Everything Everywhere has cut a deal to outsource Orange’s IT operations to T-Systems.
The seven year deal, estimated to be worth around £700m, will see around 220 Orange IT staff transfer to outsourcing giant T-Systems.
The deal follows a similar outsourcing of IT work at T-Mobile last year, with around 100 staff transferred to T-Systems.
Under the new contract the staff transferred will remain in their existing offices at Everything Everywhere with all their terms and conditions intact.
An Everything Everywhere spokesman said no redundancies would result from the deal.
T-Systems is part of Deutsche Telecom which is a parent company of Everything Everywhere along with France Telecom.
In a statement the operator said: ‘Everything Everywhere is planning to outsource some of its IT services to T-Systems, in a new seven-year outsourcing contract.
'The contract covers delivery of desktop services, datacentre operations and infrastructure management, IT applications support and ITIL support processes.
'The contract sets out a path for migrating 40% of Everything Everywhere’s IT estate onto T-Systems’ dynamic platform within three years. As a result of the new agreement, around 220 staff will be transferring from Everything Everywhere to T-Systems.’
