The European Southern Observatory (ESO), the leading intergovernmental astronomical organization in Europe, and the most effective astronomical observatory in the world, has chosen Comarch ICT services. Under the outsourcing agreement signed in October 2015, Comarch provides users with ongoing support and maintenance of the IT infrastructure.
Comarch signed two separate contracts with ESO for rendering of IT Out-Tasking services, covering the same range of IT services – one for ESO’s central headquarters in Germany and the other for facilities in Chile (all except Chajantar observatory). In the terminology used by ESO, “IT Out-Tasking services” are a comprehensive set of outsourcing services, which include ongoing support for end users, as well as maintenance of the server infrastructure and network and video conferencing systems and telephone equipment of ESO.
