Evry Ibm Outsourcing Agreement

Evry, a Norwegian IT provider, has signed a $1 billion IT outsourcing contract with IBM as part of an ongoing business transformation project, in which 600 employees will switch to the supplier. TietoEVRY outsourced some infrastructure transactions to IBM, which led the agreement to arbitration in June, leading to a refund of the disputed TietoEVRY payments in October. “It`s no big surprise, because IBM signed an agreement with Evry a few years ago on mainframe services and some software,” said Rolf Frydenberg, CEO of Manag-E and spokesperson for the Nordic Summit of the Cloud Security Alliance. The agreement must be short-term performance neutral (EBIT) from TietoEVRY and allow for further improvement in performance in the cloud – below. The new agreement will enter into force on 1 June 2020 and the transition is expected to be completed in 2020 and early 2021. Under the new agreement, TietoEVRY and IBM do not have a conciliation communication. In a statement, EL-IT said: “Evry sambition is the leader in the development and operation of computer systems in the Nordic region. The union believes that achieving this goal requires an in-depth knowledge of the development needs of customers. Evry loses this knowledge due to the outsourcing of 332 employees affected by the new agreement. ” © Copyright IBM Corporation 2017.
