analytics data graph iconHP Enterprise Services, Microsoft, Vodafone and 50 other small-to-medium enterprises will work to build a cloud-based data center for a U.K. county.

The Norfolk County Council aims to centralize its agencies’ data into a single hub as the county seeks to boost education standards, build local storage for information and to help attract investment in the county, HP said Thursday.

Stuart Bladen, vice president and general manager of the U.K. public sector at HP Enterprise Services, said the companies will work to help the county council integrate multi-agency information to jointly address big data issues for subjects such as food science and climate change.

HP will work with NCC staff and University of East Anglia graduates to build the desktop, collaboration and data center infrastructure in order to create sustainable jobs in the region.

The information hub will be installed using HP Enterprise Services Information Management and Analytics Advisory services and will be built from HP Autonomy IDOL, HP RM, Visionware, HP Veritica Analytics Platform and Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Office365 tools.

Vodafone will help secure network connectivity with the use of 4G and provide work consultancy services through the Better Ways of Working program.
