Shire of Esperance picks Civica cloud

The Shire of Esperance (WA) is now using the recently launched Civica cloud platform for a range of major applications.

Civica is a long established supplier of information systems to local governments. More recently, it started offering outsourced business processes, and last month launched a Citrix and FlexPod based cloud service for local authorities.

Esperance runs a wide range of applications on the service, including Authority Enterprise Suite, HP TRIM, Cadcorp, Amlib, Infocouncil, Microsoft Office and Exchange, and Symantec Enterprise Vault.

An expectation of reduced performance sometimes discourages organisations from taking advantage of cloud systems, but Esperance's experience was very different.

"Since moving to the new Civica cloud we have noticed a major improvement to the user and performance experience," said Shire IT manager Sean Kenny.

The cloud migration was performed over a weekend to avoid disruption to services.

Civica managing director of local government solutions Michael Preedy said, "Local government organisations today are under increasing pressure to improve service delivery whilst keeping costs down...

"Our new cloud offering will provide local government with all the benefits of an integrated, enterprise solution capable of providing consistent, accurate data to all parts of the organisation while at the same time mitigating risk by utilising the latest technology data centre infrastructure backed by Equinix."

Civica's cloud platform is located at Equinix's Sydney data centre.
