DiData snags $12m Office 365 deal at Transport for NSW

Finds cloud foothold in major portfolio.

Dimension Data has picked up $16 million worth of deals to supply Transport for NSW with cloud email and productivity services, plus server management over the next three years.

The deal is spread over two contracts – a $12.4 million contract to deliver and manage the Office 365 productivity suite across the organisation and a second to manage and maintain its Microsoft cloud and enterprise server environment valued at $3.4 million.

The two contracts cover Transport for NSW’s 25,000 desktops and email users, and its 600 server licenses

“No hardware has been replaced by these contracts,” a Transport for NSW spokesman said.

The spokesman declined to reveal the time-frame over which the software was expected to be rolled out. The contracts expire in July 2018.

It has been a case of swings and roundabouts for DiData’s fortunes in the public sector in recent years.

Late last year the integrator pipped Telstra to snag a $32 million whole-of-government deal to supply South Australia with email and collaboration tools.

However, that only partially offset revenue that it lost in 2014 when NEC dislodged it from a whole-of-government managed network services contract it had held with South Australia since 2006.

The contract is believed to have delivered $113 million into DiData’s coffers over the eight years.
