To provide IT infrastructure to improve server and network efficiency
Unisys has won a five-year European-wide contract extension from Bavarian State Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection to provide IT infrastructure modernization services. The contract duration includes a three-year base period and two option years. Datamonitor estimates the deal to be worth $40m.
Unisys is expected to replace existing PCs and printers with new models, and will upgrade the ministry’s IT infrastructure to improve server and network efficiency. It will also implement virtualization technologies for managing storage capacity. It will continue to provide services including email management. The services will be managed and delivered through an operations center in Munich.
Since the original deal in 2002, Unisys has deployed a full-service IT infrastructure at more than 200 sites, modernized more than 14,400 workplaces, and implemented 78 peripheral server centers.
Walther Bredl, director of information and communication at the ministry, said: We understand that continuous, managed enhancement of our IT infrastructure is key to delivering these services. We have extended our relationship with Unisys, our long-term outsourcing services partner, because Unisys creates innovative solutions that best meet our individual business needs and provide the best value for the money.
