January, 22, 2018; Brisbane, Australia: Leading Australian technology provider, Data#3, has won a competitive public tender to create and manage a cloud-based file sharing and community collaboration solution for the Department of Finance (“The Department”).

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 Officer and Managing Director, Laurence Baynham, commented, “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 will 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.
