A newly created Government Datacentre Migration Services Panel has been formed with Fujitsu and The Frame Group fitting the list.
The panel is one of a series of Federal Government panels for ICT services across agencies.
Panel members were selected on the basis of a highly competitive tender process in which each organisation had to demonstrate its ability to migrate organisations from older facilities to new, more efficient and sustainable data centre sites.
The panel provides agencies with a list of proven suppliers who can assist in a wide range of services supporting data centre migration including requirements definition, procurement, design, data centre project management and logistic planning, and installation of data centre ICT equipment at the new site.
The services also include the de-commissioning of vacated facilities, data centre metrics and capacity management on behalf of agencies. State and Territory governments can also use the panel for services.
“The Migration Services Panel represents strategic procurement processes being introduced by the Australian Government for ICT services,” Fujitsu’s Group Executive Director of Australia Government, Phil McCormack, said.
Newly installed Fujitsu CEO, Mike Foster, said inclusion in the panel means it can demonstrate the significant investments it made new technology areas including datacentres, cloud services, application development and managed services.
According to special minister of state, Gary Gray, Frame was successful across all datacentre ICT migration categories.
The Federal Government announced its datacentre initiative in September last year, with the aim to save $1 billion in future datacentre costs by 2025.
