Datacom scores $10m deal


Datacom has secured a three-year, $10 million services contract with Norfolk Group Holdings.

The contract will require the integrator to transit Norfolk Group to a centralised IT platform based on Citrix MetaFrame. This will allow the company's national workforce to access common file and data regardless of location or network connection.

Norfolk Group IT manager, David Gregson, said it had conducted an extensive selection process with 20 companies for the deal. He refused to disclose the names of the other tier-one multinationals involved.

"We needed someone that was flexible and fast enough to develop with us," he said.

Datacom CEO, Michael Browne, said the addition of Norfolk would benefit the company by enhancing its experience in specific industries.

"It is a new opportunity and a prospective client for us," he said. "The scale of deployment and the speed at which it happens, builds on a lot of our past experiences in the company."

Datacom will also be responsible for hosting and management of the infrastructure from its Sydney data centre. This is expected to reduce support costs for Norfolk and improve data retention and security.

Additional services include desktop support, LAN/WAN services, service and helpdesk provision, IT procurement and asset management, application development and disaster recovery planning. The deal also has an optional two-year extension.

Datacom is expected to begin implementing its services in October.
