If everything goes as planned, Infosys will win a multi-year USD 1.3 billion deal from Daimler, a German multinational automotive corporation.
The deal is focused on infrastructure management services, networks, workplace IT, and data centers.
The IT outsourcing deal from the Mercedes-Benz company involves transferring of its 500-600 employees to Infosys.
“In the area of IT, we will continue to focus our internal IT competencies on software development, thereby strengthening Daimler in the digital competition. At the same time, we will be able to benefit from the scaling effects and innovative performance of global IT companies in the areas of data centers, networks, and workplace IT,” said Dora Constantinita, Spokesperson for Digitalisation and IT for Mercedes-Benz Cars and Vans.
He further added that Daimler is currently investigating whether it can partially transfer its areas of data centers, networks, and workplace IT to an external partner.
“After evaluating different offers of potential candidates, we now down-selected those possible partners and proceed for exclusive negotiations with one partner for the said areas,” added Constantinita.
However, Infosys has not yet commented on the Daimler deal.
According to a report last year, a Daimler restructuring plan called for laying off its workforce by over 10,000 to reduce USD 1.6 billion personnel spending by 2022.
