IGate will take responsibility for transforming and managing all enterprise systems, including ERP, business intelligence, infrastructure and data network and telephony services, the US-based company said in a statement.

"Beyond demonstrating their depth and IP-led capability, iGATE showed that they understood our business requirements and responded with flexibility and innovation. We look forward to working together in the years ahead," Orange Switzerland Chief Technology Officer Johan Hall said.
