Summary:Japanese vendor picks up multi-year IT services contract.

Fujitsu announced today that it has scored an AU$30 million, five-year contract to provide customer service company Salmat with corporate IT services.

The contract covers the provision and management of storage units and servers, data protection, and the hosting of internal applications, including email.

"Capitalising on Fujitsu's investments in datacentre and managed services expertise, Salmat will have a flexible new platform on which it can depend while pursuing its business objectives," said Mike Foster, CEO of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand in a statement.

Fujitsu has won a number of contracts this year, including an eight-year contract from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to provide an end-to-end system for issuing Australian passport, and extending its core IT services contract with the Department of Defence into 2014.

Salmat sold off its business process outsourcing unit to Fujifilm in 2012 for AU$375 million.
