommunications sector, Telefónica’s business depends on a reliable technology infrastructure that is flexible enough to meet demands in the future,” said Joaquín Castaño Gómez, director, Global Infrastructure and Workplace Services, Telefónica. “By collaborating with HP, not only do we receive excellent technology support, but we also gain a trusted advisor who understands our business and helps us meet ever-changing needs.”

Telefónica was selected by a panel of experts that evaluated the complexity of services, innovation strategy and collaboration with HP Technology Services in 2011. Telefónica’s willingness to partner with HP to develop strategy and proactively resolve issues set the company apart from the other nominees. This partner relationship is the model that both companies strive for and is a leading example in the industry.

“To maximize technology investments, clients need a partner who can support IT solutions and help plan for the organization’s future,” said Antonio Neri, senior vice president and general manager, Technology Services, HP. “By working closely with HP Technology Services, Telefónica receives personalized technology consulting and support to help expand its global business.”

HP services help business and governments in their pursuit of an Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.
