NT government department sticks with IBM

By

The Northern Territory Government Department of Corporate and Information Services (DCIS) is adopting the new IBM mainframe platform, zBC12 with the aim of improving efficiency dividends and reliability across its core database systems.

According to IBM, DCIS will be one of the first organisations in the world to deploy the zBC12. IBM has been supplying mainframes to DCIS for 30 years.

“With significant and rising transaction volumes across the department, our infrastructure needs to enable fast, reliable access to data which can drive down costs while also improving levels of service,” said Scott Thomson, Director Data Centre Services, DCIS.

“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.

“Following rigorous trials of the zBC12, both test and production systems, we’re confident that its significant advancements will contribute not only to our internal efficiencies, but to the quality of support we can deliver to the agencies that rely on us.”

DCIS selected IBM as part of its regular four-year IT refresh and Thomson said the longevity of IBM’s mainframes was another major factor in the decision.  IBM has been supplying the department with mainframes for almost 30 years.

“This latest stage in our relationship with DCIS only reinforces the department’s reputation for forward-thinking investment in ICT,” said Andreas Wenzel, IBM Systems and Technology Group.

“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.”
