WA selects Data#3 as sole Microsoft software provider

The Western Australian Government has selected Australian technology services Data#3 to be the sole provider of Microsoft software for state agencies.

Under the two three-year contracts, Data#3 will supply Microsoft software to the state government, including the public education sector.

The government selected Data#3 for the deal based on a proposal which focused on providing flexibility and autonomy to government agencies to help meet the goals of the state’s ICT strategy. The company has pledged to deliver governance, ensure compliance and offer strategic efficiencies with the deployment of Microsoft software and cloud solutions.

The company also plans to offer strategic advice and knowledge sharing in areas including issues resolution and identifying further cost-saving opportunities.

Data#3 is Microsoft’s largest Australian partner. The company was listed on the ASX in 1997 and now has annual revenues of $1.2 billion.

“We have a longstanding history of working with the Australian Government to effectively leverage technology for advantage,” Data#3 CEO and Managing Director Laurence Baynham said.

“The team at Data#3 look forward to leveraging our extensive skills in the area of Microsoft software and services to deliver real business outcomes to the Western Australian Government.”
