Unisys partners with Invictus Games
The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and ill service men and women, both active duty and veteran. The Games use the healing power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and celebrate the crucial role played by family members and friends. The fourth Games will be held in Sydney from 20–27 October and attract 500 competitors from 18 nations to compete in 11 medal sports.
“Partnering with Invictus Games Sydney 2018 is a natural extension of our commitment to support defence organisations and service personnel. We work with Soldier On to help ex-service personnel find employment opportunities as they return to civilian life and approximately 15% of the Unisys team who provide field IT support to our clients in Australia and New Zealand are ex-service personnel or reservists,” said Tony Windever, Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Unisys.
“We also provide IT support to approximately 450 defence locations across Australia. I, and the rest of the Unisys team, am honoured to be involved with the Games and we look forward to witnessing the unconquerable spirit of the competitors.”
Under the partnership, Unisys will build and support the technology infrastructure at Victoria Barracks, Sydney Olympic Park and Games venues as well as provide information security using Unisys Stealth software and services.
Invictus Games Sydney 2018 Head of Technology James Smith expressed his appreciation for Unisys’s support of the Games.
“With proven experience providing IT support to defence and other critical organisations, Unisys is the ideal partner for Invictus Games Sydney 2018. In addition, Unisys’s commitment to the defence community means there is a strong cultural alignment between our organisations that we feel is critical to helping ensure the successful delivery of the Games,” said Smith.
