Everything Everywhere IT staff get new boss, again

Inhouse outsource resource in force

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Two hundred former Orange staffers employed by Everything Everywhere today start working for T-Systems instead, as the UK's biggest operator commences a seven-year outsourcing deal for its IT systems.

The majority of the staff are, and will continue to be, Bristol-based, while others work from Hatfield, Darlington and Leeds, but from today 200 of them will be working for outsourcing specialist T-Systems instead of Everything Everywhere.

The deal was first announced in March, though not many details were available back then. Now we know that 40 per cent of EE's IT services will be transferred to T-Systems, which is itself owned by one of EE's parents – Deutsche Telekom. Initially that means desktop and datacentre operations, with other services to migrate soon.

The 200 staff involved all used to work for Orange, and from what we've heard are generally happy to know their jobs are secure even if it means a change of employer, and perhaps losing some of the perks of working directly for a mobile operator (we're still trying to establish the details).

According to T-Systems: "This is the dawn of new relationship between two customer-centric organisations. T-Systems will play a critically important role in delivering cloud computing capabilities to meet Everything Everywhere’s challenging Information and Technology requirements."

Though with the staff staying at the same desks and doing the same jobs, one could be forgiven for thinking it's all just paper-shuffling. ®
