Summary:ASG Group has won a multi-year agreement to take the engineering firm to the cloud.

Australian IT services provider ASG Group has continued its current string of contract wins, today announcing that it is adding engineering firm Clough to its cloud stable.

The multi-year contract is expected to net ASG between AU$7 million to AU$9 million each year, and will see Clough move from its current insourced model to cloud infrastructure and SaaS-based ERP solution.

"Our partnership with ASG will transform our IT function from managing hardware and IT to providing information and technology solutions for our employees and clients," said Clough CEO Kevin Gallagher. "This will result in significant cost savings, while providing high-value solutions to many of the technical challenges we face across our business."

Since June, ASG has picked up AU$76 million in new contracts. Among them is a five-year, AU$11.3 million deal with the Western Australia Department of Housing , and a five-year, AU$14.8 million contract with the WA Department of Education .
