Information Management and Governance (IMG) specialist, iCognition Pty Ltd, and NSW Government technology specialist Counterparts Technology announced today that they have teamed up to deliver NSW Government agencies with an Electronic Data Records Management System (EDRMS) Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) located in secure, robust and fully managed cloud infrastructure at GovDC.
Called EDRMSaaS.Cloud in GovDC, the service provides a winning combination of three fully managed components: cost-effective, best of breed performance cloud in GovDC delivered by Counterparts; Micro Focus’ proven Content Manager intelligent compliance engine; and iCognition’s award-winning products maximising discovery, access, sharing and collaboration, for both desktop and mobile users.
“NSW Government prefers to have their cloud services based in GovDC to ensure high-quality digital services that are secure, value for money and environmentally friendly. Now, with EDRMSaaS.Cloud in GovDC, agencies have access to a secure content management cloud service that meets NSW Government standards,” said Nigel Carruthers-Taylor, iCognition Executive Director.
“For Counterparts, this partnership extends our hybrid infrastructure offerings. Effective data management relies on a structured data classification process and understanding the obligations and options available for management. Balancing cost, performance and ease of management can be challenging, as the volumes and data sources that need to be managed are always increasing,” said Mr Cameron Cumming, Client Engagement Director at Counterparts Technology
In addition to providing a cost-effective secure content management service for new NSW Government customers, EDRMSaaS.Cloud in GovDC provides an easy path for agencies with existing Micro Focus Content Manager / TRIM systems to transition to a cloud service.
“Our track record in transitioning clients and providing the benefits of the cloud is well proven. For instance iCognition successfully transitioned 2100 TRIM users at the University of NSW to EDRMSaaS.Cloud. We consistently meet all Service Level Agreements, including the availability SLA,” said Mr Carruthers-Taylor.
Other iCognition EDRMSaaS.Cloud clients include Tasmanian Department of Primary Industry, Parks, Water and the Environment (1400 users), where the partnership was secured through an exhaustive open tender process, and Perpetual Limited, which was achieved after iCognition consultants undertook an Information Management & Governance strategic review. Additionally, iCognition have been engaged by small to medium organisations such as the Canberra-Goulburn Catholic Education Office, and The GeoGroup Australia, one of Australia’s largest correctional services providers.
“The range of clients moving to the cloud proves that not only does scale not matter, but organisations from all market sectors are keen to secure cloud benefits. Having been in the field for over 20 years, this transformation is really exciting. Cloud services are the biggest game-changer since document management went electronic. However, there is no substitute for experience, quality of platforms and capability, like iCognition and Counterparts are providing,” said Mr Joe Mammoliti, iCognition CEO.
Counterparts Technology provides consulting and professional services in hybrid infrastructure and security solutions and assists a number of NSW Government Agencies with secure data management and migration services.
“We are seeing an increase in clients preferring to engage with this consortia model as we can leverage the collective specialist skills within an agile approach. This partnership brings together the right skills to remediate real data management issues for Government agencies”. said Matt Wynn-Jones, Managing Director at Counterparts Technology.
“EDRMSaaS.Cloud is a secure information management platform that will take the pressure off your digital transformation team. It is the modern way to harness the information explosion, secure your content, meet your compliance/regulatory requirements, improve operational efficiency and lower your total cost of ownership with a simple monthly per-user cost,” said Mr Mammoliti. “You will get a user-friendly EDRMS, on-demand access on any device, with intelligent analytics and governance, managed to the highest standards in a Government assured secure cloud.”
