Infosys secures bags 5-year outsourcing deal with BP



BPThe Australian operations of Indian technology player Infosys has won a deal to provide BP with IT services, in particular application support and development. It said it was chosen to support BP in running, enhancing and developing business applications and improving business IT processes across all of its IT operations.

Financial terms of the deal were not released, but Infosys Australia and New Zealand head Jackie Korhonen said the local operations would do well out of the contract.

It will provide IT consulting services in the deployment of BP’s global learning management system in Australia, and will also provide IT support to BP’s Upstream business in Australia, which focuses on finding reserves of oil and gas, developing the means to extract and process it and then consistently producing and transporting it to market.

“Infosys is known for its ‘silent running’ when supporting some of BP’s most critical and specialised systems without interruption or disturbance to BP. We are deploying their global learning management system in Australia currently, and also support some critical reserves archival Upstream applications remotely, which are deployed in Australia as well,” Ms Korhonen said.

The agreement came into effect on September 1 and has a broad geographical scope including BP’s main facilities in Texas, and in the UK, as well as support in locations as diverse as Azerbaijan, Angola, Brazil and Singapore.
