Global Express will split from former parent Toll Group’s IT environment with the help of outsourcer Infosys.
As part of this, Infosys will “help set up a greenfield technology environment, and migrate Global Express’ applications and services” to either an “energy-efficient data centre and public cloud on AWS.”
Global Express provides express parcel, freight delivery and domestic forwarding services in Australia, and transport and contract logistics services in New Zealand.
It will “continue to operate under the Toll brand for a two-year transitional period”, Toll Group said last year.
For the cloud migration, Infosys said it would make use of a set of migration blueprints that it collectively brands Infosys Cobalt “to accelerate the cloud journey.”
“We are pleased to partner with Infosys to develop state-of-the-art digital capability, transforming our foundation technology platforms,” chief information officer Danny Gravell said in a statement.
Gravell only joined the logistics provider as its CIO this month, according to his LinkedIn.
He was previously the chief transformation officer and CIO of private hospital operator Epworth HealthCare, as well as a former CIO of Sensis.
The Global Express business was reported last week to have already returned to growth, in part due to the new ownership as well as direction from its CEO, former Australia Post CEO Christine Holgate.
