Sydney-based integrator ac3 has signed a deal to move NSW Department of Justice to an "everything-as-a-service" model.
The move to a complete X-as-a-service model is part of its migration to GovDC - the government's datacentre reform project.
The Department of Justice has worked with ac3 since 2007 and will continue its commercial partnership with the company into the next phase of DJ’s ICT transformation.
The NSW Department of Justice delivers legal, court and supervision services through a network of agencies including Corrective Services, Juvenile Justice, Courts and Tribunal Services and Trustee and Guardian.
NSW Department of Justice chief information officer, Aaron Liu, said the ac3 team had been managing the department's migration into the new GovDC environment.
"Moving to the ‘X-as-a-service’ model is the next stage in our plan to move away from having any on premise infrastructure,” he said.
According to a statement, the ‘X-as-a-service’ model aligns the NSW Government ICT Strategy and enables the Department to reduce cost, improve reliability and performance of its systems, driving service delivery up and capital costs down.
ac3 chief executive, Simon Xistouris, said he was very pleased to be working with 'DJ' on the project.
"We hope that many other government agencies will be able to benefit from the work DJ are doing and for the experience we are all gaining," he said.
Once the new services are in place the DJ will be looking for opportunities to share services, development and operational costs across different departments or even across governments.
