Australian technology services and solutions provider Data#3 will be the sole Microsoft software provider to the Western Australian government after winning two three-year contracts.
Data#3 has been selected by the Western Australian government to supply Microsoft software including to the education sector.
Data#3 general manager for Western Australia Kingsley McGarrigle said the win is a direct result of the company’s ongoing investment in the local state market.
“Data#3 Western Australian office is going from strength to strength, and the investment we’ve placed in our people is directly passed onto our customers through innovative solutions,” he said.
According to the solutions provider, it was selected due to its “value for money” proposal, which aligned with the state government’s ICT strategy to identify cost saving opportunities for Microsoft licensing solutions.
“The Western Australian Government sought a provider that would deliver governance, ensure compliance and offer strategic efficiencies with the planning and deployment of Microsoft licensing and cloud-based technologies,” Data#3 said in a statement.
The contract win builds on the company’s ongoing growth that Data#3 reported during its first-half yearly results for the 2019 financial year in February. Total revenue for the six-month period to 31 December 2018 increased by 17.7 percent to $644.4 million, which included $142.7 million of public cloud revenue.
