Tech consultant CSC lands $360 million Sun deal

Computer Sciences Corp. will manage internal business systems applications for Sun Microsystems.

Computer Sciences Corp. has signed a five year, $360 million information technology services deal to run and maintain Sun Microsystems' IT infrastructure worldwide.

Under the agreement, El Segundo, Calif.-based CSC will provide software tools and support services for a variety of Sun's internal business activities such as finance, manufacturing, messaging, enterprise management, customer relations and data warehousing.

"It is no surprise that flexibility is one of the greatest competitive weapons in the IT industry. CSC will help us achieve this nimbleness and ensure that Sun's IT infrastructure is run as effectively as any company on the planet," Sun Chief Information Officer Bill Vass, said in a statement. "We will operate at lower cost and with more flexibility to respond to market dynamics."

In recent months, CSC has bagged several major technology services contracts, including one with Ascension Health, valued up to $1.35 billion. It also landed a $52 million pact to evaluate and support biometric technology for the U.S. Department of Defense.
