Proact signs multiyear storage agreement with Vattenfall

Vattenfall has selected Proact IT Group AB as its main supplier of storage solutions, including support and services.

Following an international tender procedure, Proact has signed a framework agreement with Vattenfall to deliver storage solutions and related products and services. The agreement follows an international tender process and covers multiple years, with options for extension up to seven years.

The agreement with Proact is based on the storage strategy devised by Vattenfall. The strategy targets significant cost savings, to be achieved through measures including coordination of various data storage solutions used by Vattenfall in its regional markets. A key component of this strategy is the concept of Data Classes, applied to categorize enterprise data. The main principle is to select and apply storage solutions based on the demands for availability on each piece of data and its value for the enterprise.

“The renewed and extended trust we have received from Vattenfall means much to Proact, and not just because this is an important deal for us,” says Martin Ödman, CEO and President, Proact IT Group. “The emphasis on requirements for expertise in Vattenfall’s Storage tender is especially gratifying. This highlights Proact’s determined efforts to empower our technology staff with certifications for key technologies, and that these are clearly valued by the most demanding customers, which effectively makes our organization and offering more competitive.”

In Vattenfall’s Storage tender, a key requirement on suppliers was to offer documented technology expertise for the entire range of data storage systems and products used within Vattenfall. Proact has met these skills requirements using internal resources only. To deliver on the assignments for Vattenfall, Proact will utilize its international presence.
