Boosting the local South Australian technology industry, HP has taken the wraps off its new applications services centre, the second facility to open in the South Pacific following Christchurch, New Zealand.
Part of the Best Shore delivery network, the Adelaide-based centre will offer application services (including application development and management) to enterprise and government organisations, which are sold and delivered by HP Enterprise Services.
“Organisations need to transform applications that limit their responsiveness to rapidly changing enterprise needs,” HP Enterprise Services, South Pacific, vice-president, David Caspari, said in a statement. “The Adelaide centre will help organisations meet this challenge by providing access to world-class technology, best practices and the expertise of the global HP team.”
To support the initiative, HP is expected to double its applications workforce based in Adelaide.
In other news, HP is also reportedly opening a new $100 million datacentre complex on 13.4ha of land in Eastern Creek, NSW, as revealed in The Australian after citing planning documents. A HP spokesperson wouldn’t divulge specific details to ARN, other than to confirm the project is in the approval stages.
“HP can confirm that it has submitted a planning approval with the New South Wales Government Department of Planning and Blacktown City Council for the construction of a new data centre. It is currently going through the approval process.”
