New Zealand : DATACOM wins OPAAS deal

June 17, 2014

Government Chief Information Officer, Colin MacDonald has announced that a new all-of-state office productivity software service will enable agencies to streamline their support systems as they concentrate on transforming their customer services.

The contract for Office Productivity as a Service (OPaaS) has been offered to New Zealand firm Datacom which will initially provide email and calendar services, including archiving and data loss prevention, to state agencies. Other services to be offered include file-sharing, mobility services, instant messaging and collaboration services.

MacDonald said : 'OPaaS is the third building block in a suite of services designed to standardise and simplify ICT management in government agencies, help them work together, and make them more efficient and effective. OPaaS will be hosted in the cloud so agencies will always have access to the newest and most secure software without the need to manage these applications themselves. Agencies only pay for what they need, when they need it, without the need to own and maintain their own infrastructure. This saves money and frees agencies up to focus on creating the services customers want and expect. This is all part of the government's drive to achieve ICT-enbled better public services.'
