SELEX Elsag (ELSAG, Italy)

The organisation:
ElsagDatamat SpA is an Italian company that works as system integrator in different markets (telecommunication, service providers, government, banking and insurance, defence).

It stems from the merge of two major Italian players named Elsag SpA and Datamat SpA. Elsag had been founded in 1905 in Genoa while Datamat had been founded in 1975 in Rome. Both of them work in the Italian IT market. They merged in 2006 and now they are one of the biggest IT companies.

Elsag Datamat is part of Finmeccanica group, one of the world's leading industrial conglomerates. The professional skills of 4,000 employees, technology, know-how, the capacity to operate in critical contexts, and an innovative approach demonstrated by constant investment in R&D, are just some of the distinctive features developed over more than a century in business.

In Telecommunications industries, Elsag Datamat addresses operators of fixed and mobile voice, data and video networks with a wide-range offering: from consultancy to System Integration. Elsag Datamat has intense R&D activities and has been extensively involved in European research programs and has a strong background in Management and Network Management.

Together with the above capabilities, Elsag Datamat includes in its portfolio several solutions for delivering services based upon SOA infrastructures and it offers to its customers solutions and services for monitoring and managing complex infrastructures such as communication and power supply.
