Under the deal announced today, Nokia is hiring HP to provide IT services that up until now had been carried out by Nokia's own staff. About 260 Nokia workers will become HP employees under the contract, which is expected to cut IT costs for Nokia by about 25%.
Four of the Nokia operations centres are in Finland, where Nokia is based, while the others are in China, Singapore and Texas.
HP will manage about 3,000 servers for Nokia, including hardware that runs messaging, groupware, file and print sharing, and other in-house LAN services, according to a spokesperson.
