Datacom wins NZ$247m Australian Govt ICT infrastructure tender

Auckland-based IT wins competitive tender process to supply ICT infrastructure and support services to the Australian Government Department of Health.

Auckland-based IT company, Datacom, has won a competitive tender process to supply ICT infrastructure and support services to the Australian Government Department of Health, for an estimated NZ$247 million.

The agreement is a departure from traditional IT Services Outsourcing with a structure to provide an outcomes-based fully managed service, with consumption-based pricing, and a strong focus on service delivery.

According to the Kiwi company, this approach allows Datacom to determine the best way to deliver the services, offering autonomy but also responsibility for the achievement of the outcomes.

“We’re delighted to have been awarded this work after going through a fiercely competitive process and an extensive follow up to ensure a support model that met the needs of the Department of Health,” says Jonathan Ladd, CEO, Datacom Group.

“This new partnership model, with Datacom delivering agreed outcomes, as-a-service, demonstrates leadership and a service delivery evolution by the Department of Health.

“Securing the Department of Health appointment recognises our significant track record, of public sector delivery, advanced technical capabilities and our long term commitment to the federal government market.”

Ladd says Datacom has a “considerable portfolio” of federal government work with new contracts spanning Australian Customs, Border Protection Service and CrimTrac, further complementing established engagements with the Department of the Environment, ATO, ACCC, NHMRC and Airservices Australia.

Celebrating its 50th birthday this year, Datacom has expanded its regional footprint significantly off the back of its extensive expertise in the provision of ICT services, software engineering and application management.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
