Unisys Receives "Customer Obsession" Recognition from Amazon Web Services for Leadership in Government Cloud Services
Award underscores Unisys "firsts" in moving federal agencies to the cloud
BLUE BELL, Pa., December 17, 2014 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced it was recognized by Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a "Customer Obsession" honoree for excellence in providing AWS services and solutions to customers.
Unisys was cited for its work with AWS offering cloud solutions to government clients including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Department of the Interior. These and other Unisys customers were among the first government agencies to obtain the efficiencies and cost savings of the cloud.
Each year, AWS recognizes a select group of partners that reflect the principle of customer obsession. As stated in the company's 14 leadership principles: "Customer Obsession Leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although leaders pay attention to competitors, they obsess over customers."
The recognition from AWS is the latest of several achievements and firsts by Unisys in the area of cloud hosting:
- Unisys won three of the first task orders awarded under the Department of the Interior's $10 billion cloud hosting contract, including the very first task order to move DOI's SAP-based Financial and Business Management System to the cloud – a first in the federal government.
- Unisys is working with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide secure hybrid cloud-based services to state agencies in what is reportedly the largest state government cloud in the United States.
- Unisys performed the first cloud migration of email and collaboration services for an entire federal agency with the General Services Administration. The company subsequently migrated employees at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Energy Idaho National Laboratory and the National Archives and Records Administration.
"Unisys has been at the forefront in helping agencies throughout the federal government move to the cloud," said Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada, acting president, Unisys Federal Systems. "We are honored by the recognition by AWS of our leadership, innovation and focus on our government cloud customers."
