HP and Daimler Sign Infrastructure Services Agreement
HP announced that Daimler AG, one of the world’s leading automotive companies, has selected HP infrastructure services to help increase the flexibility, speed and cost-efficiency of its financial services, sales and dealer organizations in Germany.
The automotive company is consolidating and standardizing its global IT system landscape with the goal of reducing the number of existing systems. As part of this effort, HP Data Center Services and Workplace Services were chosen to support streamlining the IT landscape of the financial services, sales and dealer organizations in Germany. Key services delivered by HP are the operation of the datacenter and workplace environments.
As part of the agreement, HP will consolidate several datacenters into one, reducing the number of physical servers through virtualization. HP will also consolidate support and management processes for the IT infrastructure landscape of Daimler’s German financial services, sales and dealer organizations both on-site and from near-shore locations.
