Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

CHICAGO & BLUE BELL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 2, 2003

Three-Year Extension Will Further Delivery of Constituent Services;

Strengthens Unisys Position as Leading State and Local IT Outsourcer

Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS) today announced that it has been awarded a three-year extension to its contract with the city of Chicago to provide a full range of outsourcing services to manage the City's distributed IT infrastructure.

The City expects that new services delivered by Unisys under the extension will increase already dramatically improved operational efficiencies, provide new levels of service to city workers and enable accelerated delivery of constituent services.

The extension has a potential value to Unisys of approximately $34 million over the initial three-year term, and of approximately $56 million if the City exercises two one-year options. The City anticipates that the extension will enable it to save an estimated $6 million to $10 million in IT management and support costs.

Unisys will continue to support over 16,000 City employees in 43 separate agencies, including the Police, Fire, Transportation, Finance, Revenue and Health Departments, who provide services directly to the citizens of Chicago.

Unisys will provide a full range of Infrastructure Managed Services, including network management; management and support of servers, desktop and laptop systems and wireless devices; service desk for end-to-end management of service requests; and software and hardware support and maintenance. Services will continue to be coordinated by a dedicated Unisys program office.

Unisys will also continue providing support for critical applications, including the City's 311 non-emergency call system, and its Web site and related applications -- which has increasingly become a channel for delivering services to citizens, from initiating license applications to paying parking tickets and water bills.

"With Unisys as a partner, we have been able to transform our IT infrastructure, and that has enabled us to completely change the way the City of Chicago does business and demonstrably improve the way we serve our constituents," said Chris O'Brien, Chief Information Officer, City of Chicago. "Extending this relationship with Unisys will enable the City to expand the range of services we deliver to the citizens of Chicago, invest taxpayer funds more efficiently in IT initiatives that directly benefit the public, and further Mayor Daley's vision of making Chicago a virtual city serving citizens 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

Through additional services provided under the contract extension, Unisys will drive further infrastructure improvements and cost savings helping increase efficiency in City operations and Unisys service delivery.

Unisys management of the City of Chicago's distributed IT infrastructure has already enabled the city to achieve a 35% reduction in the time it takes to deliver services to citizens. Additionally, in the first two years of the engagement alone, the City realized a 29% improvement in end-user satisfaction among workers. - Gartner published a case study on the Unisys and City of Chicago engagement, which is available at http://www.gartner.com/reprints/unisys/106807.html.
> "We are proud of the accomplishments we have already had in Chicago and look forward to furthering the City's mission of providing cost effective, reliable, technology enabled services to its constituents," said Everett Dyer, vice president and general manager, North America, Unisys Global Infrastructure Services. "This milestone validates Unisys partnership approach to outsourced infrastructure management and demonstrates how we can empower government to be more efficient and responsive."

Unisys Offers Cloud-Based Services to Manage Mobile Devices
http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Desktops-and-Notebooks/Unisys-Offers-CloudBased-Services-to-Manage-Mobile-Devices-215779/?kc=rss

The Unisys End-User Productivity Services suite addresses the growing trend of employees bringing a wide variety of mobile consumer devices into the workplace, causing security and management headaches for IT departments. The new Unisys services take advantage of virtualization technology and cloud computing.

Unisys is looking to make it easier for businesses to support the growing number of mobile consumer devices being used by today's tech-savvy workers.

Increasingly, employees are bringing to work a host of mobile wireless devices, such as smartphones, that are not issued by the company, raising concerns over security, support and costs.

Unisys Sept. 30 introduced its End-User Productivity Services, a family of outsourcing services designed to support a variety of devices, PCs and applications using cloud capabilities the company already offers.

"You've got the younger generation that want to bring their own devices to work," Tony Doye, president of Unisys Global Outsourcing and Infrastructure Services, said in an interview, noting the growing security concern for CIOs. "You've also got a blurring around what's work and what's play, who is using what devices, etc."

The challenge comes in the various generations of employees in the workplace—from Baby Boomers to Gen Xers to Millennials—and the need to support them all, said Sam Gross, vice president of Global IT Outsourcing Solutions at Unisys.

"The Millennials are going to bring in their devices to the workplace," Gross said.

Analyst company Forrester Research said earlier in September that smartphones make workers more productive, putting the onus on IT departments to find out how to port more applications to these devices and to support these devices.

In an interview in May, Forrester analyst Benjamin Gray noted that this new generation of employees is creating new challenges for IT departments, fueling the drive to employ such technologies as desktop virtualization.

"In a couple of years from now, it's going to be a lot less about the old computer box that IT hands out [to employees] and more about the image that IT is handing out to you," Gray said at the time.

Gross agreed, saying the days of businesses locking into a long-term agreement with an OEM to supply all the company's computing needs are coming to an end.

"That thinking is no longer relevant because the demographics of the work force are changing," Gross said.

Technologies such as Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager and Intel's vPro—both key components of Unisys' End-User Productivity Services—are making it easier for businesses to manage a variety of mobile devices.

The new Unisys services offer not only traditional desktop support, including service desk support, desktop management and applications, but also hosting and virtualization services that use the Internet and Unisys Secure Cloud Solution, which was introduced in June.

Services include Virtual Office as a Service, which gives users access to standard office suites through a subscription to the Unisys secure cloud, and Unified Communications as a Service, which again makes use of the vendor's secure cloud to deliver Microsoft Exchange, Office SharePoint Server and Office Communicator applications in a multitenant environment.

There also are Application Virtualization Services—for preparing and deploying desktop applications in a virtualized environment—and Virtual Desktop Services for monitoring and managing virtual desktops.

Unisys plans to offer a portal for managing stipends given to employees to buy the devices they want to use for work, as well as client-side virtualization to enable vendors to manage individual virtual desktops that are on user devices. (They want your data so badly, they'll help you pay for the devices...)

The stipend-managing service could grow in importance as more businesses are giving their employees money to buy computing devices.

And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

OSA and OW2 Announce Merger Plans
by Lisa Hoover - Oct. 01, 2009
http://ostatic.com/blog/osa-and-ow2-announce-merger-plans

If you have trouble remembering the difference between all the acronym-laden open source organizations out there, now you'll have two less to recall. Open Solutions Alliance (OSA) and OW2 Consortium announced merger plans today. Paris-based OW2 focuses on open source middleware technology while California-based OSA drives adoption of open source software in enterprise. Together, they'll reach out to businesses, schools, and governments spanning several nations.

""When you look at each organization's strengths in technology and market presence, as well as the global positioning of our members, OSA and OW2 look like two puzzle pieces waiting to be put together. We can do much more together than apart, and a combined entity will provide a single voice for open source worldwide and a unique global pool of open source resources," ” said Cedric Thomas, OW2 CEO, in a prepared statement.

OW2's notable members include Funambol, Red Hat, Talend, and China's National University of Defense Technology. OSA membership roster also has several familiar names, including SourceForge, Ingres, and Unisys. Both organizations host or attend seminars, conferences, and other events throughout the world, as well frequent member-sponsored Webinars.

The group's new name and merger date have yet to be announced.

And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

Perpetuating the MYTH that your data requires "Security"... there IS NO SUCH THING as Cyber Security, and Unisys knows this, counts on it. But there's money to be made in mythology... (and false flags yet unseen):


Network Security & Hardware: Six Tips for Keeping Enterprise Data Secure in Cloud Storage
http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Security/Six-Tips-for-Keeping-Enterprise-Data-Secure-in-Cloud-Storage-330138/?kc=rss

Storing data in the cloud has brought with it its own set of compliance and security concerns -- something underscored recently by a survey by Unisys.

The survey revealed that 51 percent of the 312 respondents cited security and data privacy as their top concern regarding cloud data storage. While experts say the public cloud may be ready for certain applications, organizations need to be sure those apps are secure -- and that they can prove it when questioned by auditors. With that in mind, eWEEK spoke to analysts and others in the field and asked them what companies should think about from a security and privacy perspective before pushing their data into the cloud. Here are few of the questions and considerations you should take to your service provider.
