Taron Energy extends outsourcing deal

Queensland utility Tarong Energy Corporation has extended its IT outsourcing relationship with Mincom, inking a three-year contract which has an option to extend the deal beyond 2008.
Mincom's global managed IT services business, Mincom Managed Services (MMS), will provide infrastructure and support services for Tarong Energy covering 365 staff at five sites in Queensland and South Australia.
MMS will supply data communications, network, desktop, helpdesk, server, security, disaster recovery and applications support and maintenance services.
MMS already hosts Tarong Energy's enterprise resource planning system, Mincom Ellipse.
The relationship between the two companies dates back to 2000 when Tarong appointed Mincom as its IT infrastructure outsourcing partner, through a five-year contract. MMS has inked deals worth more than $35 million in the last six months.
