Data#3 and Victoria SES Take Emergency Services to the Cloud

April 7, 2017; Melbourne, Australia: Data#3, a leading Australian technology provider, today announced the successful deployment and adoption of a Hybrid Cloud solution, including Microsoft’s Public Cloud, within the Victoria State Emergency Service (VIC SES).

Helping to improve emergency planning and response, VIC SES is the first emergency services organisation in Australia to entrust their core infrastructure to a Cloud-based solution. This is a significant step for an organisation that provides state-wide emergency assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The new platform enables VIC SES to be more agile and efficient in responding to critical incidents and emergencies, whether it’s bushfires, floods, storms, road rescues or search and rescue operations.

Andrew Ferrarese, Manager Information Services, VIC SES, commented, “The new technology gives our people in the field quick and easy access to our systems, which is so important when it comes to reporting incidents and emergency information. Whether it’s providing location data for response coordination or assessing potential threats, our new ICT environment plays a crucial role in minimising risk to the community.”

Data#3 was chosen as VIC SES’s preferred partner primarily due to their Microsoft capabilities and Azure expertise, as well as their experience in the Victorian Emergency Management landscape, where several agencies entrust their critical infrastructure to them. The contract also includes a three-year support plan for Managed Services.

Data#3 Chief Executive Officer, Laurence Baynham, commented, “Data#3 is immensely proud to assist VIC SES with Cloud related services to improve the provision of critical emergency services in Victoria. Our vision is to harness the power of people and technology for a better future – and this is a great example of our expertise making a difference in our communities.”
