Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Siemens Business Services has won the tender to upgrade the IT at the National Assembly of Wales. The gig will be performed by a consortium including PA Consulting, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and Siemens Communications. It runs for 10 years and is worth £200 million.

According to SBS, the contract is unusual in "covering the Welsh Whitehall and the Welsh Westminster at the same time". It says that the vast bulk of the IT requirement will support the adminstrative work of the Welsh Assembly government. But there's a sexy e-democracy element too, with SBS upgrading the support services to the democratic structures of the Assembly, "itself one of the leading legislatures in adopting electronic democracy". ®
