Downer signs IT services agreement with HP

(PR.co.nz) Downer EDI Limited (Downer) announced today it had signed an IT Managed Services Agreement with Hewlett Packard (HP) to provide Downer with all its IT infrastructure needs over the next six years.

The Chief Executive Officer of Downer, Grant Fenn, said the agreement was signed after a rigorous tender process and would transform Downer’s IT infrastructure.

“This agreement is a key enabler for the business going forward,” Mr Fenn said. “Downer currently has eight data centres, five data networks, 36 operating systems and a number of email systems.

“Under this agreement with HP, we will move from the current fragmented and inefficient model to a single data centre, operating system and network.

“This will reduce risk, improve performance and provide high quality support for our growing business needs. It will enable common systems and processes which support a single face to our customers and deliver cost savings as part of our Fit 4 Business program.

“This initiative is in line with Downer’s strategy to simplify, consolidate and enable our business.”

Mr Fenn said there would be a four month transition period before Downer formally hands over to HP.
