The Office of the Comptroller of the CurrencyÂ has awarded UnisysÂ (NYSE: UIS) a potential five-year, $11.2 million contract to move approximately 4, 000 OCC employeesÂ to a cloud-based email platform.
Unisys said Thursday it will provideÂ analysis, design, transition planning and development services intended to facilitateÂ OCC’sÂ enterprise-wideÂ cloud migration effort.
