Datacom added to SA managed services panel

The South Australian Government has added Datacom to its list of approved suppliers under its Managed Platform Services Panel Agreement (MPS).

Datacom has been selected to provide services across all four categories of the panel agreement, which is designed to enable government agencies and departments to buy services from leading IT providers.

The panel agreement, which replaces the decade-old Distributed Computing Support Services Panel Agreement (DCSS) and Hosting Services Panel (HSP), combines government agencies’ requirements for data processing and storage across various platforms and configurations.

The four categories are state-owned or supplier hosted servers, private and hyperscale cloud, managed, and unmanaged hosting.

Datacom Managing Director for Australia Alex Coates said the company has to date invested $50 million into South Australia over the last three years and is expected to contribute more than $1 billion to the local economy over the next five years.

“Building on our employment of over 1800 South Australians, we are actively contributing not just to employment levels in the state, but also through recognised traineeships, introducing the next generation of ICT professionals to the market and ensuring South Australia is well supplied with ICT professionals,” he said.
