NEC nabs SA Government IT services extension

The deal involves supporting more than 1500 servers and numerous agency SANs

NEC Australia is building on its 4 year relationship with the Office of the CIO, State Government of South Australia, securing a multi-million dollar interim contract extension. The distributed computing support services panel contract has been extended for another year, where NEC will supply IT support services to government agencies across metro and regional South Australia.

The deal, which runs from July 2013 to June 2014, involves supporting more than 1500 servers and numerous agency SANs plus backup/restore services which in some cases occur every 15 minutes 24/7.

It will also provide help desk services to support agency calls for assistance as part of this service.

On the back of this, NEC has set up a dedicated project delivery team to ensure the agency’s demands are delivered on time and within budget.

The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
