Technology solutions provider Data#3 has won a contract to create and manage a cloud-based file sharing and community collaboration solution for Australia’s Department of Finance.  

Data#3 was awarded the contract after a competitive public tender process.

Based on Microsoft Azure and Office 365, the new customised cloud service will replace the existing Govdex whole-of-government platform, which has amassed over 90,000 users since its establishment.

Data#3 chief executive and managing director Laurence Baynham said, “We are delighted to work with the Department of Finance on this innovative initiative. It is a great example of how leveraging people and technology can help to drive digital transformation in the public sector. We look forward to assisting the Department in achieving their business goals.”

The new Govdex solution is designed to help the department to achieve three key objectives:

  • Enable greater interconnectivity, file sharing and collaboration between government agencies and organisations across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors;
  • Deliver cost savings to participating agencies through coordinating Government activity and economies of scale; and
  • Provide a trusted environment for government to collaborate with internal and external parties.

Data #3 says the cloud service will provide a single point for government employees and industry partners to collaborate, allowing them to share files, host discussion groups, manage tasks, conduct video broadcasts, run polls, translate messages in real-time, and work with users worldwide.
