Global IT services company Unisys has secured a contract to provide digital workspace services to Victorian road authority VicRoads in a move designed to increase employee effectiveness and collaboration across the agency’s approximately 3500-employee workforce.

Under the seven-year contract, Unisys will modernise VicRoads’ workplace using Workspace Productivity as a Service (WPaaS) based on Microsoft Office 365 productivity software and services, delivering workforce productivity capabilities including integrated communications such as Skype for Business Voice-over-IP, instant messaging and conferencing.

“Victoria is growing rapidly with a million more people to call Victoria home in the next 10 years. VicRoads is based across Victoria with 3500 person workforce. We want to be close to the communities we serve and need technology that supports a large and dispersed workforce,” said Dr Dale Andrea, VicRoads’ chief information officer.

“We selected Unisys to be our technology partner for infrastructure and digital workplace services not just because of the comprehensive offering but because they understood how we were rapidly transforming our workplace culture and the need to have a truly modern, flexible and collaborative workplace enabling us to deliver the innovative services that Victorians want.”

Lysandra Schmutter, vice-president public sector, Unisys Asia Pacific, says Unisys will transform VicRoads’ current workplace infrastructure by migrating the existing on-premise data centre to a secure certified hybrid cloud environment, providing flexible on-demand services that can be quickly and easily scaled to meet the agency’s business needs.

The WPaaS platform is delivered through both a private cloud, to meet the security and resilience requirements for sensitive information and systems, and through Microsoft Azure for all other workloads. And the hybrid cloud will be managed by a single framework, the Unisys Cloud Management Platform, to make it easy to manage and migrate workloads between the different cloud environments as requirements change.

 “We are helping VicRoads transform how the agency works by providing modern workplace technology services and tools to support enhanced productivity, mobility and collaboration. Such an environment promotes the creative and innovative thinking required to develop the citizen services and infrastructure to keep up with the changes in how we use our roads,” Schmutter said.
