Leading Car Manufacturer Extends Global Networking and Technology Services Deal with HP
MUNICH, Germany -- HP today announced a five-year extension to its global, multimillion dollar business deal with the BMW Group, the German automobile, motorcycle and engine manufacturing company.
As part of the deal, HP Technology Services will deliver higher value support services for the HP technology that provides a major portion of the BMW Group’s networking infrastructure.
Given the BMW Group’s profile and size, it is essential that the company has a robust and secure open standards-based network infrastructure it can rely on, and one that delivers a solid return on investment. Based on the performance, interoperability and cost-efficiency of HP Networking solutions, the BMW Group has extended its existing agreement with HP to deliver HP E-series switches and a range of support services.
The BMW Group’s network infrastructure of award-winning intelligent HP E5400, E3500 and E6200 switches is centrally controlled by HP Networking Manager Plus, a Microsoft Windows®-based platform for mapping and configuration of the network. The addition of a next-business-day hardware replacement service from HP Technology Services will match the BMW Group’s mandatory service-level agreement and improve access to HP services.
“Global organizations demand high-performance networking solutions and support to ensure interoperability across the enterprise and meet stringent service-level agreements,” said Johan Deschuyffeleer, senior vice president and general manager, Technology Services – EMEA, HP. “This new deal confirms HP both as a global player offering flexible services to support the BMW Group’s drive for operational excellence, and as the networking platform of choice for large enterprises.”
HP creates new possibilities for technology to have a meaningful impact on people, businesses, governments and society. The world’s largest technology company, HP brings together a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services and IT infrastructure at the convergence of the cloud and connectivity, creating seamless, secure, context-aware experiences for a connected world.
