Affiliated Computer Services (ACS; Dallas) reported being awarded a seven-year, $130 million contract to provide information technology outsourcing (ITO) services for Allergan (Irvine, California), a multi-specialty company.
ACS will supply infrastructure services, including datacenter operations, network monitoring and management, and end-user support services. The ACS-designed solution will provide the scale necessary to meet Allergan’s growth, as well as access to new technology to support its unique industry needs.
Vezina, group president of ACS Commercial Solutions, said, “Our partnership will enable Allergan to focus on its global core business operations as the company grows and help meet Allergan’s need for advanced technological capabilities.”
Along with ITO services, ACS will implement a platform that utilizes a network connection to store data online, provide data security, and reliably restore backup data. The solution replicates backup data directly to the disaster recovery site, thereby reducing business recovery time and incidence of data loss by eliminating off-site data handling.
Sue-Jean Lin, Allergan’s CIO, said, “ACS has the technology and expertise to meet our growth needs, and their dedication to quality service makes them a strong cultural fit as well.”
ACS provides business process outsourcing and information technology solutions to commercial and government clients.
