EDS to provide IT infrastructure services to Bristol-Myers Squibb for seven years

Electronic Data Systems : 11 December, 2007  (New Product)
EDS has been selected to deliver IT infrastructure services to Bristol-Myers Squibb as part of a seven-year, $715 million information technology (IT) services contract.
'Leveraging EDS' expertise, scope and scale will allow the company to improve productivity so Bristol-Myers Squibb can remain focused on what it does best -- help patients prevail over serious disease,' said Paul von Autenried, vice president, Information Management Shared Services, Bristol-Myers Squibb.

EDS will manage Bristol-Myers Squibb's IT environment, which includes the company's critical operations data at Bristol-Myers Squibb data centres around the world. The contract initially covers IT services in the Americas and Asia Pacific regions, with the opportunity to include Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Additionally, EDS will provide computer capacity to Bristol-Myers Squibb from its data centre in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

EDS will also provide multi-language field-level and help desk support for the Bristol-Myers Squibb employees' computing environment. This includes the company's sales, scientific and SAP systems and employee workstations in a number of countries around the world.

The agility, flexibility and redundancy of EDS' Global Services Network offers cost savings while improving global competitiveness with the ability to operate in a leveraged and secure global environment. It also provides the ability to scale up or down based on business needs and mitigates risk by spreading out computing power to multiple locations.

'This biopharmaceutical pioneer is a significant addition to EDS' healthcare customer base. Our goal is to help Bristol-Myers Squibb's global competitiveness by delivering innovative, thought-leading IT services,' said Jeff Kelly, executive vice president, EDS Americas. 'As a leader and important partner in healthcare transformation, EDS helps healthcare organizations worldwide address critical business challenges through IT, allowing companies like Bristol-Myers Squibb to lead in the fight against disease.'

As part of this agreement, EDS Agility Alliance partners EMC, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP will provide products and services to Bristol-Myers Squibb, furthering efforts to increase productivity, mitigate risk and lower costs. The EDS Agility Alliance is a coalition of companies globally recognized for their quality, products and value to clients.
