Siemens Business Services is providing desktop support to Microsoft workers in 57 countries. The contract was previously held by HP.

The contract covers 70,000 seats and is for three years - the value was not released at Microsoft's request. SBS previously ran desktop support for Microsoft in the Americas. This is now extended to include Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Dan Moscatello, vice president for SBS in the US, told the Reg: "We are extending the deal and replacing HP in EMEA."®
