E.ON makes it official with T-Systems and HP

German utility giant E.ON has made its outsourcing deals with HP and T-Systems public.

As revealed in the blog almost a month ago the company has outsourced its datacenters and desktops to HP, with its network going to fellow German T-Systems.

The deals are said to be worth €3.2bn.

A well connected source told me that HP has paid well over the odds to acquire the assets from E.ON that it is going to take over.

As part of the deal HP has acquired datacenter and computing assets from E.ON. A source close to the deal said HP has paid about 25% over the odds for the assets.
