Bangalore: IBM on Sunday said it has entered into a 10-year strategic outsourcing deal of over Rs80 crore with the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (Amul).
Under the terms of the deal, approved by the GCMMF, IBM would help transform the information technology structure of GCMMF and the milk unions to enable and support their accelerated growth plans.
IBM will manage and operate the IT environment of Amul for the next 10 years.
SAP ERP on the IBM technology platform is the chosen vehicle for this transformation, IBM said in a statement.
IBM will also build a state-of-the-art data unit backed by a disaster recovery centre, define the security policy and maintain and manage the entire technology and application landscape.
As a result, the co-operative would be able to further improve its supply chain, strengthen customer focus and achieve manifold growth, the statement said.
