IBM Signs Major Strategic Outsourcing Deal With Zorlu Group

ISTANBUL, TURKEY - 28 Feb 2006: Leading Turkish industrial group, Zorlu, has signed a US $25 million, 7-year strategic outsourcing agreement with IBM. IBM will take over Zorlu's IT infrastructure, improving the efficiency of the Zorlu Group's IT operations and bringing expected cost savings of 30 per cent.

In terms of the contract, IBM will manage Zorlu's server infrastructure, networks and manufacturing software, migrating systems to IBM solutions. Zorlu Group will draw on IBM's research capabilities and benefit from IBM's expertise in micro-processors, storage and home technology software in product development.

Hamza Cihan Sari, Zorlu Holding CIO says Zorlu is one of the most innovative groups in terms of technology and efficiency. "Vestel, a Zorlu company, is developing many new technologies, mainly consumer electronics. Similarly, Zorlu Textile Group, Denizbank and Zorlu Energy Group are leading companies of their segments in terms of technology. This is an efficient way to manage our IT operations with the IBM team which has experience both in Turkey and globally," said Sari.

As part of the contract, IBM will also provide Zorlu with SAP operations, end-user support, network management services, data center operations management and hosting services.

"Many top companies like Zorlu are choosing to outsource their non-core functions to improve their competitiveness in the market," says IBM Turkey General Manager, Hüseyin Kiziltay. "IBM's global know-how across different sectors, combined with innovative technology helps us better understand our customers' needs. This way we can combine products, services and business consultancy as a package that will boost their business performance through improved efficiency.
