Unisys Federal Systems comes to 555 Washington


[St. Louis, Mo., June 24, 2010] Unisys (NYSE: UIS) today announced the creation of a new Application Modernization Center of Excellence (AMCOE) to be based in St. Louis, Missouri.

The center, which is expected to create 300 IT jobs by 2012, will provide a central team of highly skilled experts focused on building, operating, and maintaining innovative, leading-edge software applications for Unisys federal government and commercial clients.

The new center will serve as the core application development hub for Unisys Federal Systems, centralizing application modernization services and support provided for Unisys government clients, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The USDA Rural Development agency recently awarded a contract to Unisys for applications modernization and end user support services to support the full range of the agency’s programs serving the citizens of rural America.

Unisys has begun to hire staff for IT positions in the areas of applications development. Certified developers at the center will also work to develop applications for Apple Mac, Apple iPhone and Apple iPad environments in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. federal government.

“Working with business and labor to create and retain jobs for Missouri has been my primary focus as governor,” said Jay Nixon, Governor of Missouri. “Creation of the Unisys Application Modernization Center of Excellence in St. Louis, which is expected to create hundreds of IT jobs in the city, is an important step forward in our commitment to attracting sustainable, living-wage jobs to our state. Unisys has a strong and established IT presence within our state, and we are pleased that they have chosen to grow their business here in Missouri.”
