Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Infosys has been selected by Telenet, a Belgian telecommunication provider as its preferred IT partner to deliver several digital and data initiatives for the next five years.
As telecommunications service providers across the world are transforming themselves to become digital service providers, Telenet plans to leverage Infosys’ ecosystem to drive simplification of its existing landscape, build new digital and data capabilities, extract relevant insights from data and leverage existing talent more effectively.
Infosys will drive two key initiatives as a part of this program
- End-to-end digital and data transformation to help Telenet become leaner and more efficient, supporting its goal to become a truly digital enterprise
- Bringing in an agile way of working to drive Telenet’s digital first strategy and deliver high-quality products to market, at speed. This will also help Telenet build a future-ready workforce, equipped with relevant digital and data skills.
- The partnership with Infosys will also help Telenet save significantly on IT operating costs and structurally reduce the number of existing IT applications. This partnership is another milestone in the 19-year long relationship between the two companies, during which Infosys has managed Telenet’s legacy IT landscape.

Anand Swaminathan, EVP – Global Head of Communications, Media & Technology at Infosys, said, “Infosys is excited to support Telenet in its journey of transforming into a digital enterprise.
