IBM Corp. and Omron have expanded their partnership and inked a seven-year strategic services contract for IBM to manage Omron's information technology (IT) infrastructure operations in Europe. Under the agreement, 23 Omron employees from the Netherlands, Germany, France, United Kingdom and Spain will join IBM.

IBM is responsible for the transition of the Omron environment to the IBM data center in Brussels, building a new client platform, migrating all end users to a new server-based computing environment, data center management and services, helpdesk, workplace services and technical application management.

"IBM has a long lasting relationship with Omron headquarters in Japan, in which relationship outsourcing contracts have already been in place for 13 years. The intention to expand this partnership to a global level has recently been captured in a Memorandum of Understanding. The trust that Omron and IBM have built in Japan is now expanded into a deepened partnership in Europe," says Roberto Maietti, president and CEO of Omron Europe B.V.

"IBM will draw on the breadth of its technology services and cross-industry expertise to support Omron's business strategy," said Harry van Dorenmalen, CEO IBM Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

In addition, IBM Japan and Omron Corp. recently extended by five-years its existing system operation outsourcing agreement by five-years to support Omron's IT-centered structural reforms using IBM's global delivery.
