Bharti signs IT outsourcing deal with IBM

Bharti Tele has signed an IT outsourcing deal with IBM India. The 10-year long deal is estimated to be in the range of $700-750 million.

Mar-26-2004

Bharti Tele-Ventures has awarded an information technology management order to the Indian unit of IBM. The total deal for a 10-year period is likely to be in the range of $700-750 million, while for the first five years it is estimated to be in the range of $250-$275 million, reports Reuters.
The deal involves outsourcing of Bharti Tele's hardware, software, and IT service requirements to IBM. The agreement specifies that payments made to IBM India will be linked to the percentage of revenue generation by Bharti Tele and pre-defined service level agreements. The percentage-linked revenue payment is modelled to decrease with Bharti Tele's increase in revenue.
The deal includes all customer-facing IT applications like billing, customer relationship management, and data warehosuing. In addition, internet, e-mail and online collaborations are also included in it. On the infrastructure front, IBM will consolidate Bharti Tele's data centre, IT helpdesk, and enhance its disaster recovery centre capabilities

It's hardly outsourcing when an Indian company contracts the Indian subsidiary of IBM for the work...
Bharti is an INDIAN telco...

Seem to have lots of money. Perhaps the first task of IBM India would be to update Bharti's web pages.
Some local talent Debashish Chakrabarty. Interesting blogger to say the least.
Just noticed he links to Simon Brown's web blog. The world. A small place.

So, it isn't outsourcing if it isn't offshoring. Well, we are all enlightened now :roll:

From the Google link on Indian bloggers:
Indian in England
Not often you get to hear from Bournemouth. Once people move to Bournemouth they disappear.
An attached comment. Don't think he is a java developer but nevertheless:
As an Englishman living in India, I am living the reverse of your situation. Indians are not used to white people living in their neighbourhood and tend to stare in astonishment. But I haven't come across any abuse (apart from once when some mad man spat on me). In fact, Indian women find me attractive, whereas in the UK nobody would look twice at me! For all the hype around Hindutva, I have found that Indian society is much more open and tolerant than British society. However, I think life would be harder for a white woman living in India - attitudes to gender are very conservative and there is a distorted perception of white women as willing to get laid at every opportunity.
