Lloyd’s Inks IT Deal with Unisys

June 15, 2004

Lloyd’s has signed a five-year infrastructure management services agreement with global IT company Unisys worth an estimated $17 million.

The service provider will support around 1,400 desktops and 200 servers. Under a separate contract, Lloyd’s purchased two Unisys ES7000 servers plus infrastructure consolidation assessment services. Unisys’ bulletin said it “aims to transform and manage Lloyd’s IT infrastructure to help make it transparent, secure and flexible, therefore enhancing the company’s service delivery.

“Lloyd’s employees will receive IT support from the Unisys managed services center located in Milton Keynes, UK. Unisys will also deliver remote server management from its managed services center based in Schiphol, The Netherlands. The systems replace Lloyd’s existing ‘break/fix’ IT maintenance service contract.”

“Lloyd’s chose to partner with Unisys because of the professionalism and knowledge displayed during the tender process,” commented Chris Rawson, Lloyd’s chief information officer. “Unisys also presented an imaginative proposition designed to continually improve the quality of services delivered in line with our organizational change and business objectives.”
