Reuters has awarded a multimillion pound contract to Tivoli as part of an initiative to standardise the way it delivers internal and external IT resources worldwide.
The contract, worth in excess of $15 million (u9.3 million), is for the supply of Tivoli's TME 10 (Tivoli Management Environment) software. Reuters will adopt TME 10 as its standard fully-integrated systems, network and applications management strategy across all its major IT systems.
TME 10 is an integrated set of multi-platform solutions that gives IT staff consistent, centralised control over network computing environments.
The software will run across a wide range of PCs and platforms at Reuters.
It will be used to manage resources such as Pentium servers and desktops at both Reuters and client sites worldwide, including around 40,000 desktops in the UK.
The contract was awarded to Tivoli following a 12-month evaluation process involving several competitors. Reuters declined to name the other products it tested.
David Kirby, global technical operations director at Reuters, said: "The widespread adoption of TME 10 is a highly strategic initiative for Reuters.
It will completely standardise the way Reuters delivers and manages its global internal and external IT resources. Reuters' worldwide investment in IT is considerable and consequently the choice of management technology is critical."
