Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Computer Sciences Corp. has scooped up an IT outsourcing gig worth up to $1.5bn with Scandinavian airline group, SAS. The deal runs up to nine years, with the last four years subject to options. If SAS signs up for the duration then the CSC will hit the headlines $1.5bn revenue mark.

CSC will acquire Scandinavian IT Group (SIG) and its 1,200 employees for an undisclosed sum from SAS. SIG, we are told, supplies IT solutions for the airline industry.

CSC has a full spec for the services it will supply SAS, which include IT consulting, systems integration, application development and maintenance. Also it will supply IT infrastructure services for the mission- critical stuff - reservation and ticketing systems, flight maintenance and cargo control systems are named in the press release.

The contract goes live, subject to regulatory approval, on Feb 1, 2004. ®
