Bharti, IBM join hands to provide business @ ease to India Inc

Bharti Televentures and IBM have joined hands to provide Information Communication Technology (ICT) solutions to India Inc at a single window platform. The agreement is a first of its kind, the two companies claimed, where a telecom leader and a leading IT company have come together to address the needs of the ICT market in India.

“Our joint offering will provide completely different value to Indian companies, which they have never experienced before,” said Badri Agarwal, President, Infotel Business Group, Bharti Tele-Ventures Ltd. “It will redefine the existing paradigms of services in the Indian ICT industry and add unparalleled value to the offerings of both the companies,” he claimed.

The ‘Joint-Go-To-Market’ initiative will seek to enable clients to achieve continuous access to their enterprise information and critical business processes without having to increase infrastructure requirements.

Both the companies will build upon each other’s resources for a complementary partnership. While Bharti will provide end-to-end telecom connectivity and carry our sales function, IBM will focus on the IT infrastructure and technology management services of clients.

Shanker Annaswamy, Managing Director, IBM Global Services India Pvt Ltd, said, “This joint agreement with Bharti will bring further value to our clients and help them on their journey to become on demand businesses by providing a range of series that are scalable, flexible and responsive.”

Yang Boon Kiat, GM, IBM Global Services, ASEAN/South Asia, who was present on the occasion, said, “We are, for the first time, having such a partnership with any telecom company in the Asia-Pacific region, because we are quite upbeat about the growth opportunities India provides.”

The joint services are targeted primarily at the banking, financial services and insurance, manufacturing and the government segments. It will enable companies to conduct their ‘business @ ease’ by entrusting their entire ICT requirements.
