Harris Corporation announced that it has strategically realigned its operating businesses to “provide increased market focus and address the fast-growing global market for integrated communications and information technology and services.”

Under the company’s previous structure, Harris had three operating divisions: RF Communications, Government Communications Systems, and Broadcast Communications.  Under the new structure Harris retains three business units, but has added a new division called Integrated Network Solutions (ISN), which includes the broadcast business.

In addition to broadcast communications, the new ISN segment includes the Harris IT Services, Harris CapRock Communications, Healthcare Solutions, and Cyber Integrated Solutions businesses (all of which were previously part of the Government Communications Systems segment).  

The company says that its new ISN segment will provide IT services, managed services, cyber integration, interoperability, imaging, and digital media management solutions to support government, energy, healthcare, broadcast, and enterprise networks.  It will build on the company’s strengths in established markets, while extending its reach into new markets, including healthcare, energy, cloud computing, sports, entertainment, and retail venues.  

Harris Corp. EVP and COO Dan Pearson has been named acting group president of the new segment. He had this to say about the new ISN business unit: “Commercial businesses and government customers around the globe are increasingly seeking total solutions – combining innovative technology with managed services.  With a flexible technology and managed services approach, Integrated Network Solutions is uniquely positioned to create tailored end-to-end solutions for customers seeking a trusted communications and IT partner.”

Harris says it will begin reporting financial results under the new segment structure effective with its third quarter of fiscal 2011.
