NSW Government names consortium to build new 'Identity hub'

Dataweave, Qubit Consulting, Oracle Australia and NTT Communications make up team

Oracle, NTT Communications and dataweave have formed an 'Idenity Hub Consortium' to provide the NSW Government with a solution to manage user identities across the state's enterprise resources.

The new Identity Management project will manage the end-to-end lifecycle of user identities across all NSW Government enterprise resources, both within the firewall and beyond into the cloud.

This is expected to allow the NSW Government to enhance service delivery, streamline Government work practices, and reduce costs.

The Identity Hub consortium comprises Dataweave, Qubit Consulting, Oracle Australia and NTT Communications.

Dataweave managing director, Norman Weaver, said large organisations often faced serious challenges when managing user access to IT systems and data.

"The NSW Government Identity Hub will make it possible to streamline the administration of user accounts and passwords, while creating a better user experience and tightening security."

Dataweave will provide consulting, project management, systems integration and ongoing 24 x 7 support services for the Identity Hub service.

Qubit Consulting will assist with specialist identity management systems consulting and expertise.

The Identity Hub will be hosted within NSW Government's new GovDC data centres located at Silverwater and Unanderra.

This will be provided on a new Infrastructure as a Service platform provided by NTT Communications, using Oracle hardware.

The technology platform will be highly secure and ISO 27001 compliant.

The Identity Hub is intended to improve overall IT security across NSW Government, while providing a better user experience.

This will be achieved through the use of a federated Identity Management framework delivered via a Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture.

The Identity Hub will be based on Oracle Identity Management, Oracle Enterprise Data Quality, Oracle Advanced Security, Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall and Oracle Data Masking products.

The solution is designed to extend seamlessly out into the public cloud, allowing businesses and citizens accessing government services to be incorporated into the solution.

It is hoped, the use of a fully managed SaaS deployment model will allow greater scalability, removing the pain and complexity of disconnected user account administration and password management for NSW Government agencies.

Dataweave offers a range of 24 x 7 remotely managed support services for enterprise applications and database technologies, and has an extensive track record of successful project engagements with NSW Government agencies.
