– The IT service provider records very positive order development in the public sector segment
– The EU project is the next milestone in CANCOM’s ambitious growth plans in the public sector
– The maximum total value is around 440 million euros with a maximum term of six years
Munich, Germany, 3 March 2021 – Already in the first weeks of the year, the CANCOM Group was able to win a major project in the Public Solutions business unit, further accelerating its international growth in the public sector. The client is the EU institution eu-LISA with a major project worth a total of around 440 million euros and a maximum term of six years.
As part of the international ecos consortium, the CANCOM Group has won an attractive framework contract with the EU institution eu-LISA. eu-LISA is the European Union’s agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice. It is responsible for the management of large-scale IT systems and thus plays a key role in supporting the implementation of EU strategies for justice and home affairs. In this role, it aims to make Europe more secure through the use of technology. For example, eu-LISA ensures freedom of travel within Europe without compromising security.
“We are looking forward to this major international project, which is one of the largest data center projects in the EU. It will help accelerate our growth plans in the public sector, not only financially, but also in terms of the added value we can offer our customers,” said Rudolf Hotter, CEO of CANCOM.
eu-LISA has set itself very ambitious strategic goals for the coming years: on the one hand, the institution wants to continue growing as a contributor and implementation partner for the EU in the relevant areas of freedom, security and justice; on the other hand, it wants to expand its role as an ICT competence center and service provider. Based on this strategy, ecos, which was founded by everis, CANCOM, OTE and Sopra Steria, will support eu-LISA in the development and provision of an infrastructure platform. This will provide services that can be used for all current and future business systems.
The framework agreement has a maximum term of six years. CANCOM was selected for its expertise in infrastructure services and will provide server, storage & networking components and hardware equipment. In addition, CANCOM technical architects will work closely with the ecos team to design, test and deploy all stack infrastructure solutions, including software through to virtualization. CANCOM’s international focus will enable the provision of services required for the project at various locations of eu-LISA and the cooperating institution in France, Poland and Austria. The maximum total value is around 440 million euros for the consortium as a whole, with CANCOM’s share amounting to 110 to 120 million euros. Currently, the necessary resources are being put in place so that activities can probably start before the end of the first quarter of 2021.
“At present, we are still in talks with a number of other public-sector customers, on the one hand at EU level, and on the other with the federal and state governments. We are looking forward to the next few months with great optimism and anticipation in the public sector business area,” Hotter continues.
