Acxiom To Provide Exelon Information Technology Services

Acxiom IT (Nasdaq: ACXM), a provider of infrastructure management solutions, today announced that it has been selected by leading U.S. competitive energy provider Exelon to manage the organization’s Information Technology and disaster recovery environments that support several mission critical applications.

Acxiom won a competitive procurement process involving several major service providers based on its 40+ year history of managing large, highly complex mainframe environments and its ability to deliver cost efficiencies. Acxiom will manage 3,000 mainframe MIPS (million instructions per second) from its Chicago and Conway area data centers.

“Exelon was looking for a partner that could support our company’s mainframe capacity and service level requirements at a favorable cost.  Based on the combined cost and service level advantages, Exelon has awarded a multi-year contract to Acxiom for outsourcing all mainframe services,” said Tom Clewett, vice president and chief technology officer, Exelon.

“Acxiom continues to invest in mainframe talent, processes and partnerships to ensure we are delivering superior services and cost-savings to clients,” said Kevin Zaffaroni, senior vice president, Acxiom IT. “We are thrilled to add Exelon to our family of clients and look forward to helping them achieve their objectives and building a lasting relationship.”
