IBM extends PlatformOne hosting deal

Human resources solutions provider PlatformOne announced on Friday it has extended its August 2003 contract with IBM for technology hosting services.

PlatformOne offers HR business processing outsourcing solutions that include HR technology infrastructure, HR administrative services and HR professional support to mid-market companies. PlatformOne says it manages all the human resources information systems and technology infrastructure on behalf of its clients.

"Our HR outsourcing services and the PlatformOne professionals that deliver them are only as reliable as the information systems that support them," says Tony Foley, PlatformOne's president. "Our software applications, in turn, can only perform as well as the computing infrastructure and technology foundation upon which they depend. In short, our reputation and our business rely on the performance of our computing environment."

The new, five-year agreement will result in the implementation of IBM's latest computing technologies, including servers, routers, firewalls, switches and storage devices. The $5 million hosting contract will see IBM provide PlatformOne with managed services such as continuous monitoring, system management, disaster recovery and infrastructure support.
