“Our ‘flexscale’ Cloud offering is proving to be a genuine differentiator, improving our win rate and margins on major managed services contracts,” he said. “Our investment in Cloud computing solutions was vindicated during the year with a multi-million dollar deal to provide cloud services to Barrick Gold, the world’s largest gold miner.”

Mr Baskerville said the company had was looking to continue its shift to providing application services.

“During the year we also expanded our service offerings to include application services through the acquisition of Conducive Pty Ltd,” he said. “This business exceeded our expectations in all areas and today over 60 per cent of the major contracts we will contest in FY14 will be based around Application Services.”
