The agreement with Tech Mahindra is particularly important for us. From an industrial perspective it allows us to accelerate the development of our portfolio and time to market, both crucial factors in a highly competitive market. For a player like us, with a very strong footprint in the network and infrastructure segments, the agreement is intended to expand our presence in IT, a sector which is gaining more and more relevance in regards to the evolution of networks towards virtualization.

The partnership with Italtel is absolutely strategic for Tech Mahindra. It comprises two parts; faster product engineering and joint go-to-market for some of the largest strategic customers in Italy. The combination of Italtel and Tech Mahindra is unique in the industry because not only does it bring together Telecommunications and IT, but also a deep understanding of the Italian market.
