G4S has signed a £32.9 million contract with Fujitsu UK & Ireland to provide business-critical IT infrastructure and services support over seven years. The company is looking to increase its overall agility and support business growth while reducing costs.

The contract covers the three core G4S business units in the UK and Ireland: Cash Solutions UK; Secure Solutions UK; and the Group and UK and Ireland regional management teams. Fujitsu will migrate G4S systems and data to its own data centres, transform end-user computing to reduce operational costs and provide service desk support.

The G4S server and storage estate will be split between two of Fujitsu’s tier III data centres, with dual connections for disaster recovery. Fujitsu will use its cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) architecture to deliver applications.
