Daimler To Transfer Automotive IT Infrastructure Operations To Infosys


Infosys Ltd. said it has formed a long-term partnership with Daimler AG for a technology-driven information technology infrastructure transformation.

After the receipt of all regulatory approvals, Daimler will transform its IT operating model and infrastructure landscape across workplace services, service desk, data center, networks and SAP basis together with Infosys, a statement said.

"As a part of this partnership, automotive IT infrastructure experts based out of Germany, wider Europe, the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific region will transition from Daimler to Infosys," it added.

The companies, however, did not disclose the number of people who will transition as part of the deal.

"Infosys is well placed to realise this transition as an expert having integrated more than 16,000 employees through other partnerships in recent years with a high acceptance, retention and satisfaction rate," it said.
