The project is in partnership with Hewlett-Packard and IPMC, a local IT service provider.
The company announced this September 29, 2012 after it signed a three-year deal to manage Ghana’s e-project on behalf of the National Information Technology Agency (NITA).
“Alcatel-Lucent will work with local IT hardware and services provider, IPMC, to establish a large-scale data center using state-of-the-art data center, server and storage infrastructure from HP, which will host all of the e-Government project information,” it said in a statement.
It will also host a Genesys helpdesk solution, a performance rating platform and e-learning systems from Saba.

William Tevie, Director General of NITA was quoted as saying “By delivering a new network and data center, Alcatel-Lucent will enable us to streamline government processes between central and rural divisions and provide a consistent external view. This is an important step toward realizing the vision of giving our people access to a range of critical services how and when they need them.”
Alcatel-Lucent will also train NITA’s employees to ensure a seamless transfer of knowledge so that the NITA teams can take over the full network operation responsibility by the end of the three-year period.
