HP, Alcatel-Lucent To Form Global Alliance

HP and Alcatel-Lucent have signed a relationship agreement establishing both parties’ intent to form a 10-year global alliance to help customers leverage the convergence of telecommunication and IT.

Once the definitive agreement has been executed, the companies will jointly market solutions and capabilities that enable end-to-end transformation for service providers and enterprises.

The companies plan to launch a global go-to-market program to transform communication networks into converged, next-generation infrastructures. As a result of this transformation, service providers will be able to efficiently deliver revenue-generating services. HP and Alcatel-Lucent also plan to offer services to manage the new and existing infrastructures for customers looking for flexible sourcing options.

HP and Alcatel-Lucent also plan to create a joint go-to-market initiative to provide communications solutions to mid- and large-size enterprises and public sector organisations. Alcatel-Lucent products in areas such as IP telephony, unified communications, mobility, security and contact centres will be integrated with HP IT solutions. These joint solutions are planned to be offered to enterprises through HP resellers or as managed services.

Furthermore, the alliance will create new end-to-end customer solutions that take advantage of both companies’ product portfolios for the enterprise and telecom markets.

HP managed services for Alcatel-Lucent

As part of the agreement, HP would be entrusted with a large part of Alcatel-Lucent’s IT operations. By taking advantage of HP technologies and transformation experience, Alcatel-Lucent plans to migrate more quickly to advanced IT infrastructure and services that deliver higher performance and efficiency. Throughout the 10-year agreement, Alcatel-Lucent targets significant aggregate savings along with material cash-flow improvements.
