Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) Australia is investing $50 million over the next ten years in a new campus in Coniston Technology Park in the Illawarra region.
Spread over 5000 square metres and housing approximately 400 staff, the new campus follows moves by CSC to consolidate different teams and business units, which were previously spread across five locations in the Illawarra region.
According to CSC Australia managing director, Mike Shove, the move will better align the company to continue delivering results for its diverse client base.
"By consolidating our resources under one roof, we now have a truly collaborative, constructive and open culture," he said.
"In addition, this move has streamlined our operations and clients can expect a consistent throughput of products and services."
Shove adds the company's investment reflects CSC's longstanding commitment to the local economy.
"We have a long history in the Illawarra and we are extremely proud to be one of the largest IT employers in the region," he said.
From its Coniston Park office, CSC services multiple clients across Australia and the globe.
The company's primary clients in the Illawarra include BlueScope Steel and BHP Billiton. Other clients include Alcoa, AMP, Aon, AXA, Bank of America, David Jones, Dunn & Bradstreet, Dupont, GE Money, OneSteel, Mastercard, Maybank (Malaysia), Toshiba (Japan), and Victorian WorkCover Authority.
CSC provides infrastructure support and systems integration services to these clients, which includes server and database administration, network management, desktop support, security administration, and application development and support.
Furthering its commitment to the Illawarra region, CSC has initiated an annual graduate intake program.
This year alone, the company took on 50 graduates, seven of whom now work permanently for CSC in the Illawarra.
CSC's new premises are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, such as voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems and a high speed data network.
The sprawling facility also includes new 'test' and 'build' labs, which will enable CSC to test both hardware and software configurations, and to build PCs on site.
The opening of the new campus in the Illawarra is part of CSC's national consolidation campaign and follows the opening of similar campuses at Macquarie Park in Sydney and Subiaco in Perth. CSC also plans to open a new campus in Mawson Lakes in Adelaide in December this year.
