Bayer Business Services awards IT outsourcing contract to Atos
BERLIN -- Atos, an international IT services company, has signed a global seven year contract with Bayer Business Services GmbH, the global competence center of the Bayer Group for IT and business services.
“Our possibilities to reach economies of scale are limited and the internal costs are too high, thus we decided to outsource particular services like end-user support and helpdesk support in Germany to an established IT service provider”, said Daniel Hartert, CIO of the Bayer group and CEO of Bayer Business Services. “I am convinced that Atos is the right partner for us.”
Atos will take over full management of the defined IT services from Bayer Business Services from April 2012.
“This is a major deal for Atos in Germany, consolidating our position as a top three IT services player in the German market,” said Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO of Atos. “Our business technologists have the industry expertise and experience to drive innovation that will enable Bayer Business Services to optimise its IT-infrastructure and ensure it meets the business requirements of the Bayer Group today and tomorrow.”
In Germany Atos has 10.000 employees and is the biggest business unit by revenue within the Atos group. Atos is the leading provider of professional services to manufacturing and natural resources in Western Europe, and a major player worldwide.
