CSC Lands Cloud Services Contract With The Fred Hollows Foundation
News Release -- December 17, 2013
SYDNEY, Dec. 17, 2013 – CSC has signed a cloud computing services contract with an Australian-based non-profit international development organisation, The Fred Hollows Foundation (FHF). The implementation will bring together FHF offices around the world onto a common communications technology platform.
CSC will provide FHF with cloud computing services using CSC's BizCloud Virtual Private Enterprise (VPE) platform. Contracted services will include application migration and on-boarding services as well as security migration, installation and support.
FHF, supported by tens of thousands of Australians, considers the privacy of its donors to be of paramount importance. Moving some applications to CSC's BizCloud VPE will help to secure FHF's private information.
Commenting on the contract award, Ram Neupane, director of business operations for the Fred Hollows Foundation, said, "Our decision was based upon CSC's ability to provide end-to-end services, including enabling, migrating and managing our existing applications. Most importantly, FHF offices around the world will benefit from CSC's global cloud footprint, including regional data centres and service desk operations."
"The Fred Hollows Foundation was clear about how they believed information technology services could better support their business activities in Asia, Africa and Australia. The agility and low risk of CSC's cloud solution, the potential benefits of our credentials in cybersecurity and healthcare, and our global reach appealed to FHF," said Paul Gibbs, CSC's director of cloud computing for the Australia and Asia regions.
