Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has expanded its systems integrator agreement with leading technology company Cisco, to include Canada. The expansion enables Jacobs to utilise Cisco technology and services to deliver its integrated connectivity solutions to support operations and cost optimisation in oil and gas, mining and chemical facilities. The agreement will also enhance Jacobs’ industrial cybersecurity offerings for clients in Canada. Recent estimates indicate that the value of this market is poised to exceed US$20 billion annually by 2025.
As a result of this agreement, Jacobs will enhance its integrated project solutions which combine Cisco technology with both Jacobs Connected Enterprise (JCE), its digital transformation solution, and Jacobs Process Risk Optimisation (JPRO), its process safety solution.
“This agreement enhances our ability to deliver fully integrated solutions of our growing connected framework to our clients in Canada,” Jacobs President Petroleum and Chemicals Gary Mandel. “By integrating Cisco technology with both our connected enterprise and process risk optimisation frameworks, we are increasing the value we can deliver in sustaining services, program support and capital projects. Jacobs and Cisco clients in Canada will now have access to these integrated solutions.”
JCE is a mature framework of capabilities and solutions that enable digital transformation. It provides clients the capability to connect, protect and analyse operational systems and data. JCE spans several core functional categories, including the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), information technology (IT) and network infrastructure, cloud solutions, data analytics and cyber security.
