ICT integrator, PKBA, has won a systems integration contract with Tasmanian shared services provider, Onstream.
Onstream provides human resources, billing and payroll services for three regional Tasmanian water and sewerage companies, Ben Lomond Water, Southern Water and Cradle Mountain Water.
PKBA will be responsible for integrating the infrastructure and software applications of Onstream as well as the design and implementation of a virtualised environment for 250 to 400 seats.
"It is significant. It’s a large contract to be doing this style of integration work and it’s certainly large in the context of doing a virtualised environment," PKBA director of business development, Conrad Hilder, said.
The virtualised environment, which will be created using VMware ESX version 3.5, will include enterprise resource planning (ERP), document management and disaster recovery systems.
The financial details of the contract are confidential and not being released to the public.
Earlier this month, PKBA was announced as one of 12 panellists for the Tasmanian Government Information and Communications Technology Hardware Contract.
The integrator also recently beat Datacom to score an ICT contract with the Australian Central Credit Union.
