Unisys LogoUnisys Corp. has completed the migration of more than 1.7 billion driver and motor vehicle registries for the New Zealand Transport Agency, according to a company statement.

“Unisys developed and implemented an innovative modernization program that allows us to develop web and mobile-enabled applications and provides more flexibility in the way that we engage with our customers,“ said Craig Soutar, NZTA chief information officer.

This is the final stage of a four-year business transformation program expected to enhance the flexibility and minimize IT infrastructure costs for the agency.

“We needed to modernise the IT infrastructure while continuing to deliver our “˜business as usual' services such as accommodating legislative changes in the agency's systems, said Kate Giles, sales manager of Unisys New Zealand technology consulting integration services.

Unisys has migrated more than 1.7 billion records, almost 350 database tables, 500 reports, 65 APIs and approximately 700 green screens to a Windows-based Unisys ES7000 and ES3000 platform running Unisys agile business suite and hosted in the company's Auckland and Kapiti data centers.

The NZTA estimates the modernization effort has saved the agency approximately $67 million, compared to the cost of replacing the registry systems.

The NZTA is responsible for New Zealand's land transport system, including the implementation of laws, regulations and rules.

Unisys has supported the agency's driver and motor vehicle registries systems for more than 20 years.
