Kuwait’s Public Warehousing Company (PWC) Logistics is overhauling its IT infrastructure with a roll-out of Computer Associates’ (CA) flagship Unicenter software suite across its operations. The deal will also see PWC’s newly-established IT services arm implement Unicenter in its Kuwait customs office project. According to Ghassan Farra, chief information officer at PWC Logistics, the company has been using some Unicenter products for five years. The new deal will see it now implement the full range of Unicenter products, including database monitoring and data management tools. “We’ve been using Unicenter for a long time now and we liked what we have, so it made sense to extend it,” he claimed. PWC has made a number of acquisitions globally in the past year, and needed to improve its IT infrastructure to help support its overseas operations, Farra said. “This implementation will help us manage our infrastructure worldwide,” he claimed. As well as implementing a number of modules from CA’s BrightStor storage products, PWC has added support for users to backup data from different input devices, such as laptops and desktops, to the storage area network (SAN). “That was essential for many of our users to allow them to save important documents,” Farra said. Including licence and implementation costs, the project will cost up to US$200,000, he added. The project is ex-pected to be completed by the end of October. Additionally, PWC Technology will implement Unicenter as part of its work in providing IT systems for Kuwait’s customs operations. This project will effectively see PWC Technology implement IT systems from scratch for the customs operations, which previously relied on manual documentation.
