Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Selects Unisys Private Cloud Solution to Host Managed Services

BLUE BELL, Pa., April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) has awarded a five-year, $20 million contract to Unisys Corporation UIS, +1.74% to provide a private cloud solution.
