Wellington is soon to lose dozens of IT workers with the shift of Fonterra and closure of IBM's Petone ICMS plant, but a positive for the capital is that EDS is looking for five new Oracle specialists to work on its Telecom outsourcing account.

Wellington is soon to lose dozens of IT workers with the shift of Fonterra and closure of IBM’s Petone ICMS plant, but a positive for the capital is that EDS is looking for five new Oracle specialists to work on its Telecom outsourcing account.

EDS spokesperson Joanna Clarke says the new Oracle analyst-programmers will be recruited “as part of Telecom’s IT transformation” and will be employed in the warehouse and enterprise database area.

In September, EDS and Telecom strengthened their relationship, extending the $1.5bn 10-year service contract, signed in 1999, for a further three years, an extension worth $280 million to EDS.

EDS’ US parent reaped an additional $46 million at the time by buying back the 10% share of EDS NZ that Telecom took in 1999.
