Unisys to Help Pennsylvania Implement Cloud Computing System; Ron Frankenfield Comments

cloud_security_EMUnisys will provide the state of Pennsylvania with an on-demand, cloud-based computing environment that will work to unify seven data centers under a seven-year, $681 million contract.

The company said Monday the contract covers managed hosting services, self-provisioning and capacity on demand for computing resources based on business needs, technical services and project, contract and facilities management.

IBM and Deloitte Consulting will partner with Unisys on the project.

“By moving to an on-demand computing model for delivering IT services, we are changing the way we have traditionally done business in IT,” said Tony Encinias, Pennsylvania’s chief information officer.

“Rather than attempting to predict our technology requirements years ahead of time, this contract will allow us to purchase services when we need them.”

Ron Frankenfield, president of Unisys Enterprise Services, said he expects the system to help the state deliver IT services to the public.
