Minter Ellison poised to outsource
Written by Steven Deare, Contributor on
Law firm Minter Ellison is on the verge of signing an outsourcing deal with Optus-owned services unit Alphawest encompassing disaster recovery and Web hosting.

The company last year selected Alphawest as preferred supplier after conducting a tender process.

Minter Ellison director of technology Peter Westerveld said his department had identified a number of areas that could be outsourced and were looking at shifting the law firm's ICT equipment to an off-site data centre.

"Our rooms are not of the quality of an N [level] data centre," he said.

However, he stressed that Alphawest was only the preferred tenderer, and that no deal had yet been signed.
