CSC Counters Spam 2006-10-04T19:41:00Z csc-counters-spam Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) has acted to protect its 4,000 email users from spam and email-borne viruses by implementing a new security solution. CSC has selected MessageLabs entire suite of Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus and Image Control products to control spam. Emily Richmond-Jones, CIO, CSC Australia said, Our employees work in locations across the country, from open mine shafts to oil rigs, and accessing emails remotely is a normal part of their working day. To safeguard our users against threats, we needed to provide them with an Internet-based solution to protect their emails from viruses and incoming spam. Ms Richmond-Jones said prior to deploying the MessageLabs solution, CSC had three IT resources focused on releasing quarantined emails. Now we use one solution and our spam levels have since decreased to insignificant levels, enabling us to free up resources, decrease bandwidth costs and redirect infrastructure to other projects, she said. CSC previously experienced 49 per cent spam levels for incoming emails, which had a direct impact on IT resources and end user productivity. Ms Richmond-Jones said the MessageLabs solution offers a safeguard against all threats by stopping malicious content at the Internet level. This means virus and spam storms are stopped before they reach the corporate gateway. Also outbound emails are scanned to ensure that they do not contain potential viruses which could impact the operations of clients. James Scollay, vice president for MessageLabs Asia Pacific, said, Many companies want a simple, yet effective method for controlling viruses and spam because these threats can be moving targets. MessageLabs is in a unique position to hit the moving target and ensure organisations are protected against unknown viruses and evolving spam attacks because of our Skeptic technology and our ability to scan 1 billion emails a week at the Internet level. MessageLabs managed service approach provides organisations with a complete managed security solution, without the hassle, inconvenience or additional costs of traditional software or hardware solutions. These solutions ensure the integrity of electronic communications, helping businesses to manage and reduce risk while securing their critical infrastructure and business information. CSC is a major IT services provider to Federal and State government agencies throughout Australia. It also supports commercial clients including Allianz, AMP, BHP Billiton and the Victorian Workcover Authority. About MessageLabs MessageLabs is the world's leading provider of messaging security and management services with more than 12,000 clients and offices in eight countries.

CSC APPOINTS 20-YEAR AEROSPACE VETERAN TO HEAD UP DEFENCE SECTOR SALES 2006-03-02T19:31:00Z csc-appoints-20-year-aerospace-veteran-to-head-up-defence-sector-sales With more than 20 years experience in the global aerospace industry, Simon Carrs expertise and depth of knowledge will be invaluable to Computer Sciences Corporations efforts in the Australian defence sector, said CEO Mike Shove. Welcoming Carr to the position of general manager, defence at the company, Shove said that his experience and sales acumen will help drive CSCs strategic relationships within the defence sector and provide the depth of knowledge and skills necessary to provide that sector with the best ICT solutions available. Carr started his career with BAE Systems in the UK in 1982, holding executive sales and marketing positions. Carr spent 3 years in the US and on his return undertook various mergers and acquisitions activities, spending time in China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Europe. On moving back to the UK, he entered defence marketing and established operations in central Europe as many of these countries joined NATO. He was then appointed executive vice president Europe defence marketing and the head of sales, for the Gripen fighter plane, a joint aircraft venture with Saab of Sweden. His last role at BAE was Commercial Director of the newly formed Shared Services organisation that covered IT, HR, payroll, procurement, research &amp; technology and property functions, along with some corporate management functions.

FIRST MAJOR AUSTRALIAN IT OUTSOURCER<BR> TO BE CERTIFIED IN GLOBALLY RECOGNISED STANDARD FOR IT SERVICE MANAGEMENT 2006-01-16T20:59:00Z first-major-australian-it-outsourcer-br-to-be-certified-in-globally-recognised-standard-for-it-service-management CSC Australia is the first major IT outsourcing organisation in Australia to achieve the AS8018.1-2004 Standard for IT Service Management. AS8018.1-2004 (equivalent to the British BS15000) is derived from the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), which is recognised as industry best practice for IT Service Management. AS8018.1-2004 is a world wide standard that recognises an organisation has established an integrated set of management processes for the effectivedelivery of services to its customers. During September and early October 2005, Lloyds Register Quality Assurance conducted assessments across CSC globally. As part of this, CSC Australia was assessed against ISO 9001:2000 and A8018.1-2004. The assessment involved the review of CSC Australias Leadership, Account Management, Global Infrastructure Services and Global Transformation Solutions practices. Discussing the significance of this announcement, Mike Shove, CEO, CSC Australia, stated: This certification highlights CSCs ability to provide customers with a set of management processes for the effective delivery of services. As the first major IT outsourcer in Australia to be certified it provides a significant benefit to current and potential customers as the ITIL push grows within the industry. As demonstrated in Europe there are increasing pressures on service providers to become A8018.1-2004 certified,&quot; said Steve Bittinger, Research Director, Gartner. &quot;The same pressures are beginning to resonate here in Australia. CSC has taken the lead in becoming the first large scale Australian IT service provider to become certified.&quot; This new certificate represents another significant step in CSCs plans to have all services certified globally. CSC already holds certificates covering India and the UK and plans to cover its main centres of business in Europe by 2006 followed the US. CSC believes it is unique in the IT Service Industry in its approach of certifying all services in a region rather than cherry-picking specific functions or customers to be assessed.

Majority of Companies Report Supply Chain Gains According to CSC Survey 2005-11-22T20:01:00Z majority-of-companies-report-supply-chain-gains-according-to-csc-survey For the first time in recent years, companies report that they are overcoming obstacles to supply chain advancement and making significant strides toward their supply chain goals, according to the third annual Global Survey of Supply Chain Progress from Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) and Supply Chain Management Review. Key reasons for progress include emphasis on strategy development and process improvement. The survey indicates that 38 percent of respondents now develop and execute supply chain strategy at the division or business unit level, versus only 18 percent in 2004. Forty-nine percent say supply chain strategy is aligned with corporate strategy and 57 percent say it is being reviewed formally every year. &quot;There is growing evidence that supply chain is gaining the attention of executive management as a critical business driver,&quot; said Donna Watt, Senior Consultant, Supply Chain practice, CSC Australia. &quot;There is also proof that companies are using the results from their improved operations to generate revenue increases.&quot; According to this year's survey, 61 percent of respondents have achieved reductions in supply chain costs from one to 10 percent, and an additional 13 percent have saved 11 to 20 percent. Furthermore, 52 percent indicated they increased revenue by one to 10 percent, and another 11 percent said they have enjoyed increases from 11 to 20 percent or more. &quot;These combined figures provide solid evidence that serious attention to supply chain management can bring as much as eight points of new profit to a firm's financial statements,&quot; said Watt. These gains mirror progress along what Donna Watt describes as the &quot;Five Levels of Supply Chain Evolution.&quot; Ranging from the lowest (level 1 - &quot;Enterprise Integration&quot;) to the highest (level 5 - &quot;Full Network Connectivity&quot;), the levels enable quick snapshots of current operating mode and help benchmark progress. Levels 1 and 2 reflect states in which supply chain efforts are limited to within the company. Level 3 denotes the beginning of external collaboration and, thus, key process improvements with business partners. This year, 50 percent of respondents indicated their progress is beyond level 2 -- a 10 percent increase over last year. &quot;In previous reports on this survey, I have noted that while significant business benefits had been achieved, the full potential remained largely untapped for most,&quot; said Watt. &quot;It appears I can no longer make that assertion. Too many companies in multiple industries are now gathering the fruits of their supply chain efforts.&quot; The survey shows that although the most significant progress has come through strategy development, many firms continue to rely on technology -- primarily enterprise resource planning, e-procurement, inventory planning, Web-based applications, warehouse management systems and advanced planning systems -- to achieve supply chain advancement. Additionally, radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, which went nearly unnoticed in last year's survey, was included among technologies driving results by 16 percent of the respondents. Thirty-one percent of companies surveyed indicated interest in investing in this emerging technology, moving from almost no plans in the previous year. Although half of the companies responding say they have entered level 3 or higher, collaborating more effectively -- both internally and externally -- is still one of the major problems confronting the supply chain professional, said Watt. &quot;For example, when we inquired if the company had a standardised, enterprise-wide bill of material that was shared with tier 1 supply chain and design partners, 75 percent said 'no,'&quot; she said. &quot;This finding alludes to the fact that they are still struggling with the ways and means to achieve their goals.&quot; Conducted this summer, the 2005 Global Survey of Supply Chain Progress was sent to supply chain professionals in North America, Europe and selected countries around the world. The names were drawn from readers of Supply Chain Management Review and other publications of Reed Business Information, as well as clients of CSC. A total of 123 respondents completed the comprehensive, eight-page questionnaire. The majority of responses came from North America, mainly the United States. Eighteen industries were represented, ranging from aerospace and defense to retail and consumer-packaged goods to high technology and telecommunications. Organisationally, 62 percent of the respondents represented corporate entities; 19 percent were from wholly-owned subsidiaries or strategic business units; and 19 percent were from groups or multiple divisions. The survey report, which includes the complete set of questions and responses, and an executive summary, can be found at http://www.csc.com/solutions/supplychainmanagement/cs05survey_results.pdf.

CSC Wins Australian Navy Helicopter Contract 2002-03-11T16:31:00Z csc-wins-australian-navy-helicopter-contract Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by Kaman Aerospace International to develop tactical system software for the Royal Australian Navy's (RAN) 11 new SH-2G(A) Super Seasprite Helicopters. Under the contract, to be completed by 2004, CSC will develop and integrate avionics software to control the onboard radar, infra-red and electronic warfare systems, as well as the range of maritime weapons carried by the helicopter.

The helicopters will operate from the RAN's ANZAC class frigates and will be based at HMAS Albatross, near Nowra. CSC Defence General Manager Grant Dreghorn says the software will create one of the most advanced tactical avionics systems carried in maritime helicopters. &quot;The aircraft software is being designed to specific RAN operational requirements and will allow the two crew members to achieve a higher level of sensor management, tactical awareness and weapon deployment than has traditionally been possible in helicopters of this size,&quot; he says. &quot;The award of the contract highlights the successful relationship between CSC and Kaman, acknowledging CSC's real-time combat system software development capability and signalling a commitment to indigenous whole-of-life support of the RAN Super Seasprite helicopter. CSC already provides training and support systems for the RAN Super Seasprite Helicopter Program. These systems include a full mission flight simulator, six avionics system part task trainers, a mission planning system, mission debrief system, and software support centre.
