Sun and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) have formed a global alliance to
define and implement new technology and business solutions for CSC's
global outsourcing clients, including jointly delivered support
services, based on Sun's UNIXR workstations, midrange and enterprise
servers and software.
"Having Sun as one of our preferred providers helps us provide
complete, comprehensive and innovative technical solutions at
competitive prices," said Russ Owen, president of CSC's Global
Infrastructure Services Group. "The current competitive pressures,
particularly in IT outsourcing, require that we have strong, mutually
rewarding relationships with our hardware and software providers. By
strengthening and expanding our relationship with Sun, we have enhanced
CSC's market position as we compete for new clients worldwide."
As the information technology (IT) outsourcing market has matured, the
cost of new technology and the need to have levels of measurable
returns for IT capital expenditures have become increasingly critical
driving factors for global enterprises and government agencies.
"For more than a decade, Sun and CSC have built a strong worldwide
strategic relationship, establishing an ever-growing presence in the
areas of e-business solutions and legacy systems to support a joint
presence in the worldwide marketplace," said Sherle Webb, vice
president of Global Partner Sales at Sun. "CSC's
customers directly benefit from the combined strengths and experience
of two world-class companies that deliver end-to-end services and
solutions that link technological and organizational changes
holistically to achieve lasting business results."
For the past two years, CSC has been actively involved in Sun's global
iForceSM Initiative program and opened three Authorized iForce
Solution Centers in Portland, Oregon; Canberra, Australia; and
Farnborough, UK. Sun's global network of iForce Centers are designed to
help clients utilize Sun's Internet experience and proven methodologies
for leveraging the network as the basis for building and testing
individualized, best-in-class solutions prior to deploying them in
their own environment.
