Nomura Research Institute Australia and New Zealand (NRI ANZ) has inked a $94 million contract to provide business systems infrastructure, service desk and end user computer services to Airservices Australia.

The contract is for five years with the option for a five-year renewal. 

NRI will set up and manage a multi-cloud ecosystem for Airservices, while the addition of service desk services to the contract will see NRI become the primary point of contact for all of Airservices’ back and front-end digital infrastructure.

“NRI has worked closely with Airservices Australia who safely manage 11 percent of the world’s airspace, since 2018,” said NRI ANZ CEO Dean Langenbach.

“It is an honour to provide the secure, efficient, and cost-effective technology that supports the Airservices Australia business systems and services, and we are delighted to be renewing our contract with them.”

NRI will also handle the procurement and management of all Airservices’ end user compute equipment and manage its license compliance for business systems with the support of ICT consulting firm and NRI ANZ subsidiary Group 10.

“NRI’s partnership with Airservices has played a pivotal role in modernising our business systems. The renewal of this contract speaks volumes of the valued partnership between us both and showcases our support for NRI,” said Airservices Australia CTO Mark Hind. 

“NRI are a trusted partner, and we rely on them to deliver agile and innovative technology and a positive user experience for our 3,500 employees.”
