news The NSW Department of Trade and Investment has signalled plans to continue shifting more of its IT assets to cloud computing platforms as part of a “journey” away from managing and owning its own infrastructure, in the wake of the successful deployment of a wide-ranging ERP platform based on a SAP software as a service solution.
In July 2012, the department announced it would transition its legacy ERP systems including 16 agencies – totalling over 8,500 employees – onto a single, consolidated SAP cloud platform. The agency expected to deliver savings of more than $12.5 million annually by enabling greater efficiencies across the entire organisation. At the time, SAP said the deal represented its largest Business ByDesign win globally, and the first cloud platform win in the Australian public sector. Subsequently, in August 2013, the department claimed initial success in the project, claiming that so far the project has been delivered “on time and on budget”, but with a large chunk of the work still to go.
The rollout was significant because it was one of the first major known cloud computing projects carried out by the NSW State Government. Like other states such as Victoria and Queensland, NSW has suffered problems with IT project and service delivery and consequently has shifted to a “cloud-first” IT deployment model, in an attempt to avoid major IT project failures such as have occurred in the past, and make its IT operations more nimble, functional, standardised and efficient.
In new tenders document issued yesterday, the department noted that it wanted to push its cloud journey further. The tender documents defined the department’s requirements for the provision of a cloud-based solution with two outcomes: “Move current development and test workloads to an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform and develop an automatically replicated disaster recovery solution with stand-by (powered off) replicas on the IaaS platform.” Continue…
