Nationwide Building Taps Unisys

SWINDON, U.K. -- Three services and technology initiatives recently undertaken with Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS) by the United Kingdoms largest building society, Nationwide, are bringing the building society marked cost efficiencies and operational benefits. Unisys is helping Nationwide, a long-time customer, overhaul key IT infrastructure, including storage and mainframes.

The initiatives include:

  • An upgrade for ClearPath Dorado mainframes in Nationwide’s Swindon technology centre and Wellingborough development and disaster recovery centre; and
