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.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
