CSC has signed an IT services contract with Network Rail, owner and operator of the UK’s railway infrastructure, to provide midrange services and Oracle enterprise resource planning support.
The agreement, which has a five-year base period and one three-year option, coincides with a significant infrastructure investment by Network Rail essential to providing the UK with a safe, reliable and efficient railway.
The midrange work includes server maintenance and management, data center hosting, security, disaster recovery planning and storage area network management.
Nick Wilson, president of CSC’s European northern region operations, said: We are delighted to be working with Network Rail. This win builds on our track record in the public sector and our significant global presence in the transport industry. CSC’s critical infrastructure expertise will help deliver improved results to Network Rail in support of their journey to become a world-class organization.
Catherine Doran, director of information management at Network Rail, said: This is a key contract award for both organizations and was arrived at following exhaustive evaluations by my team in NR and, from CSC’s point of view, in the face of fierce, high quality competition.
