IT services major Infosys on Tuesday said it has secured a multi-year deal from automaker maker Daimler AG for the management of infrastructure services and data centres.
Financial details of the deal were not revealed.
Infosys said in a statement that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Daimler AG "covering management of infrastructure services and data centres, providing e-collaboration and middleware services as well as overseeing database operations".
The agreement was signed in the second quarter of Infosys' financial year 2013-14 and the transition was completed and steady state operations started in first quarter of 2014-15, it added.
Under the agreement, the firm has completed successful transition to take over operation of European data centres of the automobile maker, it said.
This collaboration lays the foundation for optimising data centre operations using secure cloud technologies and the service will be delivered out of Daimler's Enterprise Operations Office in Bangalore, Infosys added.
"Radically changing markets and customer demands are making manufacturers relook at their technology backbones to seek solutions that enable rapid response at manageable costs and without disruption," Infosys Associate VP and Head of Automotive in Europe Ruchir Budhwar said.
Such solutions allow companies to react quickly, at low cost and without downtime, he added.
Infosys will manage the day-to-day data centre operations driven by a shared vision to innovate and transform these facilities, Budhwar said.
