LIMA, PERU - 21 Mar 2006: Lima Airport Partners has signed a five-year contract with IBM to provide hosting services for its SAP business applications.

LAP selected IBM because of its experience in managing large local SAP hosting projects on UNIX platforms, providing the high reliability and availability LAP requires. IBM hosts 80 percent of all SAP applications in Peru.

LAP is the business consortium that manages operations for Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima.

"After considering the alternative of managing an in-house solution, we decided to use IBM's hosting service, as it gives us access to IBM's expertise," said LAP CFO Pilar Vizcarra. "This agreement enables us to ensure service availability and to take advantage of economies of scale, with the added benefits of relying on shared IT resources. Our personnel have been freed up to focus on our strategic business areas."

The services IBM will provide include the operation, monitoring and administration of all SAP infrastructure for LAP, including communications and application support.

Under the terms of the agreement, IBM will host the LAP applications at its Technological Campus in La Molina.

"IBM's unquestionable leadership in Peru's SAP hosting market, the experience of our services professionals in this type of engagement, and the infrastructure of IBM Peru's IT Campus all make our clients feel comfortable entrusting their IT processes to our outsourcing operation," said IBM Peru Services Manager Gaspar Fern√°ndez-Concha.
