DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) today announced that it has signed a 5-year renewal of its IT outsourcing contract with SEG Automotive Germany GmbH, a leading global supplier of hybrid e-machines, starter motors and generators. SEG Automotive selected DXC for its ability to run reliable, optimized and secure mission-critical systems, and its deep understanding of SEG’s business culture.
As part of the contract, DXC will manage SEG Automotive’s local data center. This will help SEG to simplify and optimize their existing IT investments and provide a path to move portions of their IT estate to the cloud, thereby reducing the burden on internal staff and driving innovation and additional cost savings. The data center will be managed through a hybrid strategy using a combination of DXC’s virtual private cloud and Microsoft Azure, with additional automation provided by Platform DXC™ (PDXC). By introducing PDXC the efficiency and reliability of incident management will increase.
Rino Ariganello, DXC’s automotive industry general manager for North and Central Europe, said: “The services we will provide as the ‘new DXC’ will help SEG Automotive enjoy numerous benefits such as cost optimization and risk reduction, as well as benefit from critical security, cloud and applications capabilities across the entire Enterprise Technology Stack.”
SEG Automotive’s system costs have been reduced by approximately 20% and an upgrade of the local data center infrastructure will contribute to minimizing overall operational risks. “The DXC team’s flexibility, constructiveness and their deep understanding of SEG Automotive’s business and requirements were the key success factors for this continued partnership,” said Thomas Flesch, Global Lead Buyer IT at SEG Automotive Germany.
