re: AlcaLu, HP Combine on IT


With that HP<->ALU JV and regard to the combined IT-service for both companies now ("The move, in which HP will be "entrusted with a large part of Alcatel-Lucent’s IT operations," should see AlcaLu "migrate more quickly to advanced IT infrastructure and services that deliver higher performance and greater efficiency,")


1022 employees worldwide will be outsourced to Hewlett Packard. The country breakdown:

<ul class="simple">
<li>F: 206,</li>
<li>D: 114,</li>
<li>USA 497,</li>
<li>Benelux: 18.</li>
</ul>

There are also some more outsourcings due to "mature product outsourcing" (591 worldwide) and some Payroll/Shared Service Center staff (around 630).


&nbsp;


The IT-supply on the ALU-sites is already beyond sh*t (due to layoffs, outsourtcings and extremely cheap wages for the few IT-helpguys). Hopefully this will get better now, but well...


And I presume that after a HP=&gt;Dell=&gt;Lenovo-chain in IT-equipment replacing, there will be the next "exchange"-nightmare towards HP-equipment...

re: AlcaLu, HP Combine on IT
The only real meat here is HP gets to run ALU's IT infrastructure, BFD, it can't get any worse. The rest is marketing hype. See if ALU or HP report earnings from this relationship. It's just marketing noise.....

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
