SA Govt adds Unisys to Managed Platform Services panel

Unisys Corporation will provide Hyperscale Cloud Management Services to South Australian Government agencies via the government’s Managed Platform Services Panel. The HCM panel provides state agencies with a centralised approach to purchase hyperscale cloud services or third-party management of such services, to simplify cloud adoption and accelerate digital transformation.

This new panel is part of the South Australian Government’s strategy to harness opportunities created by new technologies and new ways of working to develop and deliver better services for people and businesses in South Australia.

Under the panel, Unisys will provide and manage cloud services on hyperscale cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform. These include infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and application support. Unisys joined the panel in the first quarter of 2021.

The Unisys Cloud Management Platform (CMP), which is part of the CloudForte suite of services, includes cloud management and operations services with tools and artificial intelligence for improving operations and providing rapid delivery of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, while managing costs and performance. Unisys CloudForte services are designed to help organisations accelerate their cloud adoption, from legacy migration to new cloud design and deployment for hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Andrew Whelan, Vice President (Client Management) of Unisys Asia Pacific, said Unisys understands how government policies need to be implemented as well as the regulatory and privacy requirements to protect data and information.

“The South Australian Government’s digital transformation strategy highlights the critical role of digital technologies in modernising and transforming public services by not simply putting current processes online, but rather rethinking services for the digital age, to deliver better services to citizens. As part of this panel, we look forward to helping South Australian government agencies streamline their transformation,” Whelan said.

Unisys CloudForte services are designed to enable and support the holistic IT and organisational change required to integrate cloud adoption into the overall business strategy. Unisys has considerable experience working with state and federal government agencies in Australia. More than 215 government agencies worldwide and 20 in the Asia–Pacific region use Unisys solutions.
