    IBM wins $600 mln contract with ING’s U.S. unit

    SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 16 (Reuters) – International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: color=#0000ff IBM color=#0000ffNews) said on Tuesday it had Won a $600 million, seven-year contract to manage information technology for ING U.S. Financial Services.

    Under the contract, IBM, which is the world’s largest provider of computers and computer services, will consolidate ING U.S. Financial Services’ mainframe and midrange computer operations and provide mid-range servers, mainframe computers, notebook and desktop computers.

    Also, IBM, which is based in Armonk, New York, will run ING U.S. Financial Services’ help desk, voice and data networks.
