IBM and ABN AMRO have signed a 10-year, multibillion-dollar services agreement to manage the IT infrastructure that supports the bank’s operations globally. The agreement includes the implementation of a private IBM cloud, as well as standardization and simplification of the existing IT landscape, from mobile computing to mainframe infrastructure.
The new agreement with IBM provides fully managed services for mainframe, servers, storage, end-user computing, help desk as well as application support, and is part of an enterprise-wide transformation initiative at ABN Amro.
Based in the Netherlands, ABN AMRO serves retail, private and corporate banking customers. This agreement sees the extension of the bank’s strategic IT relationship with IBM.
