HP, AlcaLu form partnership

HP and Alcatel-Lucent have signed a relationship agreement that seals the two companies’ intent to forge a 10-year global alliance to help customers leverage the convergence of telecommunication and IT.

Once the definitive agreement is executed, the companies will jointly market solutions and capabilities that enable end-to-end transformation for service providers and enterprises.

The two firms plan to launch a global go-to-market program to transform communication networks into converged, next-generation infrastructures.

As a result of this transformation, service providers can efficiently deliver new, revenue-generating services. HP and Alcatel-Lucent also plan to offer services to manage new and existing infrastructures for customers looking for flexible sourcing options.
