Sydney - 25 Jan 2008: IBM Australia (NYSE: IBM) today announced that IBM Global Business Services (IBM GBS) has been awarded a Queensland State Government contract to implement business solutions over the next four years as part of the Government’s Shared Service Initiative.

The Shared Service Initiative is aimed at reducing duplication by developing common business processes, consolidating systems and rolling out more efficient finance and human resource systems that support the operations of Government departments. It includes a finance suite (based on SAP), and a human resources suite (based on SAP, Recruit ASP, SABA and Workbrain).

Consultants from IBM GBS Australia’s human capital management, financial management and strategy & change practice areas will deliver a range of services including application development and testing, training and change management.

IBM’s first priority will be to implement the new human resource system in the Department of Education, Training and the Arts; Queensland Health; Queensland Corrective Services and the Department of Emergency Services.

IBM GBS Managing Partner, Ian Ball attributed several factors to IBM’s success.

“The knowledge and experience of IBM’s local public sector team combined with the shared services expertise of both our Human Capital Management and Financial Management practices were clearly valued by Queensland Government.

“IBM’s global delivery capability also demonstrated IBM’s ability to resource and manage an engagement of this nature and scale.

“IBM looks forward to now applying the breadth and depth of its local and global capabilities and resources to enable the Queensland Government to achieve a successful outcome in servicing its clients.”
