Strategic ICT partnership signed
Flat glass processing technology specialist, Glaston outsources the majority of its ICT services to software and services company Tieto. Through a strategic partnership, Tieto will support Glaston in transforming its ICT environment to better serve current and future business needs.
With Tieto’s support, Glaston intends to streamline its ICT services and increase its cost-effectiveness. The agreement covers infrastructure, end user and application management services globally.
Glaston’s ICT services have previously been managed by several different suppliers but the plan to centralise services with Tieto is expected to bring significant synergies. Additionally, Glaston and Tieto will work together to increase the level of digitalisation and automation of Glaston's products and services, as well as focus on better use of data by, for example, taking into use Tieto's data platform.
Glaston is a forerunner in cloud services and plans to move increasingly to the cloud, especially its Bystronic glass business. Partnering with Tieto also supports Glaston in its efforts to achieve synergies from the recent Bystronic glass transaction.
