SECURE INFORMATION SYSTEMS, SUN AND SYBASE WIN ROYAL ORDNANCE AMANDA PACT

By CBR Staff Writer

The Secure Information Systems Ltd joint venture between SD-Scicon Plc and British Telecommunications Plc is celebrating a UKP1.5m systems integration procurement from the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, for ammunitions depots throughout the UK and West Germany. The Fleet, Hampshire-based company won the Amanda contract – that’s Ammunition Management Area Network Depot Assistance System – as the prime contractor of a consortium including Sybase and Sun Microsystems. Two other consortia Bull HN Information Systems with Logica and Oracle, and ICL with Ingres and DM England – were competing for the business. Amanda will take about a year to implement in the Sybase APT Tools generator, and will be a highly distributed system running on 12 Sun Sparc-based 4/330 systems and Unix laptops from Bull’s Zenith Data Systems. Secure Information Systems claims its use of the Prompt and SSADM methadologies for the project management and design were key to winning the contract, which aims to link ammunitions depots to the Ordnance Corps’ central systems at Bicester and Rheindahlen. The new systems will replace a micro-based stock control system, which is said to rely too heavily on paper to carry out the depot tasks.
