Cirrus wins a multi -year managed service contract with the ENI gas giant Australia – Services
ASX-listed Perth-based Cirrus Networks has won a three-year managed services contract with ENI Australia.
The Perth-based company is the Australian subsidiary of Italian oil and gas multinational Eni SpA.
Cirrus said in an ASX release that it would be responsible for implementing, migrating and managing workplace services, server operations, storage management, database management data, network management and service desk.
“The company will also be responsible for the transition and migration of ENI’s service management tool.”
“Cirrus is committed to helping ENI simplify the management and increase the agility of its IT infrastructure; reduce current and future complexity, risks and IT costs; ensure the effective implementation of new digital capabilities; and rationalize the number of requests.
The contract came with optional extensions. Transition and integration activities are expected to be completed by the third quarter of fiscal 2023.
The IT services provider said the deal was “a key strategic win for Cirrus WA’s location and highlights the company’s strategic focus in the midstream enterprise sector.”
Commenting on Cirrus CEO and Managing Director Chris McLaughlin said: “We are delighted to have been selected by ENI Australia as their partner of choice for this managed service.”
“We understand the priorities for ENI to ensure a seamless transition to a continuous managed service while delivering lasting value through our innovative, agile and customer-focused approach.”
In Tuesday’s ASX announcement, Cirrus said Webcentral had lost a “hostile, distracting and costly takeover attempt” after the hosting service provider announced it would sell its 18-year stake. .5% in Cirrus for $5.5 million the same week.
This followed Cirrus’ bitter battle late last year against Webcentral’s decision to acquire Circus for $26 million and remove three of its executives, which Circus shareholders voted against at a a general meeting in October.
