IT services company UXC has scooped up a deal with a Victorian water company that has the potential to be the biggest in the company's history.
UXC scored a deal with City West Water to transform and overhaul its IT infrastructure and implement an Oracle environment.
The services company said in a statement today that the project would take several years to complete and would see UXC work with City West Water to implement an Oracle database, along with Oracle applications, hardware and operating systems.
UXC will use its Red Rock Consulting business arm to complete the task.
City West Water managing director Anne Barker said that the project is about future-proofing the organisation.
"This project is designed to provide City West Water with a technology platform that will support the business for the next decade and beyond," Barker said, adding that UXC has what it takes to get the job done.
"This is another very exciting win for UXC. It is especially pleasing to see Australian business having the confidence to work with and entrust large and complex projects to Australian IT companies such as UXC," UXC managing director Cris Nicolli said in a statement.
UXC recently took a big step in its plan to refocus itself as a pure IT company by divesting its non-IT assets and restructuring the group.
