Norwegian Courts Administration extends contract with Logica

The Norwegian Courts Administration has extended its contract with Logica, a part of CGI Group Inc., to 2016.

Under the agreement, CGI will continue to operate the courts' IT platform, including data center, hosting, server operation, application management, telecommunication and general support. The courts' IT platform is used by 2,000 employees in 100 courts across the country.

"Implementation of a new IT platform for the courts has been challenging, requiring significant expertise to succeed in converging new and existing solutions," noted Gisle Eckhoff, CGI's leader in Norway. "The parties have worked constructively and have had close dialogue through challenging periods. It is very gratifying to see that the platform works well and that the Courts Administration has decided to extend the operating agreement. We look forward to continuing the strong collaboration."
