Transpower taps UXC Red Rock to support its national grid services

12 May 2015 - UXC Red Rock to apply innovative Managed Services Framework to deliver strategic Oracle Database, MS SQL Database, Oracle Application Middleware and Midrange Server Services and Support


Infrastructure supporting Transpower New Zealand’s national electricity grid and high voltage transmission network will now be managed and monitored by UXC Red Rock Consulting (UXC Red Rock), Oracle’s leading integration partner across Australia and New Zealand.

UXC Red Rock now has a multi-year arrangement to monitor and support all of Transpower’s Oracle databases, Microsoft SQL databases, Oracle application middleware servers and mid-range servers, including consulting and project services for implementing these technologies.

UXC Red Rock secured the contract due to its breadth of delivery, innovative approach and alignment with Transpower’s fundamental service principles. Additionally, with a 15 year history of managing application support for Transpower, UXC Red Rock understands the business imperatives Transpower works to and the required synergies between development and operations.

Jonathan Rubinsztein, CEO and founder of UXC Red Rock said at the heart of its delivery to Transpower is the strong alignment of the core values of each organisation and the correlation of UXC Red Rock values to Transpower’s Partnering Charter.

“Our aim is to achieve the right service and business results for Transpower,” said Rubinsztein. “And we will do so under an innovative and mutually beneficial approach to partnering where we are measured by success of agreed joint outcomes.”

Transpower’s General Manager IST, Cobus Nel, said that while the UXC Red Rock team already play an integral role in providing critical applications support, Transpower is pleased to extend its partnership with UXC Red Rock to cover database and mid-range server support. He attributed UXC Red Rock’s success to the team’s ability to establish a client-supplier relationship tailored towards Transpower’s needs.

UXC Red Rock’s services will be delivered via a hybrid onsite-offsite model and will support both the existing environments operated by Transpower as well as planning for growth, design and implementation of any change to these environments.
