Anaheim Taps HP On IT Modernization


Anaheim, California is going with HP to modernize municipal IT services. The city has signed a $55.8 million contract with the company, which was already handling much of the IT infrastructure there.

Under the five-year contract, which includes a pair of two-year extension options not included in the announced contract value, HP will continue providing a full suite of services for Anaheim’s IT infrastructure. HP also will enhance services with an upgraded disaster recovery solution that will ensure business continuity following a catastrophic event. New services also include infrastructure enhancements designed to accelerate hosting service virtualization, lower power consumption with PC power management and enhance IT security.

The city will also expand its video conferencing capabilities, to provide more video of city meetings. The agreement also includes new web Content Management Services for the city’s internet and intranet sites.

HP will handle all of the city’s data center and mission critical applications. HP also developed and manages the Enterprise Virtual Operations Center (EVOC), a virtual situational awareness system that supports multiple, near real-time data sources for police, fire and emergency management that provides holistic views of all first responder events and improves incident response and management.
