TeliaSonera outsources mainframe computer operations

TeliaSonera has signed a contract to outsource its mainframe computer
operations to Tieto Enator. The 101 employees working with these
operations at TeliaSonera Sweden today will be transferred to Tieto
Enator. By utilising Tieto Enator´s economies of scale, TeliaSonera
Sweden can secure a competitive production cost.

TeliaSonera Sweden is outsourcing its mainframe computer operations
(Unisys OS/2200, IBM AS/400, HP Compaq VMS and IBM S/390 mainframes).
Other computer operations run by TeliaSonera Sweden´s IT service unit
will remain in the company. The outsourcing of mainframe operations will
enable TeliaSonera to continue to offer competitive prices to customers
in the future.

"To be a cost-effective alternative in the long term, TeliaSonera´s
mainframe computer capacity in Sweden must be increased. By outsourcing
these operations to Tieto Enator, we gain economies of scale which will
enable us to offer services of higher quality, and at attractive prices,
to customers," says Ove Alm, head of the Networks and Production unit at
TeliaSonera Sweden.

The agreement requires the approval of the Swedish Competition
Authority.
