Continuing with its 30-year relationship with IBM, an agency from Australia’s Northern Territory Government has chosen to deploy the company’s new mainframe platform designed to enhance core database systems, IT-Wire reported Tuesday.
Peter Dinham writes that Scott Thomson, director of data center services at Northern Territory Government Department of Corporate and Information Services‘, said the agency has used IBM’s zBC12 since 2012.
“Taking an early-adopter approach to technology has always been a priority for DCIS, particularly given our portfolio's focus on immediate and reliable transfers of often-sensitive information,” he added.
The zBC12 deployment is part of the agency’s regular four-year information technology refresh program.
“As a system designed for a myriad of applications across cloud, mobility, and business analytics, the zBC12 offers everything the DCIS requires to generate further efficiency dividends through ongoing innovations across its data-centric service portfolio,” added Andreas Wenzel, IBM Systems and Technology group.
The DCIS provides leadership advice and services to various agencies in the Northern Territory.
