Digital has become the first partner in BT and Microsoft's corporate intranet initiative.
The deal between BT and Microsoft, aimed at providing complete intranet solutions to corporate customers, was announced on 13 November. Last week, with the announcement of Digital's involvement, the service became available in the UK.
"This agreement marks the first real step to introduce complete global intranet solutions to our corporate customers," said Rupert Gavin, director of Internet and multimedia services at BT. "Digital's role is key - together we are responding to demand from businesses that want to build and manage their own intranet solutions today."
The intranet offerings from BT and Microsoft give companies the tools, software and services they need to build intranets, with Web server and security offerings. Digital's role is in two areas.
The company is supplying Alpha and Intel hardware to run the intranets, and, separately, firewall software packages. The company will also, in the future, make the full range of BT/Microsoft intranet services available globally through its services arm.
Digital's involvement in the UK mirrors the company's existing agreement with MCI in the US to deliver similar services. Web server packages from the partners start at #8,000 and security packages are priced from #10,000.
