Capgemini and TDC Services have signed a 3-year strategic agreement
Copenhagen, June 10, 2005 - The agreement stipulates TDC Services A/S to cut down on number of consultancy firms and allocate a considerable amount of work with Capgemini, who will deliver it-development and maintenance resources to TDC Services over a 3-year period.
The agreement includes using Capgemini’s Rightshore™ concept, which means tasks will be handled where they can be produces most efficiently. Parts of the system development and maintenance will hence be provided by Capgemini’s international centers in France and India. The Rightshore™ concept hence serves its two main purposes; securing TDC services a more flexible delivery operation as well as an attractive cost level for its it-support. Capgemini Denmark has over many years delivered it- and consultancy services to TDC, and this agreement not only strengthens a long-lasting corporate relationship but forms a strategic co-operation between the to companies. “We keep developing new and better communication solutions for our customers. That’s why it is critical that our strategic partners can utilize their capacity, knowledge and networks and thereby deliver the right resources at the right price to us”. Just the constellation Capgemini offers, says CEO Klaus Pedersen, TDC Services A/S. Telecoms is one of the sectors where Capgemini has its strongest presence, in Denmark as well as globally, and Capgemini has established an international network of innovation- and competence centers to secure that the accumulated knowledge and experience of Telecom can be used and re-used by the entire corporation. Through these centers Capgemini contributes to operations- and it-development at many of the leading Telco operators in the world.
