GM will hire 3,000 HP employees for its IT operations

General Motors plans to hire 3,000 Hewlett-Packard employees who were previously assigned to its accounts.

The move is part of GM’s plan to bring 90 percent of its IT work in house from outside contractors, in order to give it direct control over new software applications and to reduce overlap of current services.

GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott, who held the same job at HP, has been frustrated by the automaker’s outdated and overlapping IT systems since joining the company in February. Mott wants to speed product development by reducing the company’s reliance on outsourced contracts. The automaker has also bought several HP software applications to improve its software development, data management and support processes.

“These agreements with HP will enable us to accelerate the progress of our IT transformation by delivering increased innovation and speed of delivery to our GM business partners, and reduce the cost of ongoing IT operations,” Mott said in a statement.

GM also announced last week that it would hire 1,500 new IT workers at its Warren Tech Center and another 500 in Austin, Texas. The company said today that it still plans to open two new software centers elsewhere.
