Unisys Corp. will consolidate seven Commonwealth of Pennsylvania computer data centers into a remotely accessible cloud under a $681 million contract, the Blue Bell company said Monday.
The contract will run for seven years, with the option for three one-year renewals.
"The idea is to provide services to every organization in state government," Unisys spokesman Brad Bass said Monday.
Any state agency can come to Unisys for information-technology services, Bass said.
After implementation is completed over the next 30 months, Pennsylvania will have one of the most extensive outsourced cloud-computing infrastructures among state governments, said Dan Egan, spokesman for the Office of Administration in Harrisburg.
