Wellington Council selects Dimension Data as preferred ICT supplier

Dimension Data announced as preferred supplier to deliver shared ICT Infrastructure Services.

Following an open procurement process, the Chief Executives of Greater Wellington Regional Council, Porirua City Council, Upper Hutt City Council, Wellington City Council and Wellington Water, have selected Dimension Data as the preferred supplier to deliver shared ICT infrastructure services.

This is subject to contract negotiations, which are acceptable to all parties, and a decision on the final, implementation business case, which is due in mid-August 2015.

“By joining forces to share common ICT services, we’ll be able to introduce better services at a competitive price,” Andy Matthews, Acting CEO and CFO, Wellington City Council.

“A shared services approach will improve our current systems and enable us to have greater ICT capability across the Wellington region, with systems that have enhanced reliability and resilience.

“We believe by working with Dimension Data we’ll be able to achieve this. We intend to deliver these services to around 2,600 staff across the five organisations. It’s an important change that will better support us all in the future.”

During July to early August, the Councils and Wellington Water will work with Dimension Data to finalise an implementation business case, which will detail the specific benefits and costs for each participating organisation, along with a timeframe for transition.

The final decision on the implementation business case will then follow.

“Dimension Data is delighted to be selected as the preferred supplier for shared ICT infrastructure services for these pivotal Wellington region organisations,” says Jo Healey, CEO, Dimension Data.

“We are committed to the enablement of these shared services and to delivering dependable and efficient services to underpin continued economic growth for the region.”

According to Healey, implementation of the new services will be phased and is anticipated take about 18 months.

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.
