QANTAS will spend $191 million outsourcing its computing operations to two Indian software companies at a cost of up to 300 jobs, in what is understood to be the largest offshore IT deal in Australian history.

Mumbai-based Tata Consultancy Services, the IT arm of India’s largest company, the Tata Group, will pick up $120 million over the seven-year life of the contract. Competitor Satyam Computer Service’s chunk of the work is worth $71 million.

Project leader TCS takes responsibility for the airline’s operational systems, such as logistics and air logs, while Satyam will handle back-office systems like human resources and finance.

In handing over the work, much of it relating to older and expensive programs, the airline expects to save $100million over the life of the deal.

The Indian outsourcing companies will create 300 jobs. Two hundred will be in India and 100 in Australia.
