Energy generation company, Eraring Energy, has renewed the contract to outsource its IT services for an additional three years with Logica.
The agreement will see the continued end-to-end support for Eraring Energy’s whole IT environment, including service desk, infrastructure, network, application, enterprise resource planning, and database services, services which has been outsourced to Logica since 2002.
Eraring Energy manager information technology and telecommunications, Mark Edwards, said Logica had been reliable during a period of change in the NSW energy sector, helping to improve business and reduce operational costs.
Logica assisted with the virtualisation of Eraring Energy’s IT infrastructure, and is in the process of implementing an enterprise backup solution to reduce operational costs and retrieval time by switching from a disk to tape solution to a disk to disk solution.
According to Logica’s chief executive of Asia Pacific, Colin Holgate, the energy sector in Australia is undergoing a period of change as it attempts to capitalise on new technologies to improve energy production and distribution to lower the environmental impacts.
