Orange and T-Mobile UK operation outsources its IT to T-Systems

I was told that the T-Mobile and Orange joint venture in the UK known as Everything Everywhere has outsourced its IT to T-Systems.

The deal could be worth about £700m and will see a couple of hundred Everything Everywhere staff move to T-Systems.

T-Systems already provided IT services to T-Mobile, which is also owned by Deutsche Telekom but the Orange UK IT infrastructure, which is done in-house, is said to be twice as bog as its T-Mobile equivalent.

The deal is said to include datacenter services, computing services for about 16,000 staff. It will also see a lot of IT move into the cloud.

A source told me that before Orange and T-Mobile formed Everything Everywhere Orange was about to outsource its IT to HP.
