"We look forward to working with Datacom, and the two other suppliers, over the term of this contract."
In addition, NEC Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation, has also been selected as one of three suppliers to lead GovNext-ICT.
"NEC Australia is proud to support a cutting edge technology project for the Western Australian Government that allows each agency to control technology costs on an as-needs basis," NEC Australia COO, Mike Barber, added.
Barber said the multi-year contract with NEC Australia covers data centre co-location services, private cloud services, public cloud integration, network and communication services, identity management and ICT operations.
"The appointment of NEC as one of three suppliers of ICT infrastructure to the Western Australian Government marks the beginning of an exciting new digital era for the public sector," Marmion added.
"The new arrangements will modernise technology across government and provide the technical platform for the State's ICT Strategy Digital WA."
