Unisys outsourcing deal with PSIS extended, SOA implemented

Relationship established 44 years ago will run for another three

Unisys NZ has won a three-year renewal of its longstanding IT services contract with the financial services cooperative PSIS.

The services delivered under the contract include ClearPath and ES7000 servers and other data centre hardware support, disaster recovery hosting and services, and security monitoring of PSIS’ internet banking channel.

In a statement from Unisys announcing the contract extension, Annette Natta, general manager of information services at PSIS, is quoted as saying: “At PSIS our customers are also our shareholders, so our aim is to provide consistent and reliable services that they can depend upon to protect their financial assets. We have worked closely with Unisys since 1967 to develop an IT infrastructure that combines flexibility and dependability to support that aim as the banking industry evolves and the economic environment in which we operate changes.”

The statement continues: "Recently, Unisys has been assisting PSIS to implement a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) solution to help PSIS improve the efficiency of its applications and enhance services to its customers. So far this project has included implementing new lending and transaction modules, and future work will include back office transactions such as automatic payments, card processing and direct debits."
