“NXP Semiconductors signs contract with Atos Origin to migrate global file transfer infrastructure to Axway’s solution”
Paris, 11 June 2007
Atos Origin, an international IT services company, signed a three-year agreement with NXP Semiconductors, a global semiconductor company founded by Philips, to migrate and manage their existing large file transfer infrastructure to Axway's Synchrony Transfer software. This state-of-the-art, managed file transfer solution will support nearly all NXP's value chain, including research, engineering and manufacturing. File transfer is critical to NXP's business processes and with the new tailored solution, managed file transfer is standardized on a global scale, works efficiently and is cost effective. More than 100 servers and approximately 8,000 users across 12 countries worldwide will be connected to the new infrastructure, executing over 20 million file transfers per year.
NXP selected Atos Origin as its implementation partner because of its ability to meet NXP's needs for complete end-to-end services. In partnership with Axway, Atos Origin offers state-of-the-art software, extensive migration project expertise and global managed service experience. Additionally, the company has a long-standing, successful, working relationship with NXP.
Tom Rixen, Global Client Manager NXP at Atos Origin explains: “We are happy to start this extensive migration project at NXP Semiconductors with Axway as our partner to provide a high-performance solution. This contract underlines the positive continuation of our long history of working with NXP. We believe that the migration will go seamlessly and that the new infrastructure will perform to the complete satisfaction of the customer”.
Louis Luijten, CIO at NXP Semiconductors concludes: “Our current infrastructure was developed in-house and has served us well, but the cost of maintaining and further developing this solution became too high. With Axway's Synchrony Transfer we have found more than a mere replacement, the solution offers us a future proof platform for our growing file transfer requirements. Through Atos Origin we get Synchrony Transfer delivered as an on demand service, bringing us the price / performance and flexibility we need at NXP.“
