Bangalore, Apr 15: Indian IT major Infosys has reportedly bagged an outsourcing contract from global software giant Microsoft.
The three-year contract is said to be worth about 150 million dollars (Rs 665 crore), under which Infosys will be managing Microsoft's internal IT services across 104 countries.
Quoting company sources, Business Standard reported on Thursday, Apr 15 that the contract involves managing Microsoft's help desk, desk-side services, IT infrastructure and applications support in 450 locations globally.
In a statement, the Bangalore-based company informed that it will also streamline the implementation processes, simplify support and service and attempt to lower enterprise costs through the use of the latest Microsoft solutions such as Windows 7.
The contract is especially significant for Infosys, a longtime Microsoft partner, as it will have a global competitive edge besides the encouraging fact that the Indian company was chosen over all of Microsoft's US-based partners.
