IBM has signed a seven-year outsourcing contract with German machine manufacturer Pfleiderer AG.

Under the terms of the contract, IBM will provide application hosting and management services out of Germany and Canada for all SAP systems in Pfleiderer's worldwide locations. The flexible IBM SAP Application Delivery Center Model will allow the German company to use and pay for services according to its needs.

The pricing model and modular services are designed specifically for Pfleigerer and the solution is flexible and perfectly aligned to the company's requirements.

Klaus Vogl, Group CIO of Pfeiderer AG, said: “By centralizing our IT activities, our processes can become more efficient and more flexible. IBM is a globally integrated service provider and is the optimal partner for us to support our global growth strategy.”

The German company could save millions of dollars by consolidating the SAP environment and optimising SAP Application Maintenance, while its employees will benefit from country specific support by IBM Application Management Services.

Christian Till Roga, director of outsourcing sales at IBM Germany, said: “The requirements for an international, medium-sized corporation constantly increase and change. With our global delivery capabilities, we can meet the needs of our stakeholders and react to individual demands. With its new IT infrastructure, Pfleiderer AG will be prepared for the future.”
