CIMCORP will be working in close co-ordination with Cisco in order to upgrade CEMIG's IT infrastructure and complex datacenter related solutions. CEMIG's network has approximately 10,000 points, so the first phase of this upgrade involves the installation of Cisco switches in various configurations in order to meet CEMIG's demands for a seamlessly integrated environment across its operations in Brazil.
"We are pleased to announce that our CIMCORP brand was chosen by CEMIG for this strategic project", stated Nana Baffour, CEO and Co-Founder of Midas Medici. "We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with CEMIG and were recently selected as the only IT company to receive CEMIG's Supplier Award earlier this year. As one of the largest utilities in the country, CEMIG's decision to select us for this $3 million project is a validator of the quality of our IT integration expertise and highly responsive implementation and project management capabilities in Brazil."
The entire IT infrastructure and data center upgrade will be implemented by CIMCORP and Cisco and will be primarily focused on CEMIG's headquarters in Minas Gerais, Brazil, with satellite work being conducted at the company's various locations throughout the country. The project is scheduled to be completed by January 2012.
"This is a significant upgrade for our organisation so we wanted to be certain to choose the right company for the job. We were pleased to see CIMCORP come away from the competitive bidding process as the winner, since we can always rely on CIMCORP to meet our precise contract needs, both in terms of due dates and quality, and their project management reputation in Brazil is second to none", stated Wander Jose Eustaquio de Oliveira Junior, Manager of Materials and Services Quality at CEMIG.
